Passengers have described the overflowing toilets, with the ship's cabins and passages, soaked in raw sewage.
It is estimated it will take around five hours to unload the ship which is carrying 3,143 passengers and 1,086 crew members.
The National Transportation Safety Board has opened an investigation, after Carnival Cruise Lines acknowledged that the ship had been plagued by other mechanical problems in the weeks before the engine-room blaze.
