Has anyone ever used a global atomic alarm clock on a European/Mediterranean cruise? I thought it might be nice to have an alarm clock that automatically sets to the time zone I'm in (so I would never have to think about which time zone I was in). However, I wasn't sure if it would work out at sea. I know Seiko makes one...
I think I would have to agree with kingpinlv. Back in 2001 my DH had one of those Seiko beeper/alarm watches that would adjust the time every hour or so. While on a cruise we had to set it a head an hour to be the same as where we were as instructed by the Capers. We took a nap, setting the alarm for our wake up. We got dressed for the Captain's Party then Formal Dinner. When we arrived at the party location we were informed it was over and dinner has started. We were an hour late because the Seiko "global" system adjusted back the hour to the US time!! Now we just bring a travel alarm clock and hope the battery doesn't stop!

I didn't even know there was a "global" one. I have a U.S. one that works off th radio signal that comes from Ft. Collins Colorado, and by which I set all our watches and clocks, but didn't know about a global version. The U.s. version does not work offshore, or overseas.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
