LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - It's been five days since Carnival Cruise ship Triumph's propellor system caught fire, leaving 4,000 on board, stranded with no power, sewage or air conditioning. The ship was suppposed to hit Alabama Friday afternoon, but Carnival says because of rough waters, it probably won't dock until later in the evening.
A local Mid-Michigan woman is among those on board. Gina Howe is among the thousands who are stuck on board the ship. Eden Davis, her sister, says Howe took this cruise to honor her friend Laura, who died in August of cancer, and to spread her ashes.
"This cruise was meant to document and memorialize Laura's life. Laura, in spirit, is helping them through, certainly. I'm sure they've been anxious, but I'm hopeful they've been trying to make the best of the situation," said Davis.
Davis spoke with her sister Thursday afternoon and says more or less, she's okay. Gina is a diabetic and hasn't been able to eat much. Howe told her the conditions on the boat are less than desirable, from no air conditioning to battle the Gulf heat to no bathrooms.
"She shared that she did have to use bags to use the restroom--and they then needed to hand those over to crew members for proper discarding," said Davis.
Davis says Howe and the friend she took the cruise with are using Laura's spirit to get them through.
