Cruise Ship on Emergency Power After Fire

Passengers on the fire-damaged Carnival Triumph are reporting uncomfortable conditions that include a lack of running water and few functional toilets, according to friends and relatives who have received brief texts and phone calls from the ship.

"We have no power AT ALL, which means we can't use the toilets, wash our hands, or take a shower," one passenger texted from the vessel, according to a relative who posted the text on cruise fan site CruiseCritic.com.
