Eden Davis told WXYZ that her sister Gina is from Saline and is on board the Triumph, which left Galveston, Texas last week for a four-day Caribbean tour.
A weekend engine fire had partially disabled the ship off the coast of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.
Gina and other passengers have reported poor conditions on the ship -- including trouble getting enough food to eat and sewage in the hallways, according to media reports.
The cruise ship now is being slowly tugged to Alabama.
The incident happened about a year after 32 people died when the Costa Concordia -- a luxury cruise ship operated by Carnival's Costa Cruises brand -- was grounded on rocks off the Tuscan island of Giglio in Italy, Reuters reported.
