Ship time vs local time

Recommended Posts

On all of the Med cruises I've been on (10+), the ship time has been the same as local time. I can't imagine any good reason for having it any other way.

This varies by cruise line, so I would be asking on the board for the cruise line involved. 

 

There are a couple of rare exceptions, but ship time and port time are usually the same, on most cruise lines.

France and Italy are on Central European time (UTC +2), Greece is on Eastern European time (UTC +3).

 

Every cruise I've been on if there is a change in the local time the ship's time is changed to align with it.  You'll get a note in your cabin saying something about the ship's time will move forward or back at 2 AM (for example).

May seem like a silly question, but will the time on my cellphone and Apple Watch adjust automatically to the correct time zone?

If they contact with wifi or a cell tower, yes.
