    My first thought when I heard this? This is a ship that does not want to go back out!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    They'd better have a helicopter dump a load of holy water on that thing before another person gets on it.

    Triumph is trying to tell us something...

    The person isn't missing due to the Triumph breaking loose but rather due to the guard shack being blown into the water from near hurricane strength gust winds.

    Coast Guard officials said they saw no sign late Wednesday of the missing BAE Systems employee who was knocked into the water with a co-worker when near hurricane-strength winds blew their guard shack over. The other man was rescued.

    How about "Independence"?
    "Rogue"?
    "Rebel"?
    "My Way"?
    the "SS SOS"?

    Carnival won't reimburse Uncle Sam for ship rescues

    http://money.msn.com/now/post.aspx?p...6-a2149da30f48

    Carnival (CCL +1.36%), the world's largest cruise operator, has rejected a request from a powerful U.S. senator that it reimburse the U.S. government for the costs it incurs for rescuing the company's ships when they become disabled.

    According to Senator Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., the U.S. Coast Guard has responded to 90 "serious events" involving Carnival ships over the past five years, including the rescue of the Carnival Triumph (pictured) in February and the 2010 operation to assist the Carnival Splendor. The Coast Guard and Navy spent $4.2 million to assist the Triumph and Splendor, which were both hit with power failures, according to a report in Skift.com quoting Rockefeller. .............more..........

    Oh really? Well next time one of their ships founders, Carnival needs to have the Panamanian government help their passengers.

    Maybe then, US citizens will stop patronizing this cruise line.

    Isn't it bad luck to rename a ship?

    Maybe respelling of the name might be more appropriate....'Triumph' to 'Try Omph'.
