The problems are coming in droves for the biggest cruise company. Carnival Dream’s power outage makes toilets overflow, while Carnival Legend is also facing issues

Carnival Cruises is once again facing big issues. It is merely weeks when one of its huge cruise liners Triumph had stranded near Mexico and now two other of its ships are facing problems, making its fans jittery and travelers becoming annoyed with the biggest cruise company in the word. Meanwhile people have not forgotten as to what happened to its very big Costa Concordia near Italian cost just over a year ago.

Carnival Legend’s technical problems are going to compound company’s woes in managing its affairs. Within a month’s time, it is once again going to be inundated with more legal issues as people who have suffered in the latest episode of its cruise liner going kaput, are certainly going to take legal action against the company.

Reports suggest that a very beautiful cruise liner Carnival Legend is facing technical snags that are reportedly affecting its sailing. Though there is still no true info about how slow the ship has actually become. But apparently the tour on the huge ship was not very long and involved just 7 days cruising. And a good thing about the ship was the fact that it was on its final leg after departing from Tampa on March 10

If that was not enough bad news for the company there is another cruise liner from the same company being stranded. There are reports that Carnival Dream has became a nightmare for some passengers as power went off, toilets stopped working and no one was allowed to get off the vessel. But the good news for the passengers was the fact that the ship was docked at Philipsburg, St. Maarten, in the eastern Caribbean. So it seems that the bad news for Costa Cruise are coming in droves.

The passengers on the ship seem very fortunate as the problem started when the ship was not in high seas but docked in St. Maarten, a beach haven in the Caribbean. Now reports suggest that the company has started to fly passengers back to their homes and reimburse them for the three remaining days of the cruise, which began in Florida on Saturday. A press release issued by the company said, “We can confirm that only one public restroom was taken offline for cleaning based on toilet overflow and there was a total of one request for cleaning of a guest cabin bathroom…Aside from that there have been no reports of issues on board with overflowing toilets or sewage”. Last month it had faced bad publicity when its Costa Triumph power had gone off and toilets overflew and eatables perished, giving some real anxious moments to passengers and management of the company.
