The Carnival Cruise Lines ship Splendor, currently dead in the water in the Pacific Ocean

The passengers of the Carnival Triumph, a cruise ship of Carnival Cruise Lines, are literally lost at sea floundering for the basic amenities promised by a luxury cruise as reported in foxnews.com of dated 12th of February 2013.

The ship has on board 3143 passengers and 1086 crew menbers and had left Galveston, Texas and was suposed to return to the same port after completion of the tour but would now have to be towed to Alabama.

The ship had apparently suffered an engine-room fire and is at present adrift in the Gulf of Mexico - with the passengers denied basic amenities like bathrooms, food and hot coffee and have resigned themselves to their fate with a new destination in Mobile, Alabama instead of the original destination of Progreso in Mexico.

Gerry Cahill, the President of the Cruise Lines and its CEO has explained that the change has been necessitated because of a drift away by nearly 90-miles as a result of strong ocean currents and Triumph would now be shifted by tug boats to its new destination.

Some food supplies had been made available by transferring suplies from another Carnival cruise ship which had been brought alongside and, it seems Carnival has agreed to refund full fares to all passengers and has also cancelled the two subsequent voyages of Triumph - the rogue ship.
