More Problems for Carnival Cruise Lines

 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - For the second time this week, Carnival Cruise Lines says one of its ships has experienced problems during a cruise.
 
     Late Thursday, the company said "a technical issue" affecting the sailing speed of the Carnival Legend forced the cancellation of a stop at Grand Cayman Islands.
 
     The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/15Qdu3a ) 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.
 
     Another Carnival ship, the 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.
