The Carnival Triumph cruise ship docks at the port of Mobile, Alabama, February 14, 2013. The 893-foot (272 meter) vessel, now notorious for reports of raw sewage from overflowing toilets, has been without propulsion and running on emergency generator power since Sunday, when an engine room fire left it adrift in the Gulf of Mexico.
