Default Time???

OK this may sound stupid but what time zone is the ship on??? When they say we get to port at 8 am is that in my case eastern time on Cozumel or CST since we leave from Galveston???? Sorry first timer.....

also how long does it take usually to get off the ship.

It is local time. If you change time zones, you will adjust the clock accordingly.

SS Norway (12 times) '85 - '97; Radiance OS 06/01; Island Princess 11/04, Grand Princess 11/04/05, Golden Princess 7/21/06, Golden Princess 2/24/07, Explorer of the Seas 12/23/07, Island Princess 11/15/08

Default Re: Time???


The times listed on the arrival & departure on the itenerary are "ship time". Typically "ship time" is the same time as the port you leave from, or at least on all the cruises we have been on. I.E. if you leave from Miami, Florida the "ship time" is Eastern. The time at the various ports can differ from "ship time" if you cross time zones. If you go to the informational meetings once on the ship they will explain this all to you in detail.

Happy cruising,
