Default Time Zones - Jamaica

Do you know VOS policies on time zones? I know on Carnival we stayed on ship's time, but I'm not sure how RCI works. We are trying to plan shore tours and need to know if the time in the brochures for arrival are EST or Jamaican Standard Time. Thanx in advance

You stay on ship's time.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic.

You stay on ship's time, and Jamaica is Central time zone, 1 hour behind ship's time. You could call RC just to verify that

While it is true that Jamaica, and Grand Cayman are an hour behind "Florida time" they are actually on Eastern Standard time, they just don't "do" daylight saving time.
