(CNN) - First it was Triumph, then Elation, followed by Dream and now Legend.

Those are happy, uplifting names for Carnival cruise ships, but recently some passengers have experienced the exact opposite.

The problems onboard the Carnival Legend are affecting its sailing speed.

It happened on the last leg of a seven day Caribbean cruise that left Tampa on Sunday

Another ship, the Carnival Dream, lost power and developed problems with toilets on Wednesday.

No one was allowed to get off the vessel when it docked at Philipsburg, St. Maarten, in the eastern Caribbean.

Carnival said it is flying the more than 4,000 passengers back to Florida and will give them discounts.

Also the ship Elation had to be escorted by a tugboat last weekend because of a malfunction in its steering system.
