Carnival cruise ship stops to help sailboat stranded off Louisiana coast

A Carnival cruise ship headed back to New Orleans from the Caribbean made a brief stop off the Louisiana coast to help out a stranded sailboat.

Carnival Triumph, which home ports in New Orleans, was sailing Wednesday (Dec. 12) off the coast of Louisiana, about 80 miles from the Southwest Pass, when it received a request from a nearby sailboat that was in need of oil, according to a news release. The ship was returning to New Orleans after a five-day cruise to the western Caribbean.

Triumph responded under the direction of Capt. Isidoro Renda, approaching the sailboat, extending a gangway and boarding the smaller vessel with the needed oil. The sailboat crew had been sailing from Galveston, Texas, to Tampa, Florida, when they ran into trouble, a Carnival spokeswoman said.
