Carnival Legend skips call due to propulsion problems

By Jerry Limone
Another Carnival Cruise Lines ship, the Legend, is having technical problems.

The Legend is sailing back to Tampa with reduced power due to a problem with the ship’s propulsion system, Carnival said. The ship’s hotel services are operating normally, the cruise line said.

Carnival skipped a call in Grand Cayman on Friday because of the problem. The Legend is expected to arrive in Tampa on Sunday as scheduled; the ship departed Tampa last Sunday for a seven-day cruise.

The problem with the Legend’s propulsion system comes one day after a Carnival Dream cruise ended in St. Maarten due to a problem with the emergency diesel generator, and a little more than a month after an engine-room fire left the Carnival Triumph stranded in the Gulf of Mexico.
