Carnival Cruise Worker Goes Missing After Ship Breaks Loose And Drifts Away!

carnival cruise worker goes missing after triumph ship breaks loose

It looks like there's a new story to add to Carnival Cruise's laundry list of recent bad publicity.

A shipyard worker has reportedly gone missing after the disabled Triumph cruise ship broke free from its mooring in Mobile, Alabama.

If that name sounds familiar, it's probably because it's the same boat that broke down in the Gulf of Mexico, leaving passengers stranded in a poop-filled cruiser for FIVE DAYS!!!

Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen says the ship didn't make it too far, but it's still unclear where the worker was when it broke free. The U.S. Coast Guard believes the boat began to drift away due to the high winds reported in the area Wednesday afternoon.

Petty Officer Bill Colclough and his crew are currently searching the Mobile River for the missing man.

Hopefully the worker is OK and Carnival can put and end to the horrible publicity they've been getting!

    I love ya Perez, but you need to check your stories. It is not a Carnival worker who is missing, but someone who was on the pier at the same time. Even Yahoo states it's unrelated.

    It is a dock worker that is missing. He was in a guard shack that blew into the water. The boat did break free, but it is 2 separate events that happened in the same port. Facts please. Carnival doesn't need any more bad publicity. Our economy doesn't need another company to go out of business for untruths.

    If it's any consolation, when I worked aboard a ship our entire crew were left stranded at sea after 9-11, yes we floated around the Mediterranean aimlessly for about a month! That cruise line had file for chapter 11 bankruptcy. Stressful at that time

    Let's home they find that person safe and sound.

    Karma….karma, that's what this cruise line got for being sucky with their guest. When you take a cruise out in the middle of nowhere things can go bad and your stuck

    It was a dock worker that went missing when he and another worker's guard shack was blown into the water by the storm. Their accident had nothing to do with Carnival, nor were they Carnival employees. The two incidents were totally unrelated. May I suggest some fact checking in the future?
