Ship Time vs Island Time

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Normally I set my watch to ship time and don't worry about anything else.  This time, we are taking an independent tour of the Island and the tour operator would like to make sure they know what time island time we will be arriving. 
Can anyone tell me if the ship time and island time are the same for George Town Grand Cayman?

Just tell them your ship and posted docking time...they will know if there will be a "time change" on that sailing!  They do this ALL the time!

Unfortunately, this is not the case.  She is asking for confirmation from our ships authority on the island time that we will be arriving.   I had already given her the posted arrival time.

Which cruise line are you on and which embarkation port are you leaving from and when?

 

Grand Cayman is on GMT -5, meaning 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time. Does not observe Day Light Saving Time.  Thus currently GC time is the same time as Mobile, New Orleans or Galveston and 1 hour behind Florida ports time.  After November 1, GC time and Florida ports time will be the same.
