The propulsion problem is reducing the ship's maximum sailing speed; all safety systems and hotel services are functioning normally. Technicians continue to work on the issue, Carnival said in a statement. Carnival Legend's Azipod system first began experiencing technical difficulties during its March 9 cruise.
Carnival Legend sails seven-night Caribbean cruises roundtrip from Tampa. Passengers on the affected sailing have the option of canceling and receiving a full refund or rescheduling for a future departure date.
