You may not believe this, but ANOTHER Carnival cruise ship is having issues.

The fourth in a month!

This time, it's the Carnival Legend. Technical problems are affecting its sailing speed in the Caribbean. So Carnival says it's skipping its Grand Cayman stop and heading slowly back to Tampa. 

It's only been a month since the Triumph spent 8 days without power, trapping thousands on board. 

On Saturday, the Elation needed a tugboat to get into port due to steering problems. Then on Wednesday, the Dream got stuck in St. Maarten.

Carnival says it's offering refunds and discounts to passengers on both the Legend and the Dream. People on the Dream are being flown home starting this morning. The company said it only makes sense and that it's arranging charter and commercial flights to Orlando or their final destinations.

Carnival also downplayed reports of overflowing toilets on the Dream.
