Sandeep Berry, one of the stranded passengers on the Carnival cruise

After traveling overnight, Sandeep Berry of Evanston arrived at O’Hare International Airport Friday morning where she reunited with her husband following a vacation nightmare.

On Sunday, a fire in the engine room knocked out power to most of the ship in the Gulf of Mexico. It took tugboats nearly 5 days to pull the Triumph to Mobile, ALABAMA. Berry described deplorable conditions. She said passengers had to trudge through raw sewage and stand in line for hours to get food.

“For the crew that was on the ship, they did an amazing job but higher up management had no plan in place,” said Berry.

On Friday, a Texas woman filed the first lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines calling the Triumph a “floating toilet.”
