Daylight savings time and Atlantic Time Zone

Who has cruised on DCL after daylight savings time? The March 8th cruise on the fantasy is 1 day before DLST. Then after the first day or so we would be in the Atlantic time. Will the ship adjust to the Atlantic time and DLST? (I would prefer if someone cruised and had first hand knowledge of this).

Thanks

You will be notified when to change your clocks. We have cruised during the DLST change and moved our clocks accordingly.

So will my clocks be moving twice then on the cruise? One hour back for DLST and once to get to Atlantic time?

Not sure how it is going to work since I just looked up St Maarten and St Thomas and they both do not have Daylight Saving time in the year 2014 but do other years.

So saying that I am thinking we won't have to change our clocks twice. But I guess we will have to wait and see what they tell us on the ship. We too are sailing on this cruise where the time changes.

On our first cruise, a WC, we changed our clock like 3 or 4 times. On our second cruise, also a WC, they only had us change it twice. I prefer that the ship change times to the ports as it is easier to keep track of when we have to be back on.

My advice is to not worry about it and just go with the flow.
