TAMPA, Fla. - A Carnival cruise ship that experienced technical issues with its propulsion system and cancelled one stop has arrived as scheduled in Tampa, Fla.
The Carnival Legend reduced its speed because of the problem and did not stop at the Grand Cayman Islands. Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen says Legend arrived about 7 a.m. Sunday in Tampa, and passengers were off the ship by the normal debarkation time of 10:30 a.m.
Carnival stresses in a statement that the Legend's safety systems, steering and services onboard are functioning normally.
Gulliksen says Legend should depart on time Sunday afternoon for its next trip, at a slightly reduced speed and with one itinerary change. He says the ship will stop in Costa Maya, Mexico, instead of Grand Cayman because it is a closer port.
