Another Carnival Ship With Troubles at Sea

Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - A month after a Carnival cruise ship was stranded for five days in the Gulf of Mexico, another of its cruise ships is reporting equipment problems in the Caribbean.

A U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman in Miami said Thursday that Carnival Dream's captain notified the agency of possible trouble with the ship's propulsion system.

The cruise ship, which has a capacity of 3,646 passengers and 1,367 crew members, is docked at Phillipsburg in St. Maarten.

Carnival officials didn't immediately return a phone call or email seeking comment.

Petty Officer Sabrina Laberdesque says the ship has sewage and power and officials are working to correct the problems. She says the Coast Guard is not involved because the ship is moored.

An engine fire crippled the Carnival Triumph in February, leaving 4,200 without working toilets or power.
