MOBILE -- A follow-up now on Carnival's troubled ship the "Triumph".
Carnival is now asking a court to dismiss lawsuits that were filed by passengers who were stuck on the ship for days dealing with difficult conditions..
Carnival says its cruise tickets clearly state passengers can *not file class action suits.
Passengers' lawyers argue Carnival was negligent in letting the Triumph sail with its history of mechanical problems.
The Triumph was disabled by an engine fire on February 10th and was stranded in the gulf for days.
The ship was ultimately towed to Mobile.
It is still in the port being repaired.
