Carnival cruise ship being towed to shore

Passengers from the disabled Carnival Lines cruise ship Triumph board charter planes to return home, at Louis Armstrong International Airport in Kenner, La., Friday, Feb. 15, 2013.  Passengers finally were on the move Friday: some checked into hotels while others hopped on buses or jumped on charter flights home after five numbing days at sea on a cruise liner paralyzed by an engine-room fire.   <span class=meta>(AP Photo/ Gerald Herbert)</span>
