HOUSTON • Carnival Cruise Lines says it is cancelling another 12 voyages for the disabled ship that is being towed to Alabama after an engine room fire left it powerless at sea.

The cruises aboard the Triumph were to take place from Feb. 21 through April 13. Those cancellations are in addition to two other cruises that were called off shortly after Sunday's fire.

The company says passengers will be fully refunded and get discounts on future cruises.

There are more than 4,000 people aboard the ship, which is expected to be towed into Mobile on Thursday.

The Triumph has had other mechanical problems recently that delayed a voyage in late January.

Passengers aboard the disabled vessel have reported dismal conditions. Carnival has disputed those claims.
