Carnival Cruise Lines says the Carnival Triumph will be out of service longer than first expected after it was crippled by an engine fire in the Gulf of Mexico last month, leaving 4,200 people stranded for five days.

The company said Tuesday that the ship will return to service June 13, meaning 10 more cruises will be canceled. Those guests will receive full refunds, reimbursement for non-refundable transportation costs and a 25 percent discount on a future four- to five-day cruise.

Also, the Carnival Sunshine, which is undergoing a scheduled full-ship makeover, will return to service May 5, following the cancellation of two European cruises.

The cruise line says it is improving hotel services that can run on emergency power, along with each ship's fire prevention systems.
