MIAMI (AP) - 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.

U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman Sabrina Laberdesque said Thursday that Carnival Dream's captain notified the agency of possible trouble with the ship's propulsion system.

In a status update on its Facebook page, Carnival noted there were brief interruptions to elevators and toilets Wednesday night. The ship has full power but engineers are working on a "technical issue."

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

Laberdesque says the Coast Guard isn't involved because the ship is moored.

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