Q: How do you say this in English (US)? there are so many types of boats, I want to know how to express " take a ship to somewhere" in a native way? and where to get on the ship? thank you
A: It depends on where you want to go.

A ship that carries people a short distance on a regular schedule is called a ferry. It serves a function similar to a bus or a taxi. If that’s the case, you should say, “I want to take a ferry to _____,” and fill in the blank with where you want to go.

If you mean to take a ship to an exotic location for pleasure, you are referring to a cruise. You might say “I want to take a cruise in the Caribbean.”

If you mean a longer voyage—across the ocean, for instance—you might need to ask what ships are available in the first place. Passenger ships are less common in the age of airplanes. Booking a plane flight is usually easier than trying to find a ship to take you.
