I know this is kind of a strange question, but here goes. Do they have clocks on board the ships. I don't want to wear a watch and we are traveling with two teenagers who never wear watches. I want to make sure they will know what time it is so we can meet up at certain times. Thanks.
Yes, they have clocks on the ship but as was stated not a lot. One interesting fact you may not even be interested in knowing but here it is; In the early days of shipping after Columbus discovered the "new world" the biggest problem they had was knowing what their longitude was, it was discoved that with two clocks one set with Greenwich time and the other set according to the sun at 12 noon they were able to determine longitude. There is a hold over from that to this day and you will find a clock on all ships near where the maps and ship location etc are located. This of course now is only out of tradation since all ships now use GPS.
the clocks are few and far between. I know that there is one at the pool. No clocks in your stateroom, you can check the time on your TV and the phone has a display. We always pack a battery-operated travel alarm clock.
An inexpensive watch is really a good idea, especially on the islands.
Thanks for all the great info. I am going to bring walkie talkies for sure. And now I know I am going to bring a battery operated clock for the room. There isn't a plug to bring an electric one is there? Thanks again.
