Ships time is always home port time. So Miami would be eastern time. Cozumel is actually on central time. But you would use the eastern time zone like the ship. Just set your watch to the ships time and you'll be fine

Not always true. On many voyages the clocks are moved ahead or back when crossing time zones.

When I went Miami to Cozumel on Carnival in March, The ship time changed so much my head was spinning. And it did not match home port time during the cruise. There is plenty of warning-via announcements and the ships daily paper of the time to follow. When in doubt ask any Carnival employee. Remember the ship LEAVES on ship TIME! We left a couple of cruisers behind because they weren't paying attention.

The Capers will have the time restraints on the front page if necessary.

I found this true on every one of the 10 cruises I've taken. I've never been on a ship that didn't change to island time.

Hmmm every cruise I have been on has stayed the same time regardless. I suppose it's diff. But I have never had to change time zones.

If anything, pay attention to the announcements and the capers. The CD will announce if the time bumps forward or back, or if it stays the current time.

The time on on the Conquest changed TWICE!!!! It went forward an hour heading to Jamaica and then bumped back when we headed to Cozumel!!!!!

Luckily, the time on the next cruise stays eastern--alas, still two hours ahead of my time at home!!!!

My first few cruises we changed clocks like socks.. every day it seemed. The last few trips we stayed on ship time. Just dont ask people in port what time it is or look at a port clock. It could mess up your trip badly..
