Last cruise (Navigator) I brought my own clock from home. We were in an inside stateroom and I like to know what time it is. My clock always seemed to end up being the wrong time. I am guessing it has something to do with being at sea.
Can you bring battery operated clocks that will remain the correct time?

My watch always kept the correct time, just not the clock we plugged in.

Thanks for your help

We also bring a electric clock, and found that the room steward would unplug it to plug in his vacuum. So keep an eye on the time, especially before turning in at night. Battery clocks work fine too. I sometimes bring a small one for the bathroom.

Keep your tv turned to the channel that has the "Bridge Cam". It usually is a picture of what they see from the bridge looking out across the bow. There will also be "Ship's Time"

Hope This Helps.

It seemed like sometimes out clock would be way off (even at night) I son't think it was ever unplugged.
Has this happened to anyone else?

I guess I will try a battery clock next time.

We carry a tiny travel alarm clock that is readible in daylight and has a light up feature that is activated by touching a touch pad. I think it was probably 9.99 at Target. The battery (about the size of a nickel) lasted about 2 1/2 years.

i totally agree with DARRELL & DONNA "bridge cam" is by far the best way, if you keep the tv on all night, then as it gets lighter in the morning so does the room.

That's a very cool tip that I've never heard - almost like having a window. I'm lucky enough to have a balcony on my next cruise, but I'm going to try that the next time I have an interior room.

About the clocks, and I may be wrong about this, but I've heard that the electricity on a ship tends to fluctuate a bit, which may be throwing off your clocks.

The electricty does do funny things to your electric clock! I thought my room steward was playing 'mind games' with me until I was told about the electricty! Take a Battery operated clock!(Or just don't worry about the time!--You're on vacation!)

My husband tried taking off his watch the first time we cruised. Then he realized he was missing some things he really wanted to do! Now the watch is back on.
