Regarding "making up time at sea" we had a weather delay sailing out of St. Thomas, the last port of call, and arrived very late to San Juan. The crew told us that since the cost of fuel jumped a couple years ago they simply can't afford to travel at the higher rates of speed (of which the ships are capable of) unless there is a marine emergency, such as a hurricane they are going around. That might influence the "cut off number" that they will wait for as well.
