Second Carnival Cruise Ship Affected by Propulsion Problem
(1:45 pm. EST) -- Less than a week after Carnival Destiny was forced to alter its itinerary due to thruster difficulties, Carnival Triumph's schedule has also been changed because of propulsion problems.

"Carnival Triumph is experiencing a problem with its propulsion system that is affecting its cruising speed," Vance Gulliksen, a Carnival Cruise Lines spokesman, told Cruise Critic. "All other safety systems and hotel services are functioning normally."

As a result of the ship's slower speed, its arrival into Galveston has been delayed, which in turn is delaying today's departure; embarkation is now set to begin at 2:30 p.m. Additionally, the ship's five-day itinerary will be affected. Depending on the progress of the repairs (which are currently ongoing) Carnival Triumph will either overnight in Progreso or Cozumel.

Passengers sailing on today's modified cruise will receive a $50 per person onboard credit or they may cancel and receive a full refund.
