Evidently the cruise line blamed the "prevailing winds" for the mishap.

Re: Docking Mishap

She lost her engines and was being brought in by 2 tugs. One account said she left for the trip with one engine out of service. Just shows why you don't taunt the ocean.

I learned to drive so I didn't have to take the bus, same with sailing.
