Tugs are being sent to tow her back to the mainland US.

I love the Carnival ships, they are FABULOUS! Its like being in Las Vegas, except you are on a ship. I went on a 7 night cruise around the Western Caribbean on the CARNIVAL TRIUMPH in 2003....it was so much fun!

Hope they get her back safely alongside soon.
