The disabled cruise ship Carnival Triumph  has been taken under tow on February 11 and proceeding to Mobile, Alabama.  Initial reports stated the vessel was to be towed to Pregreso, Mexico, but the Triumph had drifted some 90 miles further north making Mobile the closer destination.

The vessel continues to operate on backup generators providing passengers with limited facilities.  No reports of injuries to passengers or crew. Conditions on board were reported as difficult as many toilets have stopped functioning and passengers are sleeping in hallways.

The Coast Guard has announced a joint investigation with the NTSB and Bahamas Maritime Authority into the incident.  Investigators are expected in Mobile when the Triumph arrives.
