Not sure for the non WWL lines but it looks like it is a direct flight to panama for the west coast boats. From what I remember of tidal currents in the Atlantic there are two primary routes. North towards Newfoundland and then a route that shoots down off of Portugal then there is a good east west current that takes you down towards South America. Can't remember the name of it. But most boat routes take advantage of these currents as it saves fuel and increases your cruising speed.

November 5 at the canal. It looks like they saved time at Southampton and made up a couple days as new california arrivals date is the 13th.
