(CNN) — Carnival Cruise Lines announced Tuesday afternoon that an additional 10 cruises have been canceled for the Carnival Triumph while repairs are made to the fire-damaged ship.

The Carnival Triumph, which was stranded in the Gulf of Mexico for several unpleasant days in February, is now slated to return to service on June 3, Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said.

Customers who had booked the canceled cruises will receive a full refund, reimbursement for non-refundable transportation costs and a 25 percent discount on a future four- to five-day cruise, the company said.

Carnival has been plagued by mechanical problems on it ships lately. After passengers on the Triumph were subjected to days of overflowing toilets, unrelenting heat and food shortages, significant troubles arose on the ships Elation, Dream and Legend.

The company announced last week it would conduct “a comprehensive review” of its entire 23-ship fleet.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage.
