I’ll make a wild-eyed guess that they planned their voyage VERY carefully. I’ll make another wild-eyed guess that it doesn’t fit through the Panama Canal ...

I worked with the predecessor of that company 20 years ago. As I remember, their in-house weather team kept up on things very well back then. I would suspect they have real time forecasts for all voyages.
Then there was the time in my own ship driving days when I realized that the only weather forecasts my ship was getting were a repeat of what we had just passed to the Fleet Weather Center. That'll make you feel kinda lonely....
