CARNIVAL TRIUMPH

IMO 9138850

Registered Owner: Utopia Cruises Inc. - a Carnival Corp.& Plc. company. Operator: Carnival Cruise Line - USA

 Carnival Triumph and Carnival Victory are slightly different from the Destiny. However all three are called Destiny class.
Febr.10-2013 Carnival Triumph experienced an engine room fire while the vessel was sailing approximately 150 miles off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The ship’s automatic fire extinguishing systems activated and the fire was contained to the aft engine room. At this time, the fire is fully extinguished. No casualties or injuries to guests or crew have been reported. The vessel is currently without propulsion and the ship is operating on emergency generator power. The ship's technical crew is continuing to assess the damage and attempting to restore power. In the meantime, a tugboat is being dispatched to the ship's location in the event it is needed. All appropriate authorities including U.S. Coast Guard have been notified. A tugboat is en route to the ship's location and will tow the vessel to Progreso, Mexico, which is the closest port to the ship’s current location. This will enable us to disembark guests and get them home as quickly as possible. The ship is expected to arrive in Progreso Wednesday afternoon and guests will be flown from there back to the U.S.

Update Febr.12 Earlier this evening, the first of two tugboats arrived and is tied up to the ship with the second expected in the early hours of Tuesday morning. We had originally planned to tow the ship to Progreso, Mexico, the closest port to the ship’s location early Sunday. Since that time, the ship has drifted about 90 miles north due to strong currents. This now puts the ship nearly equidistant to Mobile, Alabama and given the strength of the currents, it is preferable to head north to Mobile, rather than attempt to tow against them. We now expect to arrive in Mobile sometime on Thursday, roughly the same time the ship would have arrived in Progreso given the distance the ship has traveled.

Update Febr.14Towed by three tugboats, the ship arrived at terminal in Mobile, Alabama, around Thursday 4 p.m. eastern time .
It's been a nightmare five days for the 3,143 passengers and 1,086 crew members on board  where a fire broke out in the engine room early Sunday. Much of the ship's electrical power went down in the fire, causing widespread malfunctions, including taking out sanitary systems. Passengers have reported sewage sloshing around in hallways, flooded rooms and trouble getting enough to eat. "It's disgusting. It's the worst thing ever,said the passenger. In 2010, the Carnival Splendor lost power after an engine room fire, leaving it drifting off the Pacific coast of Mexico. Splendor is a slighty bigger but it is the same basic design as the Triumph. Carnival has canceled a dozen voyages scheduled between February 11 and April 13.

June 2013 Following extensive enhancements and upgrades, Carnival Triumph arrived in Galveston yesterday and will return to service June 13-2013, resuming its year-round schedule of four- and five-day cruises to Mexico.

Oct.-2008 Add balconies to a number of cabins on three ships during upcoming drydocks over the next few months. Staterooms on the Carnival Triumph,Carnival Destiny and Carnival Liberty that currently feature floor-to-ceiling windows will be retrofitted with private balconies, creating a total of 48 additional 230-square-foot verandah staterooms on these vessels.
