I have cruised with RCCL 9 times, and 8 of them they gave you the speach about always keeping "ships time" while in port, which works fine as long as you rely on your own watch. However, on a Feb '06 Radiance cruise to the Western Carib., they changed to local time. All of the prearranged excursion tickets were printed with ships time, and it was a complete madhouse. Even the captain got the time wrong when he gave his morning talk. To top it off, the next day we switched back. When we asked the crew, they blamed the idea on the "new" Cruise Director, and said that they had never seen this done before. Although I have no idea how you would find out if they will change the time on you, I would bet that they don't do it often in the Carib. as it really isnt that critical to move a clock one hour up or back.
