CAPE CORAL, Fla. - After five days on the disabled Carnival cruise Triumph, passengers are finally free. Wink News has been following the slow return of Cape Coral resident Dee Tucker.
Tucker landed at RSW just before 4 pm Friday and fell into the arms of he fiancé, Joe Eckert. "I'm gonna have a hot shower and sleep with the lights on," stated Tucker, "It was horrible."
She says hat began as a fun-filled voyage soon turned into a scary situation.
"About 5 in the morning, they came down the hall screaming, get your life preserver! Get your life preserver!"
Tucker says, after the fire knocked out power and plumbing, privacy went out the window and food was at a premium.
"I'm a bit of a hoarder so I had fruit in my room. They gave us a lot of cold meals, I don't want to see a cantalope for another month," she said.
Now, finally back on dry land, Dee says she needs a vacation from her vacation.
