Cruise ship captain hopes for plea deal.

The captain of the cruise ship that capsized off the coast of Italy is trying to work out a plea deal as testimony is about to begin in his trial in Grosseto, Italy.

But Francesco Schettino's  ttorney says he holds out little hope that the trial judge will allow a deal for Schettino to plead guilty in exchange for a three-year-five-month sentence. 

Schettino risks up to 20 years if found guilty of manslaughter, abandoning ship and causing the shipwreck that claimed 32 lives.

The 2,200 passengers aboard the Royal Caribbean's Grandeur of the Seas are expected to arrive in Baltimore today, after their planned seven-night cruise was cut short because of a ship fire. 

This young passenger says the entire experience was horrifying.

I thought, "We are gonna die." I thought we had to get on the lifeboats and go.

The fire began early Monday and was put out two hours later with no injuries reported. Royal Caribbean says the ship never lost power but photos show a substantial area of the stern burned on several decks of the ship the length of about three football fields.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Another Carnival cruise ship is having problems. The Carnival Legend has canceled a stop in Grand Cayman and is headed back to the Port of Tampa after the company says a "technical issue" began affecting the ship's sailing speed.

Passengers on the Carnival Dream are being flown home because of problems with an on-board generator while docked in St. Maarten. And last month the Carnival Triumph spent five days in the in the Gulf of Mexico without power or working toilets.

HOUSTON (AP) - After days stranded in the Gulf of Mexico in conditions some have described as dismal, most passengers aboard the disabled Carnival Triumph can look forward to a two-hour bus ride after they reach land.

The company announced its plan late Wednesday as the Triumph was being towed to a port in Mobile, Ala., with more than 4,000 people on board, some of whom have complained to relatives of uncomfortable and unsanitary conditions. The company has disputed the accounts.

The Triumph is expected to arrive this afternoon, but passengers' stay will be short. Carnival says passengers can board buses to Galveston, Texas, or Houston, or spend the night in New Orleans. Those staying in New Orleans will be flown Friday to Houston. Carnival said it will cover the transportation costs.
