What is a sister ship?


Sister ships are two ships built by the same line, are practically the same size, and that start out from the same plans. Sister ships often have different looks and give different feelings (for example, Cunard's Mauretania felt "dark and heavy," but her sister Lusitania felt "light and airy"), but the layout of the ships were practically the exact same. The rooms in both ships are placed the same, so if you could find your way around one ship, you could easily find your way around the other.
