How long was the trip from Earth to Mars for Insight from blastoff to landing?

According to NASA's launch timeline, InSight launched at 5 May 2018, 12:05 PM UTC.

According to the up-to-date InSight Wikipedia page, InSight landed at 26 November 2018, 19:54 UTC.

This means that the entire trip took 205 days, 7 hours, and 49 minutes.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Space Exploration! As neither of the cited times included a seconds figure, I'm going to edit out the seconds from your otherwise devastatingly precise answer. $\endgroup$ – Russell Borogove Nov 26 '18 at 20:46
