This morning, the cruise ship was reported under tow again, headed for BAE Ship Repair, Mobile.

The cruise line said that deck and engine room crew would stay on board the ship to reposition it, but would be moved to hotel rooms tonight and would then stay with the ship to assist with the repairs.

Hotel crew had the option of staying on board the ship last night or moving to a hotel room. Hotel crew who were nearing the end of their contracts would be paid up to the end of those contracts "as they begin their vacation early." Those who had recently signed on would be transfered to other ships.
