Question:   How do I estimate transit days?
Answer:   Transit days are defined as the amount of time, measured in days, to transit from the port of departure to your first station, plus the days required to transit from your last station to the arrival port. This is determined from the arrival/departures ports that you requested. However, these ports are subject to change at the discretion of the ship scheduler. It is best to contact the respective ship scheduler to ensure adequate time is planned for your overall science program/cruise.
