CARNIVAL TRIUMPH Breaks Loose from Shipyard Docks in Heavy Winds

CARNIVAL TRIUMPH continues to have more than her share of woes. You may recall how, back on February 10, as CARNIVAL TRIUMPH was sailing about 150 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula, an engine room fire took out her electrical power. Fortunately, the fire itself was put out fairly quickly, but CARNIVAL TRIUMPH was first adrift and then under tow for days before being towed to Mobile, Alabama, all the while with 3,800 passengers and crew on board. During that time, the emergency power generator proved inadequate to the needs of all those people, resulting in significant hygiene and general health issues.

Then, on April 3, CARNIVAL TRIUMPH broke loose of her moorings at the BAE Shipyard in Mobile, AL, shipyard, where she has continued to lay for repairs, and drifted into a cargo ship. One of the starboard stern decks, well above the waterline, sustained a 20-foot gash. None of the crew or repair workers on board were reported injured in this latest incident, and she is back at her moorings.

Unrelated to CARNIVAL TRIUMPH going adrift, but as a result of the same heavy winds, a nearby BAE guard shack and two men who were working in it were blown off the dock and into the water. One of the men was rescued, but crews are still on the look-out for the other man, who remains missing, although the formal search for him has been suspended.
