Carnival Triumph accidents

 Date, location  Accident / Incident Report

Carnival Triumph power loss incident 2014

(February 1, 2014)

  • Carnival Triumph cruise ship newsOn February 1, 2014 Carnival Triumph again was shortly in the “bad cruise ship news” – this time with an 8-minute power loss incident while on its way to Galveston TX from Cozumel Mexico. This time the Conquest ship arrived in Galveston TX as scheduled. According to the Carnival’s official statement, the minor power outage incident was caused by “electrical breaker failure”, only this time the new emergency backup generator power came on and functioned until needed, with all the hotel services and ship propulsion functioning normally.

Carnival Triumph mooring accident 2013

(April 3, 2013)

  • While wet-docked at the Mobile’s AL BAE Systems shipyard for repairs, due to strong winds (exceeding 65mph/105kph) the Triumph’s mooring lines broke loose and 4 of the pier’s bollards broke apart (thick posts to which the ship’s mooring lines were tied). The vessel drifted all the way over the channel and ran into a sand dredger ship positioned on the other side. The incident resulted in ~20ft/6m long gash in the stern between decks 4 & 5, starboard side, along with several hull plating punctures.
  • Later, assisted by tug-boats, Triumph was moved back to the Mobile Cruise Terminal. No injured among the 200 contract workers and about 600 crew, but 1 shipyard worker died, another one was injured when the pier’s end section collapsed.
  • Two additional cruises were cancelled by CCL to repair damages caused by the Mobile shipyard incident (final repairs to be completed in Bahamas). The ship entered service June 13th (good thing it’s Thursday and not Friday). Passengers compensation – full refund, reimbursement for travel expenses, 25% future cruise discount.
  • Total damage cost was US$2,9 mill, of which US$2,7 mill affected the Triumph cruise ship.
  • (Update May 8, 2013) Triumph departed Mobile AL under its own power moving to Freeport to enter a dry dock (see the “refurbished” link above) for final repairs and enhancements, along with implementation of new Fun Ship 2.0 features.
  • (Update Feb 2014) NTSB (USA’s National Transportation Safety Board) issued a report about the Triumph’s mooring incident. Reports says, the probable cause for this incident was the unfortunate successive 20 mooring lines failure (affixed 10 forward, 10 aft). The NTSB report also says BAE Systems knew about the bollards’ poor condition regarding their bigger load capability.

The CCL Triumph ship’s enhancement, refurbishment/renovation and Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades cost the company US$115 million in total.

Carnival Triumph fire accident 2013

(February 10, 2013 – engine room fire)

Carnival Triumph accidents, incidents reports at ShipCruise.org

  • On its 4day Western Caribbean itinerary from Galveston TX the ship experienced an aft engine room fire early on Feb 10 (Sunday morning) and is without propulsion in the Gulf of Mexico (about 241km off the Yucatan Peninsula) since that time. The fire was soon extinguished, there are no injured among both passengers and crew. On this sailing there are 3143 guests and 1086 crew on board. The activation of the ship’s automatic fire suppression system resulted in a power loss, which left it without air conditioning, elevators, toilets, kitchen equipment (hot meals), and for a time – without its freshwater system. On Monday (Feb 11) the ship’s technicians restored the freshwater system, the technical staff on board has been also successful in gradually restoring aux power to operate the ship’s basic hotel functions – public/cabin toilets are now operational (though not in all sections of the ship), power is restored to some of the elevators and also in the Lido buffet.
  • The first decision was to tow the ship to Progreso, Mexico (being the closest port) from where passengers could fly back to US. Two tugboats were sent to help her (one from Mexico, one from Mobile, Alabama). Additional technical and guest service personnel was also send to the ship. Meanwhile, Carnival Legend helped the Triumph passengers providing them with food and supplies. However, due to strong currents, the ship has drifted about 90ml north and that’s why Carnival decided to tow it to Mobile AB instead of Progreso. There were 900 guests on board traveling without their passports, which was just another reason Alabama to be the preferable choice. From Mobile, passengers were bused to New Orleans LA, where 1500 hotelrooms were reserved. On Wednesday, a Coast Guard helicopter delivered a set of electrical generator and cables to provide additional power for the ship. At 12:40 pm EST Customs and Border Patrol personnel boarded the ship to help speed up the customs-immigration process when Triumph arrived in Mobile AB.
  • Passengers compensations: CCL announced officially that guests will receive a full refund for the voyage (inclusive of gratuities), plus all transfers and transportation expenses. Passengers will receive a future cruise credit equal to the amount paid for this voyage (it means a free Carnival cruise, 3-5 day itinerary), an extra $500 cash per person, plus reimbursement of all onboard purchases (with the exception of their gift shop/art purchases and casino charges) which means free alcohol/drinks. Passengers with cars parked at the Galveston port will be bused from the Houston airport to Galveston TX. The port will issue refunds or free parking vouchers (on future sailings) to customers on the current Triumph cruise. On all cancelled cruises CCL offered a 25% discount for switching to another 3 to 5 day cruise or a 15% discount for a 6+ days sailing, plus a full refund of the fare, nonrefundable transportation costs, prepaid shore excursions, gratuities, all Gov taxes/fees.
  • Carnival money. Industry analysts have estimated the Triumph accident could cost Carnival Corporation as much as 10 cents per CCL share, which is nearly US$80 million in lost revenue, passenger reimbursements, repair costs, etc. The incident also could take a toll on future CCL bookings. It comes at the year’s peak time for bookings (known as “Wave Season”), but there’s no any significant drop in bookings (at least for now). The lack of injuries and also the headline-snatching news for the pope’s resignation resulted in less media exposure than this accident otherwise might have gotten.
  • With a great number of cancelled departures, Triumph entered a dry-dock for the necessary repairs and sanitation. The ship will be out of service through mid June, 2013.

Bad things do happen sometimes, and sometimes ships do experience bad luck – just like all things human, and it’s simply part of life. Don’t feel discouraged to enjoy this magnificent Carnival Cruise Lines ship in the future because of some unfortunate events in its past! Integrated with Carnival cruise news.
