Skift Take

The next stop for the Carnival Triumph is Freeport, The Bahamas, where it will go into drydock for hopefully the final fixes before the ship returns to commercial service.

The latest mishap on the Carnival Triumph has resulted in the cancellation of two more sailings.

Carnival says voyages scheduled for June 3 and June 8 have been eliminated so the 2,758-passenger vessel can spend 10 more days undergoing repairs.

The beleaguered cruise ship suffered a 20-foot-long gash on April 3 when it broke free from its moorings at a shipyard in Mobile, Ala. during a fierce storm. The damage occurred as the vessel was undergoing repairs following a much-publicized fire in February.
