Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas was delayed in docking at Seattle by seven hours due to high winds. The ship had to wait for tugboats to assist with its approach as strong winds in Puget Sound, gusting up to 40 knots, made docking challenging. The delay was caused by the need for additional tugboats which were not initially available. Despite the delay, the ship eventually docked safely with extra tugboat assistance. The impact of wind on cruise ships during docking was highlighted, emphasizing the importance of managing crosswinds below 30 knots to avoid potential damage. The delayed arrival affected the ship's departure time for its scheduled seven-night Southeast Alaska cruises from Seattle throughout the summer.
