The reason given by the Greek captain was strong winds that would prevent the boat from entering. The decision was apparently made after consultation with the pilot, who came on board for a short time and then went back to the pilot boat. The Vasco da Gama was supposed to leave the port of Visby at 20.00pm after a seven-hour layover. The cruise director justified the failure with "force majeure". Guests who have booked excursions will be credited with the costs. The next stop is Gothenburg. No alternative ports have been named so far.
