The Carnival Legend reduced its speed because of the problem and did not stop at the Grand Cayman Islands. Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen says Legend arrived about 7 a.m. Sunday in Tampa, and passengers were off the ship by the normal debarkation time of 10:30 a.m.
Carnival stresses in a statement that the Legend's safety systems, steering and services onboard are functioning normally.
Gulliksen says Legend should depart on time Sunday afternoon for its next trip, at a slightly reduced speed and with one itinerary change. He says the ship will stop in Costa Maya, Mexico, instead of Grand Cayman because it is a closer port.
