The Carnival Triumph went back into service in June, but Local 2 learned the cruise ship failed a coast guard inspection just before it left Galveston.
A coast guard commandant testified that the ship was actually detained in Galveston by the agency before it's scheduled June 13th departure.
Inspectors found three serious deficiencies related to fire detection and life boat drills. This inspection took place after the ship underwent $115 million in repairs following the on board fire that stranded the Triumph At Sea.
Carnival said the violations were fixed, meeting coat guard's approval, before the ship set sail on time.
However, congressional leaders hammered Carnival's CEO, criticizing him for shooting a video around the time the ship was failing inspection, in which he claimed the ship was fully repaired.
The Carnival Triumph is scheduled for another departure out of Galveston next weekend.
