(10:37 a.m. EDT) -- Carnival Cruise Lines canceled two additional five-day sailings of Carnival Triumph to make repairs caused when the ship was torn away from a shipyard in Mobile earlier this month. The ship will return to service June 13 rather than June 3.

Cruise Critic learned of the cancellations from Cruise Critic member txcruiser90, who had been trying to book the June 3 sailing.

Carnival confirmed the cancellations, explaining the ship was damaged when it broke away from the pier, delaying the overall repair schedule by 10 days. Attempts to return the ship to the shipyard failed and repairs are being done at the Mobile cruise terminal. Final repairs will be completed in The Bahamas.

Passengers on the latest canceled sailings will receive full refunds, reimbursement for travel expenses and future cruise discounts of 25 percent.
