MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The disabled Carnival cruise ship Triumph is being moved from the Alabama dock where it discharged its weary passengers and crew after five days at sea paralyzed by an engine-room fire.
Tugs pulled the 14-story ship away from the dock in Mobile on Friday. The ship was being moved backward down a waterway in the direction of a shipyard where city officials said it will be repaired.
Meanwhile, passengers who finally escaped the ship Triump are on the move. Some checked into the comfort of hotels, while others headed home on buses or charter flights after five numbing days at sea on a ship paralyzed by an engine-room fire.
