Carnival Triumph Returns To Service2013-06-17
The troubled Carnival Triumph begins a new chapter Thursday in Galveston, Texas. The ship sets sail on its first cruise since February’s engine fire left it adrift in the Gulf of Mexico, with more than 4,200 passengers enduring power outages, overflowing toilets and food shortages. Now outfitted with new emergency power capabilities and additional fire safety technology, the ship is fully booked with 3,350 passengers on a four-day voyage to Cozumel, Mexico, Carnival says. It’s scheduled to depart at 4 p.m. CT.
