First Person: On Board Carnival Triumph

After more than five days disabled at sea, the Carnival Triumph finally docked in Mobile, Alabama last night. Because only one elevator on the ship was working, it took several hours for all the passengers to disembark.

The passengers soon told all the horror stories about the dismal conditions on the ship in first person. "It was like a sauna of sewage," Cindey Gill told the Los Angeles Times.

At least one, though, had praise for the crew. Passenger Parisa Safarzadeh wrote on CNN: "If it wasn't for the crew on board, all of us would be severely injured, starved or crazy. Crew members always had a smile on their face and a concern in their voice. Honestly, these people deserve more than compensation. They deserve a huge thank you for their enduring support, service and compassion."
