(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - 4,200 people who were aboard the Carnival "Triumph" are happy to be back on land.

Thousands of passengers erupted into cheers as the ship finally docked Thursday night in Mobile, Alabama.

They showed video and photos of the squalid conditions they endured--sewage soaked floors, plastic bags as toilets, tent camps on deck.

Carnival is offering $500 cash, a full refund, and discounts on future cruises to the passengers.

After docking late Thursday night, some passengers boarded buses to Texas and Louisiana.

A bus headed for New Orleans actually broke down.

An investigation is underway to determine what caused the fire in the engine room.

Carnival has cancelled Triumph's next 12 cruises.

The company also has admitted that Triumph had mechanical problems weeks before the engine fire.
