well you can always use your cellphone alarm either way you can use it to call if there is something important or even like a alarm clock,
that's what I do in case there is trouble back home and is less expensive than the telephone on the ship...

CF-

Most cellphones get a current time signal via the cellphone network. The cell phone clock function is not that accurate and many do not keep acturate time without the signal from the network.

Now most cruise ships have started providing on board cell phone networks but I can't speak for there time accuracy.

Bottom line, I'm not sure how accurate your phone clock will be on a cruise. It may work, it may not. AND if you are on a ship that does not provide cell phone service, the phone battery will die much faster since it will continuely be trying to run at full power trying to find a cell phone network.

Just food for thought.

well
I know that there are few cellphones that the time is given by the company and that's a good point

but mine is not time regulated from the company so is an option for me
anyhow he just have to check with their cellphone and it could be what he need...

Very true Cas, I just noted that Nat complained that the first clock she tried didn't keep good time. I didn't want her trying the cell phone and have it NOT keep good time either. So I was just posting a warning. With the cruise ships providing cell coverage now, the "no system time" issue may no longer be an issue at all.

GOOD NEWS , THE CLOCK I SENT FOR WORKS!!!
It has a sensor light on the top right near the snooze button, when it senses darkness it lights up (3 AA batterys)!!! I went in my closet where it is really dark and sure enough you could see the numbers bright and clear!!!! The name is Night Vision Technology! PM if you want the name of the website. Also, we can't even get service on our cell phones, we have to rely on my parents cell to phone home, so it would not work for us.

Well, I'm glad you found a clock. Let it run and see how well it keeps time and how long the batteries will last. It would not be fun to find out that the batteries only last 4 nights of a seven night cruise and not have replacements.

That is a very good point, I will run it and report back, hopefully it won't be to soon!!

Nat,
I appreciate organized people, truly I do, but you are on holidays. What does it matter what time of the day or night it is. If you feel like sleeping in, indulge. If you have an shore excursion the following day, go to bed shortly after super. Forget the clock, enjoy life. We're regimented enough.....

Muleman, I have to tell you that my Mom said the same thing! But my Dad (they are coming with us) said "get me one"! I do relax, but I wake up 2-3 times and for some reason I need to know what time it is.!! It's that TYPE A personality I have (per my MOM). And guess what? Its over a week and the clock is still just as bright as the first night
