HI, All those experienced Transatlantic cruise travelers: Questions: From Florida to UK how many hours a day do you loose? Will we want to eat dinner at 3AM at some point? Does it leave one with a jet lag kind of effect, or no problem? Eeekkk , I just started to think about this two days from departing. Eastbound we are definitely loosing time. All assistance and comments are very much appreciated.
You will lose a total of five hours but only an hour a day so your body has time to adjust. We have made eastbound ta's on Celebrity, Oceania, and NCL. Those cruise lines make the time adjustment at night. So, on each of five nights we had to set our clocks an hour ahead, losing an hour of sleep. Not hard to adjust our bodies to the total change.
