Broken down cruise ship suffers new setback story image
GULF OF MEXICO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The disabled Carnival cruise ship 'Triumph,' has hit another setback.

Earlier Thursday afternoon, the ship hit another hiccup and had to stop again as it was being towed to Alabama.

This time, the problem was a broke towline.

The ship is moving again, but it's been an agonizing trip for the 4,000 people on board.

The ship is expected to finally dock Thursday evening in Mobile, but reports say it is still several hours away.

A fire knocked out power on Sunday.

Since then, passengers say life aboard the ship has been miserable and disgusting.

There has been limited access to food and bathrooms.

Passengers say toilets have been replaced by plastic bags, and they're forced to eat onion sandwiches.

Carnival is providing transportation and hotel rooms for the passengers.

The company is also giving out full refunds for the cruise, a credit towards future cruises, and $500 cash.

Triumph's next 12 cruises have been cancelled while the ship undergoes repairs, and a major cleanup.
