13 was the only number not used on the ship.

It does seem interesting, that the "unlucky" number 13 was not a cabin number.

That superstition goes back a long way. I don't know how it is in England but in the US you'll rarely find a 13th floor.

This isn't always true. In most modern highrises, it may be true as they skip the numbering, but in older buildings, there can be 13 buttons in the elevators...especially older "Otis Brand" elevators.
