Carnival’s Triumph Was Detained After Repairs, Coast Guard Says

Carnival Corp. (CCL)’s Triumph, the cruise ship that was stranded in the Gulf of Mexico with passengers aboard in February, was detained after repairs because the U.S. Coast Guard found deficiencies, an agency official said.

The Coast Guard found “three serious deficiencies” in its first inspection, Rear Admiral Joseph Servidio, assistant commandant for prevention policy, testified at a Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee hearing today. The problems were corrected and the ship will be subject to quarterly examinations for three years, he said.
