Thousands of passengers stranded on a crippled cruise ship for five days finally docked in Mobile, Alabama on Thursday evening.
 
As the Carnival Triumph slowly made its way into port the cheers of glee, whistles and excitement of all aboard could be heard. 
 
What began as a four-day voyage in the Gulf of Mexico last Thursday actually turned into a holiday nightmare. Those who were on board have recounted stories of overflowing toilets and scarcity of food. Some have also become unwell.
 
Passengers of the Carnival Triumph took to Instagram to share their experience with the social media world. Check out the following images:

Until moving, the boat had a severe list to one side. I personally had a panic attack on Sunday evening. There was a lot they waited a long time to share with the passengers so we had no idea what to expect. #carnivalcruise #carnivaltriumph
