MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The first of some 3,000 passengers are starting to come off a cruise ship disabled for days at sea.
At about 10:15 p.m. Central time some aboard the Triumph were walking down an enclosed gangway to a terminal at Mobile, Ala.
As people started disembarking, others on board waiting were chanting, "Let me off, let me off!"
Carnival CEO Gerry Cahill apologized on the public address system to passengers.
Passengers have the option of a seven-hour bus ride to the Texas cities of Galveston or Houston or a two-hour trip to New Orleans. Buses are standing by to take them to their next stop.
