Cruise giant Carnival is suing the Alabama shipyard that took in the Carnival Triumph earlier this year after it lost power at sea, Mobile’s Press-Register reports. The Press-Register says Carnival is blaming Mobile’s BAE Systems shipyard and several related entities for what it says is more than $12 million worth of damage that occurred to the vessel during a storm that swept across the facility. The Carnival Triumph broke free from its moorings at the shipyard during the April 3 storm, which was accompanied by wind gusts approaching 70 miles per hour.
