Question of mary-kate (03.07.2016): What is a stop/layover?
A: A stopover is a temporary breakpoint on a maritime route. It is the action of a vessel to stop to refuel, embark, and disembark passengers and cargo (Cargo means all goods transported by sea, air, and road), but also to escape sometimes bad weather. This means in particular relaxing in a clean anchorage (Labourer carried by a ship to drop anchor in the water) of the ship.

The word can also mean a stopover duration, "a brief stopover."
This word was borrowed from the Italian “scala”, meaning a scale facilitating the landing.
