Michigan Woman On Stranded Cruise Travels Home


LANSING, Mich. (WLN) - The woman from Mid-Michigan who was stranded for days on a crippled cruise ship is speaking out.

Gina Howe is back on dry land after Carnival's cruise ship Triumph docked in Alabama after midnight. She was bussed to a hotel and now flying back to Detroit.

She said the ship was a nightmare--many of those things we've heard about the conditions on the boat were true. She says she felt helpless, there wasn't much for her to do other than try to stay positive.

"It was deplorable. It was just horrible, horrible, horrible conditions. It just spewed raw sewage into our rooms. We camped out under the stars on the eleventh deck and like I said tried to be positive," said Howe.

Gina says she just cant wait to be home and the first thing she wants to do when she gets back to Michigan is hug her kids and get a Starbucks coffee. She adds, while she won't say "never," she "probably won't" ever take a cruise again.
