Remember Carnival Triumph, the first and more serious of the two Carnival poop cruises? Well, it looks like the ship is still giving Carnival problems because it broke away from the docks on Wednesday and floated across the river.

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) Mobile Fire-Rescue has confirmed that the Carnival Triumph has broken loose and crew members may be in the water.

So, that's probably not how they drew it up, right? Tow boats are reportedly working to bring the ship back to BAE Ship Systems where it was being worked on. WTSP in Tampa is reporting that there's a hole in the ship's stern. Apparently it was strong gusts of wind that blew Triumph away from the dock. [WPMI]
