GALVESTON — The end is in sight for passengers and crew aboard the disabled Carnival Triumph, as tug boats have arrived to pull the drifting vessel north to a port at Mobile, Ala., instead of to Mexico as originally planned.

More than 4,000 people have been coping with the ugly reality of limited electricity and inadequate utilities since an engine fire left the ship dead in the water last Sunday. Food services are limited, most toilets and showers are out of service, and there is no air conditioning aboard the 102,000 ton ship.
