These are the horrendous pictures emerging today of the putrid conditions on board the Carnival cruise ship as beleaguered passengers remain at sea after five days of overflowing sewage, unbearable stenches and makeshift beds in hallways.
The ship has began to slowly inch towards shore again after drifting off course because of a broken line to a tugboat pulling it into port, the coast guard said. It has now been fixed.
Carnival reassured guests and their anxious families that they would be on dry land in Mobile, Alabama between 10pm and midnight (ET) on Thursday. The company estimates it will take four or five hours for passengers to disembark.
The final stage in the Triumph's arduous journey has been excruciatingly slow for exhausted passengers who can now see land from 39 miles out to sea.
