It is always ship's time, but that can sometimes be local time too. Most of the time ships doing Caribbean cruises will remain on the same time as their embarkation port (Miami for example), but on occasion the ship will change to the local time for the ports. They will inform you of any time changes in the Carnival Capers, so it is important to carefully read it each day.

It is really the choice of the Captain as to whether the ship changes time as it goes through time zones.
