Two more cruise ship crises

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

On the heels of the Carnival Triumph rescue last month, the cruise line continues to see problems as two cruise ships are cutting vacations short for nearly 7,000 passengers.

The Carnival Dream remains in port in St. Marten while engineers work on the emergency backup generator. Cruise passengers were sent back to Florida where the cruise took off.

Nearly 2,500 people are on board Carnival's Legend, which is experiencing technical problems with its propulsion system. It is cruising at reduced speed in the Caribbean and canceled an upcoming Cayman Islands trip. The ship is expected to dock in Tampa on Sunday. 

Carnival said everything else is functioning properly.
