TAMPA, Fla. — Carnival Cruise Lines says another of its ships has experienced problems and is heading back to the Port of Tampa.

Late Thursday, the company said “a technical issue” affecting the sailing speed of the Legend forced the cancellation of a stop at Grand Cayman Islands.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the ship is expected to arrive in Tampa as scheduled Sunday following a seven-day cruise. Passengers will get a $100 credit, refunds on pre-purchased shore excursions in Grand Cayman and half off on a future cruise.

The Carnival Dream experienced problems with an on-board generator while docked in St. Maarten and the company announced Thursday that passengers would be flown home.

A month ago, passengers on the Carnival Triumph spent five days in the Gulf of Mexico without power or working toilets.
