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 (http://bit.ly/15Qdu3a ) 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.

MIAMI (AP) - Carnival Cruise Lines is making arrangements for passengers aboard the stranded ship Dream to fly home.
    
The cruise line made the announcement Thursday morning.
    
The ship encountered a technical issue with its backup emergency diesel generator during a scheduled port of call Wednesday in St. Maarten. There were brief interruptions to the elevators and toilets Wednesday night.
    
The company says engineers are working on the problem, but they are making arrangements to fly passengers home. They did not indicate when the flights would leave St. Maarten. The ship, with a capacity of 3,646 passengers, is docked at Phillipsburg.
    
The Dream's March 16 voyage from Port Canaveral has been canceled.
    
An engine fire crippled the Carnival Triumph in February, leaving 4,200 stranded for five days without working toilets or power.
