The wait is over!

A Galt woman is finally back in California after disembarking from the ill-fated Carnival cruise ship ‘Triumph.’

Julie Pringle was gleefully tackled by her 9-year-old son Ricky as soon as she was off the escalator at Oakland International Airport.

Pringle, her mom and two friends were taking her sister on a surprise 40th birthday cruise.

Their ship?

The ‘Triumph’ that initially sailed strong, but eventually limped into an Alabama dock, suffered an engine room fire that cut propulsion and power  on board.

Julie’s husband, Chuck, says now that his bride is home he intends to give her the vacation she didn’t get.
