Yesterday news of human waste covering the floors of the Dream, and on Saturday, steering issues forced the Elation to call for a tugboat. Today, according to CNN, the Legend is having sailing-speed problems related to the Azipod propulsion system. As a result it had to skip a visit to Grand Cayman and head back to Florida.
The Azipod was also the system troubling the Elation, CNN notes. The Legend is still set to arrive on time, and its “safety systems and hotel services are all functioning normally,” Carnival says. Still, passengers are very unhappy, one tells CNN via email. “Many have already said they will not book again with Carnival.” It’s not clear how many people are on the Legend, but it can hold some 2,100 souls, NBC News notes. They’re due to get a $100 refund. Meanwhile, flights begin today for passengers stuck on the Dream.
