Kaiserliche Marine sailors quarters

Hi guys. I have always believed that the sailors of the SMS slept in barracks when at port. Can anyone confirm this or if they stayed at their ships?

Regards

Marcelo,
I too have believed the KLM crews especially for battleships, batttlecruisers & larger cruisers stayed in barracks when in a home port with rotated detachments being on board. KLM ships we're not spacious when it came to crew accommodations. I think you would need to get some original German texts to confirm it.
