Rexburg Women Were Stranded on Ill-Fated Cruise Ship



(REXBURG, ID)  — Two college students from Rexburg say they’re relieved to be back from their week-long vacation on the ill-fated Carnival Triumph. Charity Brown and Johnna McClellan made the best of a rough situation by hauling their beds out of their cabins and onto the deck. The cruise ship made headlines last week after an engine room fire crippled its navigation system, leaving passengers stranded in the Gulf of Mexico. Carnival fully reimbursed all passengers and provided major discounts for future cruises.
