Disabled Cruise Ship

The end is finally in sight for a disabled cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico. Tug boats should finish getting the Carnival cruise ship to shore in Alabama later today.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports from Miami:

The Carnival Triumph has four tugboats pulling into the channel for the port of Mobile. Ending a horrendous experience for cruisers. Engine fires, power losses, bathroom breakdowns. Though they might get a hot meal today...

(Thornton) "We have delivered additional provisions to the Carnival Triumph. That happened last night. And the ship is in excellent shape now, and will be fully provisioned to prove all the food services for the guests certainly by the time the ship docks later this evening."

Says Terry Thornton, a Carnival VP. The company and port officials think they can get the boat unloaded tonight.

In Miami, Eben Brown, FOX News Radio.
