Did each cabin have an individual door lock? Same for all classes? Ayone know what kinds of keys, if they were locked?
I remember that conversation too! The general idea was the interconnecting doors between cabins had a double bolt, while actual doors to the cabins were left unlocked. It also stated that only the steward could lock and unlock the cabins.I remember talking about how the doors werent locked unless the ship was docked. I tried looking for where it was but I couldnt find it. Sorry!
This is the common meaning in the U.S., as well. The key style you described is frequently used to symbolize or depict keys in general, although relatively few keys are actually made like that.in the UK today, although there the term skeleton key means a key modified in such a way as to force open a large number of different locks and so is usually used by criminals in lock picking.
