Clocks Change In Cozumel

Cozumel Clocktower

Cozumel will put the clocks back an hour next Saturday night, along with the rest of Mexico. However, the clocks don't change in the U.S.A. and Canada until a week later, so there will be 7 days when the island is one hour behind Central Time and two hours behind Eastern Time.

This is especially important for cruise ship passengers, as their ship time may be an extra hour ahead of local island time when they arrive.

Different cruise lines have different ways of deciding what time their cruise ships take. Carnival and Royal Caribbean (RCCL) cruise ships, for example, usually go with the time of their homeport and stick with it, whereas Norwegian cruise ships change their onboard time during the voyage, to match the local port they are arriving to.

The itineraries they give passengers display ship times, so cruisers should remember this isn't necessarily the same as Cozumel time.

Changes to and from Daylight Savings Time in Mexico, and the U.S.A. and Canada are always slightly out of sync, which creates a few weeks in the spring and fall of each year when the time difference is more than usual.

If you're visiting soon on a cruise and are confused, don't worry! Here's a quick reference guide to help you work out what time it is...
