Carnival 'Triumph' returning to the seas


The infamous Carnival Triumph is returning to the seas, nearly four months after the ship spent several days floating adrift in the Gulf of Mexico after an engine fire crippled the ship.

According to Carnival, the Triumph arrived at her homeport of Galveston, TX on Tuesday for her return to service. The nearly 900-foot ship departs on a sold-out cruise to Mexico on Thursday. 

Carnival says the ship underwent $115 million in repairs and upgrades in Alabama and at a dry dock in the Bahamas.
