Carnival Dream reports problems in St. Maarten

MIAMI - A month after a Carnival cruise ship was stranded for five days in the Gulf of Mexico, another of its cruise ships is reporting equipment problems in the Caribbean.

A U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman in Miami says Carnival Dream's captain notified the agency of possible trouble with the ship's propulsion system.

The cruise ship, which has a capacity of 3,646 passengers and 1,367 crew members, is docked at Phillipsburg in St. Maarten.

Carnival officials didn't immediately return a phone call or email seeking comment.

The Coast Guard says the ship has sewage and power and officials are working to correct the problems. It says it's not involved because the ship is moored.

An engine fire crippled the Carnival Triumph in February, leaving 4,200 without working toilets or power.
