Not again.Another Carnival cruise ship is experiencing problems in the Caribbean, the AP reported. The Carnival Dream is having problems with its propulsion system, power outages and overflowing toilets while docked in Phillipsburg, St. Maarten, according to Fox News. In a Facebook post on the company’s page, the cruise line cites that there were “periodic interruptions to elevators and toilets for a few hours last night,” and the ship now “has full power but is still at dock while personnel continue to work on the technical issue.”The Carnival Dream is a 1,004-foot ship that has a 3,646-passenger capacity (not including 1,367 onboard crew), according to the company’s website. "There's human waste all over the floor in some of the bathrooms and they're overflowing -- and in the state rooms," passenger Gregg Stark, told WPTV.The incident occured one month after an engine fire on the Carnival Triumph crippled the ship, leaving 4,200 people without running water or power for five days in the Gulf of Mexico, the AP reported. According to reports, food onboard the Triumph was scarce and passengers were sweltering without air conditioning. A tug boat pulled the ship to shore. Since then, a class action lawsuit has been filed against Carnival Corporation, WPTV reported.
