All features in detail

Features from A–Z Description
Call configuration The alarm call can be configured as follows: Ringing time, repetitions, pause between ringing, number of repetitions, time format, and many more.
Check-in / Check-out Once a cabin is checked in, a wake-up call can be set for that room. Upon check-out, all wake-up calls for this cabin are deleted.
Dashboard A clear dashboard shows the desired rooms in the context of the configured wake-up calls. All cabins, cabins with a wake-up call, cabins without a wake-up call, or all groups can be displayed. The search function is also available.
Deployment The Cruise Wake-up module is licensed as an optional module and uploaded to the Callisto platform with the Cruise package during the initial installation. Prepared as an appliance image (OVA), the Callisto system can be installed on any virtual machine or physical server.
Global number plan

E.164 numbers supported
green-IT Lowest resource requirements in the industry with the highest performance: 2 to 8 CPUs, 2 to 6 GB RAM, 80 GB HD, up to max. 1’000 parallel calls per image.
Group wake-up calls Groups entered in the Cruise Base module are also available in Cruise Wake-up for the configuration of wake-up calls.
High Availability Yes
Languages Cruise Wake-up is multilingual for the wake-up IVR and the announcements. The language is set during check-in.
PMS Support Cruise Wake-up receives all necessary information for the service at check-in/-out from the corresponding PMS. At check-out, all possibly still existing wake-up calls are deleted.
Provisioning Manually or automatically from Cisco UCM through AXL or Microsoft AD,
LDAP/OpenLDAP system and CSV files. Web services (REST) supported.

Scalability Up to 960 parallel calls on one Callisto appliance. Additional instances supported. Unlimited number of Callisto wake-up users. Parallel wake-up calls depend on the number of available lines at the time of the wake-up call.
Security https, SIPS, password and PIN security, appliance security, integrated firewall
Supported Phones / Clients Module Cruise Wake-up primarily supports all Cisco phones, as well as the Jabber and Webex clients, but also all other phones in a UCM environment.
Time announcement The announcement of the exact time on a wake-up call is made automatically with the preselected voice by the Cruise Line, thanks to Callisto Syswave technology.
Time format 24h or the 12h format can be configured.
Time synchronization / time zones The time set by the Cruise Base module after a corresponding time zone change is newly adopted for the wake-up time. The wake-up calls are executed at this new time in each case. Wake-up calls that have moved into the past due to the time zone change are triggered immediately.
Voice Protocols and Codecs Both codecs are supported based on the SIP protocol, G.711 and G.729.

Callisto Cruise Wake-up – Your best choice


Cruise Wake-up is integrated into the Callisto check-in/check-out management process. The modularity of Callisto offers loads of advantages to the customer.


Cruise Wake-up offers simplicity and professionalism for guests/crew and front desk staff. Simple yet efficient for a high number of simultaneous wake-up calls.


The wake-up call is a must-have on board a ship and is still widely used. In Callisto, this service is simply available.

Custom wake-up calls

The challenge on cruise ships is to wake up every subscriber in time when there are many simultaneous wake-up calls. Simply dimensioning a system for this very short full load would not be effective. For this reason, Cruise Wake-up offers a wide range of configuration options to achieve the best efficiency with the smallest resource requirements. Influencing parameters are, for example:

  • Number of simultaneously set wake-up calls
  • Number of simultaneously available lines for the wake-up calls
  • Time until a wake-up call is accepted
  • Time until a wake-up call is entered
  • Time until a wake-up call is answered or the call is hung up again
  • Number of attempts required for a wake-up request

To optimize on-time wake-up orders with respect to available system resources, Cruise Wake-up provides the following setting options:

  • the number of simultaneously available lines on the system (license)
  • the ringing time for a wake-up call
  • the number of repetitions for one wake-up call
  • the maximum number of simultaneous calls for a wake-up call
  • the maximum number of concurrent calls for setting up wake-up calls
  • the automatic detection of diverted phones with wake-up calls

These parameters ensure that a large number of simultaneous wake-up calls are in an optimal ratio to the system resources and that all guests or crew members are woken up on time.

A nice day begins with a friendly voice

Who of us would not like to be woken up in the morning by a friendly voice to start the new day? This friendly voice for the wake-up call is, of course, different for each cruise line and must match the CI/CD of the company. Therefore, each cruise line should be able to create its own individual wake-up call announcements. Even the automatically composed spoken wake-up time sound – thanks to Callisto Syswave technology – in the voice chosen by the cruise line for the recordings. Good morning Callisto wake-up – your guests will love it!

Front office overview

Guests would like to know from the reception whether they have already entered a wake-up order for the departure day or would like to register a new wake-up order, possibly even a repetitive one. No problem: Cruise Wake-up provides the front office with a clearly arranged dashboard with all cabins, and the corresponding room can be searched directly. All cabins with a wake-up order, without a wake-up order, or group wake-up orders can also be filtered and displayed. The color nuanced display of the cabins lets the responsible persons immediately recognize the cabin wake-up status.

The front office can easily fulfill all customer requests related to wake-up orders using the dashboard. Questions about existing wake-up orders, rescheduling, or repetitive orders over several days or until the end of the trip. All that in with just one module.

Easy group wake-up

Mostly, groups have the same schedule and have to meet at a defined time at a defined place. In many cases, the whole group should be reminded or woken up at the same time. Therefore Cruise Wake-up provides the possibility of a group wake-up call. Groups can easily be created in the Cruise Base module, imported, or synchronized via PMS. Afterward, the groups are automatically available in Cruise Wake-up for selecting or setting wake-up calls. Simple, fast, efficient.

Reporting of wake-up calls

It can happen that the guest has set the wrong time and is woken up at a different time than desired. The staff has access to a comprehensive wake-up call reporting system for such customer complaints. All steps from entering the wake-up request to answering the wake-up call are stored in the wake-up calls reporting.

  • executing source
  • action itself
  • time of the action
  • result of the action
  • cabin number
  • wake-up time
  • and if necessary, the group concerned
