Carnival Confirms: Triumph Leaves Today

Posted: Updated:

12:23 PM UPDATE:

The Mobile Bar Pilots say the Triumph will begin departure at 2PM. 

 

 

11:10 AM UPDATE:

A Carnival spokesman says the ship is slated to leave Mobile today.  A time has not been confirmed. 

 

 

 

Nearly two months after limping into the Alabama Cruise Terminal the Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph may set sail on her own power today.  Terminal General Manager Sheila Gurganus says she's been told the ship could leave later today between 3 and 6 PM.  A Carnival spokesman says it would happen today. 

 

Triumph's exit would close the book on what has been a storied and tragic time for the ship, its crew and its passengers.  The ship arrived in Mobile on Valentine's day full of passengers and crew who had spend days stranded at sea with no power and few of the amenities commonly associated with cruise ships.  On April 3rd high winds broke the ship's moorings at BAE Ship Systems.  Triumph crashed into a nearby dock sending two men into the water.  One of those men, John "Buster" Johnson died as a result of the accident.  On April 24th the ship's crew had to be evacuated after a gas barge exploded just a few yards away in the Mobile River.
