HOUSTON (AP) - Family members of passengers onboard a disabled cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico say their loved ones are trying to take the hot and dirty conditions in stride.
Jimmy Mowlam told The Associated Press on Tuesday that his son Rob and new daughter-in-law got married onboard the Carnival Triumph on Saturday and are among the roughly 3,100 stranded passengers.
He says his son told him by phone Monday night that many passengers are sleeping on deck because the lack of ventilation made it too hot to sleep inside.
He says his son says passengers were mostly "taking it in stride."
Other passengers have described more dire conditions, including water and feces on the ship's floors.
The ship is being towed to Mobile, Ala., and is expected there Thursday.
