The Carnival cruise ship Triumph that spent five days adrift after an engine fire is still refusing to behave. This time it's broken free from its moorings at the Alabama shipyard where it's undergoing repairs and hit a cargo vessel. Strong gusts of wind are being blamed but some who witnessed the incident have other ideas. (SOUNDBITE)(English) BRANDON VICKERS, WITNESS, SAYING : "Yes sir, it could have been a lot worse. I don't know if the boat's just cursed or what. I don't think I'm going on it." The ship's still undergoing repairs after February's drama in the Gulf of Mexico. It had more than 4, 000 passengers on board, many of whom complained of overflowing toilets and stinking conditions.
