'Triumph' Remains at Cruise Terminal For Now

'Triumph' Remains at Cruise Terminal For Now

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -

Carnival cruise ship Triumph getting cozy at the Alabama Cruise Terminal, here for the second time in two months. Safely moored, with a tugboat lodged next to it just to be on the safe side. Crew members are staying on board despite the fact the ship still has no electricity. There was some talk of getting a generator hooked up to provide power later.

An announcement over the loud speaker on the ship announced that the phones on board were back up and running.

Sheila Gurganus with the cruise terminal says she doesn't know how long the ship plans to be docked there. Officials telling us it's likely BAE systems will be footing the bill for the moors that broke loose in Wednesday's hurricane-force winds. So, for crew onboard the ship--and for us on the ground--it continues to be a waiting game.
