WFTX - Another Carnival Cruise ship is slowly making its way back to port this morning.
This is the fourth ship in just a month to have problems.
This time the Carnival Legend is having technical difficulties that are affecting its sailing speed. Today's visit to Grand Cayman has been cancelled and the ship will proceed to its homeport of Tampa, where it is expected to arrive on Sunday as scheduled.
The Carnival Dream suffered a generator failure while docked in Saint Maarten Wednesday, cutting off power for some time. It is back on at this point, but the ship has not left port yet.
Carnival Elation had to be escorted by a tugboat Saturday because of a malfunction in its steering system, the cruise company said.
And these problems coming after an engine room fire left the Carnival Triumph crippled and adrift in the Gulf of Mexico with more than 4,200 people aboard last month.
