Last February, the Carnival Triumph set sail from Texas. Days later, in the middle of a 7-day Mexico cruise, a fire broke out in the engine room and caused the ship to be towed back to the United States. According to CNN AC360, which aired the video below last night, Carnival knew that only 4 out of 6 generators were operational at the time the cruise started, and knew of a generator fire hazard across its fleet of ships.
The result was a complete fiasco. To read our previous entry on the situation at the time, click here: Fire on Carnival Cruise Ship for the second time – Cruise Passengers stranded in the middle of the ocean
