HOUSTON - Some passengers who fled the disabled Carnival cruise ship Triumph and left Alabama aboard charter buses suffered yet another setback on their way home when one of the buses broke down.

Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen says a bus got sidelined Friday on the way to New Orleans after leaving Mobile, Ala.

He says another bus was available and those aboard were transferred and continued to New Orleans where they arrived safely later Friday morning.

The ship carrying some 4,200 people and under tow by tugboats docked late Thursday, after an engine-room fire Sunday left it powerless and adrift.
