Best Answer

All International ships will use local time at the ports of call throughout the voyage. Most cruise lines will put reminders in your daily newsletters and/or cards on your bed at turndown to advise you to advance or turn back your clock before you go to bed. If you have to roll the clocks back, think of it as another hour to party... If you have to move it forward, it's just one less hour until your next...uh, meal! Sweet dreams and happy sailing!

What are the prices of bottles of wine on a cruise ship?

The cost of wine and champagnes on cruise ships (as with restaurants on land) is typically at least three times as high as they play for them at wholesale. To disguise the practice, many wineries use separate labels with different names for sale in restaurants on land and sea. This makes it difficult for customers to realize that they are paying perhaps three hundred and fifty percent more for the bottle than they would pay in their local retail store.

Can any one compare an ocean village cruise with a Thomson cruise?

The comparison between Ocean Village and Thomson is that they are both informal cruise lines, meaning you aren't tied to strict dining times and there isn't the same dress code as on some other more traditional cruise lines. They are also both British companies offering fly cruises, mostly down to the Med. They are also very family orientated. The difference is probably that the Thomson ships are smaller and often described as a little tired looking. Ocean Village is a higher quality of cruise.

What are the best times to go on a cruise?

The best times in the year to find seasonal deals for Western European cruises are during the fall or at other non-peak travel times. Peak travel times are the times in a normal year that are the busiest for cruise travels. These are generally the summer months like June, July and August, as well as holidays like Spring Break. These times are the most expensive times to go cruising because the demand to cruise is high.

Do cruise ships that go to the Antarctic have sonar?

All the modern cruise ships have some sort of sonar on board. It is used to look at the depth of water below the keel. Sonar is relatively cheap because the current electronics technology and the manufacturing techniques used for it are advanced. Sonar rigs are so cheap that small 2- or 3-person fishing boats can be equipped with it at only a modest cost. The so-called fish finders can be had for a couple of hundred bucks. When the safety of a large and expensive passenger ship and the lives of passengers are at stake, why not have a unit on board to tell you how deep the water is? They cost benefit ratio is such that it is crazy not to have a sonar unit or two on board. Sonars have been able to give cruise ships and other ships clear and successful navigation even at times when conditions are not that well.

How do you get a job on cruise?

If you want a cruise ship job ignore the salary and take the first position you can find. In 1984 I took a drop of £7.5 k and flew to Oriana in Sydney. I spent a total of 32 years at sea and nothing ever came close to the good times I experienced on that ship. I am an electrician which is usually an overworked position to hold on many ships. Prioritise what you want.
