According to various news sources, the Carnival Legend is experiencing problems with her propulsion system. The Legend is currently sailing at a lower speed and will not be able to keep her originally planned itinerary. Reports from Carnival confirm that power and emergency equipment is functioning normally.
The Carnival Triumph will now spend two days at sea instead of calling in Grand Cayman tomorrow. The ship was originally scheduled to sail a day at sea on Saturday and return to her homeport, Tampa, on Sunday. By skipping Grand Cayman, the ship will be able to dock in Tampa on Sunday as scheduled, and will have minimal impact on guest’s post cruise travel.
Guests on the currently sailing on the Legend will receive a $100 per person onboard credit as well as a full refund on any pre-purchased shore excursions for Grand Cayman. Guests will also receive a 50% discount off a future Carnival cruise.
