I have an odd question for all of you...Have you ever taken an alarm clock for your stateroom and found that it does not keep good time--it keeps going fast (digital clock). At first, I thought that maybe my room steward was playing with my head, but I kept resetting the time, and it would keep speeding up (I use the same clock at home, and it is fine). I can't imagine what would make it do this. Any ideas?
(My husband thinks I'm nuts!)

Time always seems to fly on a cruise!! Honestly, I wish I had a better answer for you. Maybe a difference in voltage from home

Husbands sometimes think that. I am one and my wife said once I was driving her carazy. My reply... "that would be a short trip" didn't go over well. Just teasing... with you and her.

Happy sailing, Neil

Sorry, but the laws of physics are constant - both at home and on a ship. The only variable would be the difference between your electric current at home as opposed to the ship - and that shouldn't be enough to make a difference otherwise many other things on the ship wouldn't work right....laptop computers, etc.
