Passengers Finally Leaving Disabled Cruise Ship


By News Department

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The first of some 3,000 passengers are starting to come off a cruise ship disabled for days at sea.

At about 10:15 p.m. Central time some aboard the Triumph were walking down an enclosed gangway to a terminal at Mobile, Ala.

As people started disembarking, others on board waiting were chanting, ``Let me off, let me off!''

Carnival CEO Gerry Cahill apologized on the public address system to passengers.

Passengers have the option of a seven-hour bus ride to the Texas cities of Galveston or Houston or a two-hour trip to New Orleans. Buses are standing by to take them to their next stop.
