Carnival faces new fiasco a year after Concordia

A year after the tragic Costa Concordia shipwreck, cruise industry leader Carnival faces a new public relations fiasco that reveals the downsides of the sector's recent high-speed growth. Late Thursday, the company's crippled Triumph limped ashore in Alabama after an engine room fire on Sunday left the ship without the power needed to operate air conditioners, prepare meals or flush toilets. It ended a miserable ordeal for some 4,000 people that had triggered days of news reports around the world about the disastrous hygiene conditions on board.
