Carnival Bus Breaks Down Carrying Passengers Who Were Aboard Cruise Ship
MOBILE, Ala. (CBS Houston/AP) — Passengers who were aboard the disabled Carnival cruise ship couldn’t even catch a break on land.
CBS News reports that one of the buses carrying passengers from Mobile, Ala., to New Orleans broke down.
Over 4,000 people on the Carnival Triumph were stranded in the Gulf of Mexico for five days after an engine room fire disabled the ship.
The cruise ship finally pulled into port, with the help of four tugboats, early Friday morning.
It took about four hours for all passengers to disembark.
Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said Triumph guests had three options: board a bus straight to Galveston, Texas, to retrieve cars parked at the ship’s departure port, take a bus to New Orleans to stay at a hotel before a charter flight home or have family or friends pick them up in Mobile.
