The ship was crippled February 10 when a fire in the engine room caused enough damage to set it adrift in the Gulf of Mexico. Power and running water were among the services affected by the fire. Passengers have reportedly faced long lines and even fights for food.
Basic comfort and hygiene became an issue when waste systems and air conditioning stopped working for many.
Here's what Carnival has lined up once people finally disembark: About 100 buses are waiting to take them to New Orleans, Louisiana, for the night, or straight back to their original port near Houston, Texas. Carnival has booked 1,500 hotel rooms in New Orleans. Passengers will also get $500 on top of a full refund and other credits.
