Their corporate office is in Miami, Florida.
Their ship Carnival Triumph was stranded, engine room fire, about 150 miles from the Yucatan, maybe somewhere near the red arrow, about 150 miles from Triumph’s port of call Progreso, Mexico.
Yet, instead of
- towing it back to Progreso and letting the passengers off,
- or to Cozumel, its other Yucatan port of call, and letting the passengers off,
- instead of towing it to port of Miami,
for some reason they decide to tow it another 500 miles north to Mobile, Alabama.
What were they thinking?
