What the Future Holds for the Troubled Triumph

What the Future Holds for the Troubled Triumph

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Time is ticking for Carnival Triumph. It has 35 days to get to the Bahamas, under go repairs and a complete interior makeover, then make it's way back to Galveston, Texas for a cruise that will set sail on June 13.

Triumph arrived in Mobile after five days of being stranded in the gulf with no power or running water. There were pictures of sewage running down walls, water sloshing around in hallways, and beds pulled out onto the deck.

Carnival has a lot of work to do to the interior of the ship and also the exterior.

While it was docked in Mobile, a wind storm broke the ship away from it's moorings, and it crashed into the dredge, Wheeler, causing damage to the stern of the ship.

After repairs, Carnival will make the trip home to Galveston for its first, fun adventure back at sea-- a four day cruise to the Western Caribbean.

But, would you want to be on that first cruise after all the troubles Triumph has had? Travel agency, Cape Travel, say with a little over a month until Triumph sets sail with passengers on board, the cruise hasn't booked up yet.

In fact, Carnival still has availability in all four categories of rooms they offer.

Triumph has definitely been on an interesting journey since it last pulled out of Galveston, Texas, and hopefully soon, Triumph's troubles will be nothing but a memory and maybe something to laugh about in the future.
