Passengers disembark Triumph cruise ship in Alabama

After four days at sea, with no plumbing on the Carnival Triumph cruise liner, passengers have finally reached land in Alabama.

Met with blankets, drinks and hot food, the passengers were let off the boat, where they would continue their journeys home by coach.

Passengers described overflowing toilets, with the ship's cabins and passages, soaked in raw sewage, after a fire in the engine room knocked out the ship's power and plumbing.
