Carnival Triumph cruise ship adrift again

The initial stranding of the cruise ship drew national attention -- and calls for investigations from lawmakers -- when passengers on board complained to media outlets about squalid conditions on the ship, which they attributed to bathrooms malfunctioning and food spoiling without refrigeration.

The ship, which was carrying 4,000 passengers at the time, lost power after a fire in the ship's engine room.

The incident Wednesday was first reported by Mobile TV station WKRG.

After the February incident, Carnival offered refunds and vouchers for future cruises to passengers who were on board the Triumph during that incident.

The WKRG report Wednesday said that workers were making repairs to the ship when it broke loose.
