Carnival: Snapped Towline Delayed Ship's Arrival

Posted: Updated:

A Carnival official says a snapped towline has delayed the disabled Triumph's expected arrival in Mobile, Alabama.

Terry Thornton said about 3:25 p.m. Central time that the cruise ship was seven to 10 hours from port.

Earlier Thursday, the ship had been expected to arrive in the afternoon.

Passengers onboard reported overflowing toilets, sewage backed up in showers and people getting sick.

Thornton also said that passengers would carry their own luggage once they arrive in Alabama and that only one elevator is functioning on the Triumph.

An engine-room fire Sunday left the ship powerless. More than 4,000 people are on board the Triumph, and passengers face long bus rides or other travel hassles to get home once they arrive in Alabama. (AP)
