Carnival Triumph return delayed until the middle of June

By Tom Stieghorst
Carnival Cruise Lines put off the return of service of the damaged Carnival Triumph until June 13, after a windstorm in Mobile, Ala. set back the repair work by 10 days.

Two additional five-day sailings of Triumph will be canceled, Carnival said.

Guests scheduled to be on the canceled cruises will get a full refund, reimbursed travel expenses and a 25% discount on a future cruise. Travel agent commissions will be protected.

Triumph is now scheduled to return about four months after an engine-room fire disabled the ship and forced it to be towed to Mobile.

The ship is now docked at the Mobile Cruise Terminal but it will eventually be repositioned to Freeport, Bahamas, because a drydock large enough to accommodate Triumph is not available in Mobile.
