MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The more than 4,000 passengers and crew on the Carnival Triumph are hoping that this afternoon will be the end of their cruise.
Their ship lost power in a weekend engine-room fire while in the Gulf of Mexico, and they're being towed to port in Mobile, Ala.
Passengers have been telling their relatives on land of unsanitary and uncomfortable conditions, which Carnival Cruise Lines disputes.
