WILD ROSE (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin woman was one of the thousands of passengers aboard the Carnival cruise that got stranded in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.
Tammi Buser's sister, Beth Cutts from Wild Rose, was sailing with a friend to celebrate their 40th birthdays.
Buser says it was her sister's first cruise, one she was really looking forward to taking.
She says her brother-in-law received an automated message from Carnival describing the incident that left the ship without power.
"I think she'll be okay. She's strong. She'll be fine. I hear reports on TV that the conditions aren't that good but I think she'll be fine," says Buser.
She says she had been tracking the ship's progress online and on the news which makes her anxious to hear her sister's stories.
The Triumph finally made it to port in Mobile, AL Thursday night.
