Passengers describe 'sewage running down the walls' and people acting like 'savages' [View all]

Aboard the crippled Carnival Triumph cruise ship, no one feels like celebrating.

Two days after a fire knocked out power to the ship and left it drifting 150 miles off the coast of Mexico, tugboats labored to drag the boat and its 4,200 weary and fed up passengers to its unscheduled final destination, Mobile, Alabama.

With few working toilets and its air-conditioning out of commission as the boat crawls along at 5 to 8 miles per hour, the Triumph has turned into a fetid nightmare that won't end for its passengers and crew until the boat docks on Thursday afternoon, according to ABC News.

“The odor is so bad it’s making them sick,” Brent Nutt, whose wife Bethany was on board, told CNN. “They’re vomiting and stuff all over the boat just from the odor. There’s feces all over the floor.”
