Stepping off the Carnival Triumph — the filthy, sweltering cruise ship that was stranded in the Gulf of Mexico for five days after an engine fire knocked out power — wasn't the end of the travel nightmare for some passengers.
A bus carrying Triumph passengers from Mobile, Ala., where the ship docked late Thursday, to New Orleans broke down Friday, Carnival Cruise Lines confirmed to NBC News. The company said that another bus picked up the passengers and they continued toward New Orleans.
Other buses from Mobile reached New Orleans without incident Friday, and some passengers boarded charter flights for Houston, near the ship’s port of Galveston.
