Default Are all the ships the same?

Do they all have the same beds? Same fixtures and fittings in the cabins? Same drinks and alternative dining prices? Same menus?

RCI is pretty much standard across the fleet with most of the little things being the same.

In the newer and larger ships there are more places to go and things to do.

The beds are not the same even within the same ship. In balcony rooms, the bottom corners are rounded, so you can walk past them to the balcony without banging your shins. In oceanview and interior rooms, they are rectangular. If you're tall (over 6 foot), you will notice the difference.

At least, that's how it was on the Radiance. Maybe other ships do it differently.

Alternative dining PRICES are all the same but the venues vary greatly from ship to ship.

Almost everything that I have seen from ship to ship is the same.

Obviously the larger ships will have more features.

As far as the prices, menu, drinks, shows, decor, ect, basically a carbon copy with small differences.

Same items, but may have different uses

For example on the older ships the zip wire is used to dry the bedsheets - every night you will see a young lass slide down and collect them all.

If you check out youtube you should see a clip of this.

I have never understood why experienced cruisers have to ruin some of the surprises that we all discovered on our early cruises. Would you please try to not spoil other things ( for example Dolphin training on the Port side of the ship, and the hot tubs that are used at night to make the soup )
