Why does the Ventura call at Ponta Delgarda instead of Madeira when coming back from the Caribbean so often?

The P&O Ventura calls at Ponta Delgarda in the Azores on the way back from the Caribbean because it is convenient port of call, being in the middle of the Atlantic, unlike Madeira which is closer to the mainland. Madeira is also a very popular destination, meaning those seeking different itineraries find a stop at Ponta Delgada appealing. It is also a more direct return route, and is more cost effective for the line.
