OutFront tonight – investigating the cruise ship nightmare
What caused the crippling fire that left more than 4200 people stranded at sea for five days and could it have been prevented?
The Carnival Triumph was towed to a shipyard in Mobile, Alabama today after unloading all of its passengers early this morning. Investigators are now trying to find out how the engine room fire started and why it knocked out the ship's power.
For five days the ship's passengers and crew were stuck in horrific conditions, living without hot water, limited food and few operating toilets.
The Triumph is expected to be out of commission until at least April for cleaning and repairs.
We've asked Carnival Cruise Lines to come OutFront multiple times, but so far they have declined. CNN’s Sandra Endo has been following the ship's movements and has the latest on the investigation.
