Cruise from hell continues as bus to airport breaks down and plane experiences electrical failure

Weary Triumph passengers who endured four long, filthy days at sea could do nothing but laugh as first the bus and then the plane that Carnival chartered to get them home Friday suffered mechanical failures.

Passengers were shaking their heads in disbelief as their bus broke down around 2:30 a.m. on an Alabama road, only to face another delay hours later at the New Orleans airport when their plane was grounded for about 90 minutes for an electrical failure.

Friday's travels marked the end of an extended nightmare that began with the fire Feb. 10, three days into a four-day cruise from Galveston, Tex. to Cozumel, Mexico.

The powerless boat drifted northward, and 3,143 passengers and 1,086 crewmembers were stuck without hot water or working toilets.

2. How utterly dreadful! And one can be sure they weren't given the proper forks

for eating this, either

I'm going to shut myself in my room and have a quiet attack of the vapors while trying not to think about it all. Where is the lavender water?
