Foul Stench & Heat On Stranded Cruise Ship

Passengers aboard the stranded Carnival cruise ship "Triumph" say there are few working toilets and the temperatures in the cabins are sweltering causing a stench in the vessel.

An engine fire Sunday cut the ship's power 150 miles from shore. It's been stranded in the Gulf of Mexico ever since.

Operators said the ship has drifted so far north that they will tow the ship to Mobile, AL, instead of their original plan for Progreso, Mexico.

The ship should arrive in Mobile on Thursday. Passengers will fly home from the town's airport and receive a full refund.

No one was injured from the engine fire.

If you have friends or family from Texoma on the Carnival cruise ship that's stuck in the Gulf of Mexico please contact Newschannel 6.
