Were you trapped on the Carnival Triumph?
When you boarded the Carnival Triumph, no doubt you expected to spend four wonderful days cruising to Cozumel, Mexico. Instead you were trapped on a crippled ship with no power, air conditioning, heat, or functioning toilets. You expected to enjoy sumptuous meals and instead you had to survive on limited food such as candy and condiments.
If you were on the Carnival Triumph, you might have suffered from food and water deprivation, heat exhaustion, or toxic contamination from raw sewage. Undoubtedly, you have questions about who was responsible for your suffering and possible injury. If an investigation indicates that Carnival Cruise Lines is responsible, you could be eligible for compensation.
Questions have already been raised about whether the Carnival Triumph should have been on the seas for the cruise to Cozumel. Could the fire that destroyed the Carnival Triumph’s propulsion and power systems have been prevented? The fact is, just a few weeks before the Triumph was crippled, the 14-year-old cruise ship suffered mechanical problems on a similar cruise to Mexico.
According to media reports, company officials claim the two events are not related, but experts predict that many of the trapped passengers will connect the dots and file legal actions. More than 4,200 passengers and crew members were trapped on ship during the week-long ordeal.
