A Carnival Cruise Lines spokesperson said that the disabled Triumph ship is expected to arrive in the Mobile, Ala. port between 9:30-10:30 p.m. Thursday night, and buses mobilized from New Orleans are waiting to help transport the passengers from the crippled vessel.

Carnival's Terry Thornton will have food, blankets and cell phones for more than 4,000 passengers disembarking from the ship that lost power to its engines due to a fire earlier this week.

The buses will take some passengers back to New Orleans, where they can board chartered flights to Houston on Friday.
