Default Mexican Riviera Time Zones and Ship's Time

We will be cruising on Ryndam in December to the Mexican Riviera. The ship will pass through three different time zones during its voyage. How does the ship manage the time changes? Is the ship’s clock adjusted to the time zone it sails in or does the ship’s clock remain at a constant time (PST I assume) throughout the entire cruise?

I did a Mexican Riviera on Princess about 4 years back, but I'm doing a 6 day goes to Cabo and La Paz. It has been my experince that they adjust you slowly. Like an hour a day. It is in the cruise activity list that is left in the room every night. I like this method cause you never get "Jet Lag" feeling. I hope that helps. Once I get back from 6 day I can give more informaton.

The clocks are adjusted as you proceed through each time zone. There will be or should be a card on your pillow when the cabin steward turns down the bed in the evening advising you to turn your clocks either forward or backward that night. When we crossed from LA to Hawaii it was a 3 hour time change, so they did it slowly on the night before we arrived in the next time zone.

It's also printed in the daily program, but be careful and don't do what we did on our first cruise. The program was in our cabin when we returned after dinner and we thought it meant we were to change our clocks that night - not so. The program was for the next day not that particular night. Consequently we were up an hour early the next morning and wondered where everyone was.
