CARNIVAL LEGEND STATEMENT March 15, 2013
Carnival Legend is experiencing a technical issue with one of the ships Azipod units that is affecting the vessels sailing speed. The ship's safety systems and hotel services are all functioning normally.
The vessel made its scheduled call yesterday in Mahogany Bay, Roatan, in addition to visiting Cozumel and Costa Maya earlier in the week. Because of the reduction in sailing speed, todays 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.
Guests on the current voyage will receive a $100.00 USD per person credit and a full refund on pre-purchased shore excursions for Grand Cayman. In addition, guests will receive 50 percent off a future Carnival cruise.
Carnival Legend is currently on the last leg of a seven-day Caribbean cruise that departed Tampa on Sunday, March 10.
I think a cruise is a great vacation but you wouldn’t get me on a Carnival ship to save my life.
As a 20 year, 1 month, 18 day US Navy Vet, I say that ANYONE who gets underway ON PURPOSE DESERVES what they get.
So the press gang made you stay for 20 years, one month and 18 days?
Yeah, it’s only the propulsion and maneuvering system. Nothing to worry about. And you get a shiny new penny! See? See how shiny it is?
Now leave your money and go away ...
I told Mrs. JimRed I would gladly take her on a cruise- if they let me DRIVE!
OK so skipping the Caymans means another day at sea. Another day at sea means people have nowhere to spend their money except onboard ship. People spend their money on the ship then it boosts Carnival’s bottom line. So maybe the engine problem was...fortuitous.
The media smells blood and will be in frenzy mode every time a toilet on a carnival ship backsup. Having said that, Dadgum, 2 different ships in 2 days? What the heck is going on.
Somebody has it out for Carnival, there is a word for that kind of odd in English, it’s called “suspicious.”
4 ships in the past month or so.
Triumph-Engine fire. Stuck at sea and towed into port.
Elation-Mechanical failure last week in the Mississippi had to be towed into port.
Dream-mechanical failure. stuck in port.
Triumph-Mechanical failure. Skipping ports of call.
The Triumph fire was apparently caused because Carnival was stinting on maintenance. Wouldn’t surprise me if the other problems were caused by the same thing.
wifey sailed once on a carnival ship.. I never have.. RCCL and Princess mostly.. never got torpedoed, ran out of food or caught fire.. Can I request a refund for all the excitement we missed out on calamity-wise?
We did sail around a hurricane that walloped acapulco some years back.. all we got was wet and fed and a replacement stop in costa rica instead, damn, that place is hot and sticky sometimes.
Carnival is snakebit and then some..
These folks need a refund! You can at least take care of your ships! Next time go Royal Caribbean!
i would guess maintenance is lacking as well as crew training. this keeps ships in dock and not making money.
