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 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.
