You Gotta Be Kidding!

There are technical problems aboard yet another Carnival Cruise ship! The Tampa-based Carnival Legend is having trouble with its propulsion system and will have to skip today's stop in Grand Cayman. The ship is expected to arrive on schedule Sunday morning in Florida but plans for Sunday afternoon's sailing are still unclear. Passengers are being given partial credits and discounts on future cruises. The Legend's sister ship, the Carnival Dream, is stuck in St. Maarten with an electrical problem. The cruise line is flying most of those passengers back to Orlando. Carnival said passengers on the sailing "will receive a refund equivalent to three days of the voyage and 50% off a future cruise." Those on the March 16 cruise, which will probably be cancelled, get a full refund and 25% off a future seven-day cruise. Non-refundable transportation will be reimbursed.
