A Triumph for Passengers of Carnival! Sort of ...

Finally! After several days stuck at sea with toilets overflowing, amid yet another fire in an engine room, Carnival Cruise Lines' ship Triumph has docked at Mobile Alabama, and hundreds of passengers now have the satisfaction of knowing they are among the first to view the docks of Mobile, Alabama from such a large ship. The Triumph, which has been limping through the Gulf of Mexico since Sunday, is the biggest cruise ship to ever try to dock in the Alabama port city, which is just across the Florida state line from another port city, Pensacola, which has never been visited by the Carnival Triumph.


Of course, being glib as we are, we could not let this news opportunity pass without pointing out the ship could just as easily have docked at ports anywhere along the Florida coastline. The ship first became incapacitated while off the coast of the Yucatan. While we understand not wanting to stop anywhere there might be a questionable water supply, given the overflowing toilet situation and the nearness of Key West, at least compared to Mobile, one has to question the wisdom of limping all the way north to Mobile, Alabama.


The ship was photographed by news crews far and wide, but this shot from NBC news clearly shows how desperate the situation had been on board the vessel, which is completely dark against the backdrop of emergency crews who were eagerly awaiting a glimpse of the biggest thing to happen to Mobile since the oil slicks arrived from the destroyed oil rig, Deep Water Horizon, in 2010.





Meanwhile, passengers aboard the wounded Triumph were forced to stay on board the ship for several hours longer, due to logistical constraints. It appears the fact the ship has been on its way to Mobile for several days was still not enough lead time for the Mobile dock workers and emergency crews, none of whom could quite give up that slow Southern lifestyle, even for the dookey-laden passengers of another failed Carnival Cruise.
