MOBILE, AL — On Thursday more than 4,000 passengers and crew members on a damaged cruise ship are expected to arrive in Mobile, Alabama. Passengers aboard the ship expected a relaxing Caribbean vacation but instead have endured major headaches. A fire in the stranded boat's engine room on Sunday has caused passengers and cruise ship employees to suffer a number of inconveniences including very little food, no electricity, air conditioning or working restrooms. U.S. Coast Guard tug boats are helping the Carnival cruise liner, Triumph, reach land. The cruise line has apologized and has canceled the next 12 voyages scheduled for Triumph.
