Carnival Cruise Line was forced to cancel another Carnival Liberty sailing due to on an ongoing issue with faulty generator affecting ship's propulsion.

Carnival informed its clients on Friday that today's 5-night Western Caribbean voyage out of Galveston had been canceled. It is the 2nd cruise canceled in a week - Carnival was also forced to cancel Liberty's 5-night Mexico sailing slated to depart October 31.

All passengers receive a full refund as well as any pre-purchased Fun Shop items, excursions, and gratuities. Carnival Cruise Line is also applying a 100% credit in the amount that has been paid for the canceled sailing on a future cruise purchase.

A statement from the cruise line sent to passengers read:

"Our technical team, along with outside technical experts, has been working round the clock to fix an issue with one of the ship's diesel generators, which is only affecting the vessel's maximum cruising speed."

"We had hoped to have the issue fixed in time for your sailing tomorrow. Despite our team's best efforts, the work is taking longer than expected. Unfortunately it is now evident we have to cancel tomorrow's cruise."

The next Carnival Liberty cruise is a 4-night November 10 voyage, which has already been affected, visiting Progreso instead of Cozumel. Guests booked on this sailing are free to cancel for a full refund or sail with a 25% future cruise discount and US$50 per-person onboard credit.

Carnival Liberty is scheduled for a 2-week dry dock December 1.
