    Two tugboats are towing a fire-damaged Carnival Cruise ship that became stranded in the Gulf of Mexico on Feb. 10, 2013. An engine room fire disabled the cruise ship Triumph about 150 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula with 3,143 passengers and 1,086 crew members on board.

    The ship is being slowly towed to shore and is expected to dock in Mobile, Ala., on Thursday if weather permits. The vessel is without air conditioning, many working toilets and some restaurant service. Passengers, many whom are sleeping in tents on deck, have told ABC News the smell on the ship is foul.

    Passenger Shelly Crosby told ABC News in a text message that many people are sleeping in tents set up on the ship's deck. Passengers had limited access to bathrooms, food and hot coffee Monday. With lack of power, there's no refrigeration so the stink on board is apparently intense, which is one of the reasons many people are choosing to sleep on the deck.

    The head of Carnival Cruise Lines said the British-U.S.-owned company was working hard to ensure the thousands of passengers were as comfortable as possible while the vessel was being towed. "I need to apologize to our guests and to our families that have been affected by a very difficult situation," Carnival Cruise Lines president and CEO Gerry Cahill said at a Feb. 12, 2013, news conference.
