The Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph is towed by the tug vessels Pioneer and Roland Falgout toward Mobile, Alabama, on February 13, 2013. The Triumph reported lost power due to an electrical fire in the engine room, on February 10, 2013 and has received assistance from the Coast Guard and sister cruise ships. Passengers on the stricken cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico are enduring a nightmare after days without power, waiting hours for sparse meals and relieving themselves in plastic bags, one said on February 14, 2013. The ship carries more than 4,000 people. It is being towed to Mobile, Alabama and is to arrive Thursday afternoon.
