High winds force cruise ship to cancel Santa Barbara stop. The cruise ship Viking Orion briefly stopped off Santa Barbara but could not let passengers come ashore due to high winds
It arrived at noon under conditions with erratic winds and choppy seas.
Passengers on a Santa Barbara stop have to come ashore in small boats known as tenders, and conditions were not safe for that process.
All shore tours were canceled.
Many bus and trolley companies had planned to take visitors to the historic sites and wine country for the day.
