Cruise Passengers Break Down On Bus

Cruise Passengers Break Down On Bus

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

70 frustrated passengers were on a charter bus from Mobile to New Orleans following the Carnival Conquest's dock in Mobile.

The bus broke down along I-10 before the Mississippi state line. Passengers began flooding the News 5 Newsroom with calls, frustrated.

"They're not helping any of the people here with hotels or anything, it's really bad," said a passenger.

The Carnival Conquest was forced to dock in Mobile Sunday afternoon after a tug boat sank in the Mississippi River, causing the port in New Orleans to shutdown.

The passengers thought they'd be back in New Orleans by nightfall, but that didn't happen for the busload of passengers wanting to get home.

"This is bad. It's hot, there's no air. Can't get off the bus. It's raining. Other buses are passing us by," said a passenger.

By 8:30 p.m. a replacement charter bus had arrived. The passengers loaded the bus and were enroute to New Orleans.
