Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph has been stranded in the Gulf of Mexico after a fire in the Ship’s engine room on Sunday, leaving the ship adrift at sea since Sunday. Reportedly, a total of 3,143 passengers and 1,086 crewmembers aboard the ship had to endure foul conditions such as cold food, no hot water, overflowing toilets and sweltering indoor temperatures.
The Triumph had a fire in its engine room as the vessel was sailing 150 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula.
Today, two tugboats will tow the Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph to port Progreso, Mexico. The ship expects to reach port sometime on February 13.
