Default Transatlantic timezones

How do they account for time zones on a transatlantic cruise. Do you have a 25 hour day on the way there and a 23 hour day on the way back, or do they keep embarkation time?

As you cross the Atlantic, time is adjusted as you cross the time zones. You will set the clock ahead or back one hour for each time zone.
