The cruise ship Carnival Triumph makes its way up Mobile Bay assisted by tug boats near Dauphin Island, Alabama, February 14, 2013. Passengers on a stricken cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico are enduring a nightmare after days without power, waiting hours for sparse meals and relieving themselves in plastic bags, one said February 14, 2013. The ship Triumph, owned by Carnival, suffered an engine room fire Sunday, February 11, 2013, that left it disabled and adrift as it carried more than 4,000 people. It is being towed to Mobile, Alabama and was to arrive Thursday afternoon, February 14, 2013. Meanwhile, the sunny and pleasant cruise people paid for has turned in a gruesome, smelly ordeal.
