September 24, 2013 The world's largest cruise line has experienced a series of problems aboard its ships, ranging from fires and power outages at sea to the wreck of the Costa Concordia.
May 8, 2013 The Carnival Cruise ship Triumph is on the move, having left the terminal in Mobile, Ala., where it was forced to dock in February after severe problems with its engines led to its being towed across the Gulf of Mexico.
March 15, 2013 Passengers stranded in St. Maarten aboard the Carnival Dream are to be flown home, while Carnival Legend limps back to Tampa after a "technical issue" in one of its propulsion units.
February 15, 2013 "It was horrible, just horrible" said one passenger, tears welling in her eyes. Tales of hoarding and gross conditions make the five-day experience in the Gulf of Mexico sound like one very unpleasant trip.
February 14, 2013 Carnival says its cruise ship the Triumph will dock in Mobile, Ala., late Thursday night, as it has taken longer than expected to tow the stricken 100,000-ton ship across the Gulf of Mexico. The ship's 3,143 passengers have coped with sewage problems and a lack of ventilation, but a passenger says they've had plenty of food.
February 13, 2013 With the Carnival cruise ship Triumph and its 3,143 passengers now being towed to Mobile, Ala., more reports are emerging from passengers on the ship that lost engine power early Sunday. They describe a tent city on the upper deck and continuing problems with the sewage system.
February 12, 2013 Passengers on the cruise ship Triumph, set adrift Sunday after an engine fire, must now wait until Thursday before what was billed as a four-day cruise finally ends. Strong currents pushed the ship an extra 90 miles into the Gulf of Mexico, foiling plans to tow it to Progreso, Mexico. The ship is now headed for Mobile, Alabama.
February 11, 2013 More than 3,000 cruise ship passengers who thought they'd be heading home today have instead been told they'll remain in the Gulf of Mexico until Wednesday, stranded by an engine fire that set their ship, the Triumph, adrift. Outages of onboard power and sewer systems have been reported.
