Progress of the Triumph
Please this is not a opinion of lines thread............no koolaid, disney lovers, carnival can never do wrong, etc.... names. Just information on the progress of the Trumph and the crew and people ouboard.
As of 0800 this morning, the Carnival Triumph is under way to Mobile, Alabama, towed by 2 tugboats, one from the US and one from Mexico. She had a 4.5 degree starboard list. Due to the currents, winds and drift the vessel was closer to Mobile then Progresso and it makes sense not to fight to wind and current to tow her to Mexico.
She has only emergency power, some lighting, water and limite toilets. Food service is limited due to lack of galley power.
The Carnival Elation and Exstacy has transferred food and supplies to the triumph by meand of lifeboats.
She is expected to arrive at Mobile thursday. The port has a unused cruise terminal which will be available to the passingers and likely provide a good berth for the vessel, while the investigation and determination of what repairs will be needed.
The Mobile shipyard is nearby and has a top notch work force.
As I get more I will pass it on.
