Default cruise times/port times

We're sailing on the Conquest in July out of new orleans. Does the ship's time stay on NO time? Central Daylight Savings time?

Can someone tell me the time differences in Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel?

Did this last year on RCCI but can't remember. Trying to get my excursions lined out but need to get the times sorted out.

The ships time will be set to whatever the local time is. So on the east coast, it will be EST, and when you sail through a time change, the ships clock will also change. Sorry I cant help with the ports youre going to but I believe all but Cozumel are on EST while Cozumel is CST???? Hopefully someone will reply, but you can also do a search too. Your daily newsletter on board will also remind you the night before to adjust your clocks.

Actually, I was looking thru some old Capers from our last cruise and in big letters it says on each port day PLEASE STAY ON SHIP TIME.

I think you should check with the cruiseline, but on Carnival, we've always stayed on ship time - which is the time zone in which you begin you cruise.

I sailed on Carnival 2 times, and Disney once... Both left from Florida...

The ship DID NOT change time....

13 caribbean cruises on CCL and all times for ports were on SHIP TIME - which is based on the port from which you left.

This now makes me wonder if it will be the same for my Hawaiian cruise, which departs from Vancouver. Anyone know about this type of time change policy?
