World time zone maps generally show a series of perfectly regular
time zones divided at the appropriate meridians through the oceans
wherever there aren't any nations that set their time otherwise for
political reasons.

However, I suppose on any particular ship it would be up to the
captain to decide when to adjust ship time, not necessarily exactly
when those meridians are crossed.
