Carnival Triumphbroke mooring in Alabama
      #1499912 - 04/13/13 11:43 AM (107.9.16.124)

Just now getting to post -- strong winds ripped triumph from the pier had to be chased down by tugs, reportedly has a hole in the hull. More importantly a worker was missing.

I'll bet that boat doesn't leave Mobile with the name Triumph or it will be doing$50one way cruises from FLL to Freeport --- I might pay for that and bring my own food and keep my life jacket on.

Wow, that happened a while ago, maybe a week or two? There were a lot of pictures online of the damage. I don't know whether they ever found the missing worker, although it didn't technically have anything to do with Triumph. He was a dock worker in a security booth that got blown off the pier. I have to assume that he died, as there was no news about him later, that I saw. What a shame.
