Any speculation why they are offering 7-day eastbound transatlantic crossings now? Fuel consumption in adding a day by slowing the ship? Or to allow for more time adjustment to the passengers?

>>Fuel consumption in adding a day by slowing the ship?<<

If anything, they would be cutting fuel consumption this way. A lot of shipping lines have gone to steaming at reduced speeds of late for just that reason. Oil getting rediculously expensive was what kicked it off. While i's a lot cheaper now, that won't last.
