Mobile, AL (KPLC) -
The unimaginable ordeal at sea aboard Carnival's Triumph is over.
Thousands of people waited in Mobile to welcome their weary family members off the ship, including some from Southwest Louisiana.
"I'm just ready to get this thing over with and get back to our day to day lives" said Lake Charles resident, Chris Foxall.
His wife Megan, who works at Washington Marion High School, was on board with her mom. He said Megan did the best she could.
Megan, while aboard the Triumph, shared a text message with KPLC:
"Getting frustrating being so close and still little progress. :-( "
Jon Haire is a Lake Charles pastor. His wife and daughter were on board.
"It's been a long tree days and we prayed that they'll be okay. We'll be together shortly" he said.
Shortly, seemed to get longer and longer with every update on Thursday.
"(Carnival) said I didn't need to come ... But my family will see me when they walk off that ship," Haire said.
Another local group from Jennings awaited cruise ship passengers from Southwest Louisiana.
Carnival arranged stays at local hotels for passengers and family members.
Carnival previously announced that passengers on board will receive $500 cash, a full refund of the voyage and credit to be applied on future Carnival cruises, but a lot of those KPLC spoke to said no amount of money or credit would make up for the "hellish" week that their families have gone through.
