Carnival Cruise Lines ship stuck in the Caribbean

A Carnival Cruise Lines ship is stuck at port in St. Maarten in the Caribbean with equipment trouble, Reuters reports.

The captain of the Carnival Dream reported a problem with the emergency diesel generator, which controls the ship's propulsion, a US Coast Guard spokesman said.

The Coast Guard first learned of a problem aboard the ship from a passenger at about 3 a.m. local time, said Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss in Miami.

It comes a month after another Carnival vessel was disabled in the Gulf of Mexico by a fire, trapping thousands of passengers for nearly five days.
