MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- The disabled cruise ship Triumph has entered Mobile Bay and is out of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Carnival ship entered the bay about 4 p.m. Central time Thursday.

The ship is still about 30 miles from the cruise terminal in Mobile. It's expected to arrive there late Thursday.

The bay is tricky to navigate because of turns and cross currents.

The cruise ship has been at sea for a week. An engine-room fire Sunday left the ship powerless. More than 4,000 people are on board the Triumph, and passengers face long bus rides or other travel hassles to get home once they arrive in Alabama.
