If your ship leaves Miami during Eastern Standard Time. Does it remain on EST for the entire cruise. So for example right now the ship would be two hours ahead if in cosumel?

Just want to make sure..
Thanks Daddy

Daddy, the ship will adjust it's time to whatever time zone you are in at the time and re-adjust itself on the way back to port. The ship will notify passengers when the time shift does happen and the ship's clocks also change. It's seamless and I never notice the effect. So, to answer your question, no, the ship will not remain on EST.

Not always! We have been on many cruises out of Miami that stayed on eastern time for the whole cruise, even going on a western Caribbean. The ship will clearly inform passengers to remain on ship's time even though local time is different.

That's interesting. Pride changed the time according to Mexico's time and the ship's clocks also changed. Thanks for the info. Learn something new every day.

Like many things, it can be the personal preference of the Captain. It also can vary depending on the time of year.

When we were on the Pride out of Port Canaveral in 2002 the clocks didn't change.

Dave, could West Coast time have anything to do with it? They even went as far as to make announcements over the P.A. system telling us when to change our watches, etc. Thanks.

We were just on the Victory and were told numerous times through the PA and staff - to always stay on ships time.

I think it is like Dave said.. Its the preference of the captain. I have been on Carnival ships that ship time is the time zone you boarded in and I have been on ships that change time. It may have to do with how many zones you cross. Maybe for one time zone they don't bother, but for more than one, it can be a problem with the port staff and they change it?

It is the Captain's decision.

I just got off the Inspiration and the "Ship time" was on its port time in Tampa, FL. It did not change time in Grand Cayman or Calica, Mexico.

So far I have not been on a ship that changed their time.
