GALVESTON — A bevy of boats have come to the aid of the Carnival Triumph cruise ship after an engine fire Sunday left it without electricity or propulsion 150 miles off the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula.

Two tug boats are scheduled to connect with the Triumph today to pull the 102,000 ton ship to the nearest port in Progreso, Mexico, according to a news release from the Carnival cruise line. It’s expected to arrive late Wednesday.
