Santander is a Basque town on the north shore -- was there last October. Not sure why they would dock there. So repairs to the ship is a good reason.

I'm not sure exactly, but there could be a variety of reasons: waiting period for cargo to load, refueling of the vessel, repairing vehicles, who knows...I won't worry too much if I were you, BMW doesn't have any factories/facilities in Madrid do they? Although this is easier said than done..relax..I'm sure your car is fine.

I see similar ships pass through the Canal, since my school is very very near from the Miraflores Locks.

New ships typically have problems that need to be corrected on early voyages and that could be the reason for the delay to make repairs.
