Let’s tell Carnival to look for additional non US Port Options to restart Cruising

Carnival chose to tow the Triumph to Mobile, even though it was further because the Gulf Stream current runs in that direction, and the prevailing winds and seas were also in that direction, so it would take less time to travel the further distance, and also so there would be less chance of breaking the tow, which did happen a couple of times, even with towing with the weather.

Per NPR:

The decision to reroute the Triumph to Alabama was spurred by currents that pushed the 100,000-ton cruise ship "nearly equidistant" to Mobile and Progreso, according to Carnival officials. The cruise line had earlier said the ship would arrive in Mexico late Wednesday; instead, it's on a 270-mile journey across the gulf that will end late Thursday.

The change in destination is expected to simplify the return process for passengers, 900 of whom were not traveling with passports.

 

 

We were both correct. Multiple reasons.
