Propulsion problems force Carnival Glory to skip calls

MIAMI -- Propulsion problems on the Carnival Glory have slowed the ship on its current seven-day cruise.

The technical problem with the Glorys starboard propulsion system is causing the vessel to operate at reduced speeds.

Repair work, which started during a call in Nassau, Bahamas, will not be completed in time to maintain the Glorys original itinerary, and Carnival replaced calls in St. Thomas and St. Maarten with calls in Freeport, Bahamas, and Key West, Fla.

Passengers received a $100 per person shipboard credit or were given the opportunity to fly home from Nassau and receive a refund on the unused portion of the cruise. Carnival said a couple dozen people took that option.
