Carnival returns to profit; travelers fear mishaps - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - In this Jan. 5, 2010 file photo provided by Carnival Cruise Lines, the Carnival Dream is docked in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Carnival, the world's largest cruise line, has suffered through a number of high-profile mishaps, including on Thursday, March 14, 2013, when the company ended the voyage of the Carnival Dream after the ship's backup emergency diesel generator failed, causing problems with elevators and toilets. Yet passengers continue to book vacations thanks to discounts, albeit at a slower pace. Carnival Corp. said Friday, March 15, 2013, that it earned $37 million, or 5 cents per share, in first quarter ended Feb. 28. That compares with a loss of $139 million, or 18 cents per share, a year earlier. But its forecast for the year came in below analyst's predictions. Its shares fell more than 2 percent.
