PostSubject: Passengers stranded on cruise ship   Tue Feb 12, 2013 10:48 am

Passengers aboard a cruise vessel stranded in the Gulf of Mexico had limited access to toilets, food and hot coffee on Monday as they waited for two tugboats to arrive to tow them to Mexico, Carnival Cruise Lines have said.

The Carnival Triumph has been floating aimlessly about 150 miles (240km) off the Yucatan Peninsula since a fire erupted in the aft engine room early on Sunday, knocking out the ship's propulsion system. No-one was injured and the fire was extinguished. The ship has been operating on backup generator power since the incident, the Carnival statement said.
