English term or phrase: 3 weeks, maximum prior to the date of use
advanced reservations is highly recommended. However, reservations for this service shall only be taken 3 weeks, maximum prior to the date of use.

私なりの解釈だと「事前によるご予約をお勧めいたしますが、当サービスのご予約は、ご利用日から3週間以内にご予約ください」となりますが、"3 weeks, maximum prior to the date of use" の部分の訳で、私の解釈だと、maximum の訳が弱い感じがします。どのように強調できるでしょうか。
