MOBILE, Ala. - The Carnival Triumph is headed back to sea three months after limping into port following a fire at sea.

The almost 900-foot-long cruise ship left the Alabama Cruise Terminal in Mobile under its own power Wednesday after extensive work to repair damage from an engine room fire.

The Miami-based Carnival says the Triumph is headed to Freeport, Bahamas, for more repairs and upgrades.

It's supposed to return to service June 13 with a cruise from Galveston, Texas.

The Triumph was towed into Mobile on Valentine's Day. A Gulf cruise turned into a nightmare for passengers who spent five days in what many described as squalid conditions.

The ship broke loose from its moorings during a storm in April, and a dock worker died after being swept into the water.
