Life aboard a Type 45 vs 23

General question about the differences between life aboard a type 23 and a type 45/ pro's and con's of each.

I know you don't really get to choose your draft and even then there's a lot more to consider than just living conditions/quality of life however, it is something that I believe goes towards choosing.

I'm aware type 23's are a fair bit smaller, so I assume that means tighter living conditions and less things like gym's etc but I'm also aware that type 45's seem to be alongside considerably more than type 23's. Apart from that I don't really have that much information.

Final question, would it make sense in trying to go on a type 23 now in the hopes of getting on a type 26 as soon as one is available or is that stupid?

Sounds very affectionate xD thanks

Is the love shared around? What about devonport or clyde?
Devonport ratings are mostly skin, essence and all round snappy dressers.
Faslane ratings are incomprehensible, pasty white and smell. Although they generally have loads of money and aren't afraid of telling everyone.
