After being disabled at sea for days, the Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph finally docked at Mobile, Ala. The Triumph pulled into port around 9:15 p.m. Central Time Thursday evening as anxious passengers lined the decks cheering loudly as they approached.
The Triumph is being pulled into a shipyard where investigations can begin. According NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway on Friday, a team of six investigators from the National Trasportation Safety Board will commence investigations along side the Bahamas Maritime Authority, which will serve as the primary investigative agency.
"The Bahamian government was taking the lead because the Triumph is a Bahamian-flagged vessel and it was in international waters at the time of the fire, Holloway said."
