It's pretty hard to miss an announcement about the ship's time. Most of my cruises have always stayed on ship's time.

In 2007 on our 15 nt Hawaii cruise on RCCI,the ship's time changed every time we changed time zones. Not sure if this is the norm, but we liked it,it made things easier for us. Also,when in Hawaii,I turned on my cell phone and it updated to Hawaii time and the same thing when we got back to San Diego.

I think I should clarify my earlier post. On most Carnival Miami Caribbean cruises that I've been on the ship stays on Miami time. Dang!, I need to make sure what section I'm posting in.

When they moved the Elation in 2006 to Port Canaveral a week ahead of time before dry dock to do a cruise first, they did change the time for Cozumel. The Captain was used to doing West Coast runs, and apparently had the habit of changing the time for Mexico. As most know Port Canaveral has a large volume of repeat cruisers, and everyone was talking about how this was the first time it ever happened.

This get's better, this time change was also the same night Daylight Savings Time ended. The result was hilarious. No one knew what time it was including the crew. The ship's computers had one time and the public clocks had another. It really depended where you were on the ship.

I've only done three cruises on Mariner when she was at Port Canaveral, and all three times, we stayed on Port Canaveral time throughout the entire cruise. Seems to be the safest method I think for RCCL. I cannot speak at all for any other line tho.

Don't forget that on some cruises, all the islands you visit are actually on Florida time, so no time change would be necessary.

Man, I bet that was hilarious. I remember at work, we forgot to change our main wall clock, even though our computers had the right time. The VP went to go talk to someone, then realized it about a week after daylight savings time started. He was like "Stew, if I don't get... (then notices the clock is an hour behind) we need to fix that clock."
