Default Daylight Savings Time and Sunsets

OK, I sail on January 13 on a Western Caribbean cruise and everyone has already had to set their clocks back an hour, right? As I understand, all the ports we'll visit are also on Central Time as we are up here in Amarillo, TX. But, did they have to set their clocks back an hour also?

Also, since the sun is setting earlier here on account of the fall seasons and time change, will it be as noticable down at the ports? Will the sun be setting earlier there as well?

Just curious.

In January the days are short all over the US....it is not quite as noticeable the further south you go. The sunsets will still be quite early in the Carribean.

The ships will continue on the time that the home port has. For instance, if you leave from Galveston, which is on Central Time, even if you go to Key West, the ship will still be on Central Time.

Cruised more times than I can remember.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Thanks y'all!
But the one question still remains about Daylight Savings Time. If we in the Central time zones are changing to the Winter schedule, will they follow suit?
