Carnival cruises cancels next trips for stricken ship

HOUSTON — Carnival Cruise Lines has canceled a dozen more voyages aboard the Triumph and acknowledged that the ship had been plagued by other mechanical problems in the weeks before an engine-room fire left it powerless in the Gulf of Mexico.

The company’s announcement on Wednesday came as the Triumph was being towed to a port in Mobile, Ala., with more than 4,000 people on board, some of whom have complained to relatives that conditions on the ship are dismal and that they have limited access to food and bathrooms.
