Carnival cruise ship still powerless

Posted: Tuesday, February 12, 2013 12:00 am

GALVESTON — Passengers stranded on the Carnival Triumph may be as desperate to get off the cruise ship as a Houston couple and their 30-person wedding party is to get on it.

The Triumph has been floating off the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula without electricity or propulsion since one of its engines caught fire Sunday.
