Not true, mojomom. If we were "geeks" we could have figured tickers out the first time. It's us "ignurnt" (alabama speak) people who can't figure out tickers.

Thank you Tom. I got my cruise tickers added to my signature so now I can watch the countdown!

Hello Tom,

Would it be possible to put a time zone conversion table on the site? I think it would be very helpful. At the least, could someone post one here? It does get confusing with all the time zone differences.

Thanks and Best regards,
Dwayne

Dwayne, this is a time zone site I use frequently. There are links within for searching for a particular city, or for converting time zones between two cities. (I also like the meeting planner function -- use that often for work.)

It appears the ticker is set to GMT -11. So, for cruises leaving from the U.S. east coast, subtract 7 hours from your departure time, those from Texas subtract 6, those from the West Coast subtract 4. In other words, for a cruise departure of 4:30 pm from Miami, enter 9:30 am.

It's possible we may need to adjust further when standard time goes back into effect.

This is most likely an issue based on being reflective of the time zone in which the server that houses cruisetickers.com is located.

Actually, it appears to be on the International Date Line. BTW, isn't this also used, for the most part, as the nautical date line for timekeeping at sea?

(I have too much time on my hands tonight, no pun intended. )

Speaking of "cruise tickers".....
I love this one here.....but...is there a way to add a cruise ticker to my regular emails? I am doing a lot of correspondence with all of my fellow cruise mates and would love to have this same type of cruise ticker on my emails that I send out.
Can any of you advise? I am definitely computer challenged, so be gentle with me.
kathy
