Carnival ship forced to miss stop after 'technical incident'

Carnival Cruise Lines has been hit by a second incident this week after Carnival Legend suffered a “technical incident”, forcing a stop at Grand Cayman to be cancelled.

A problem affecting the ship’s sailing speed occurred on Thursday night, and comes just hours after passengers on Carnival Dream had the remainder of their sailing cancelled following a malfunction of the ship's emergency back-up generator.

The cruise line said Carnival Legend's safety systems and hotel services are all functioning normally, and the ship made its scheduled call yesterday in Mahogany Bay, Roatan, in addition to visiting Cozumel and Costa Maya earlier in the week.

The ship will miss out today’s Grand Cayman visit and will continue on to its homeport of Tampa, Florida, where it is expected to arrive on Sunday as scheduled following a seven-day Caribbean cruise.

Each guest on the current voyage will receive a $100 credit and a full refund on pre-purchased shore excursions for Grand Cayman. In addition, guests will receive 50% off a future Carnival cruise.

Last month, passengers on Carnival Triumph faced unhygienic conditions after being stranded for five days in the Gulf of Mexico without power or working toilets.
