The beautiful thing about a model ship is its ability to inspire anyone around it who is remotely interested in the sea. A cruise ship, on the other hand, goes a step beyond this and triggers a second style of inspiration.


You may love cruise ships for the ship itself.

This is understandable. It’s like a massive hotel floating in the ocean. They are large, they can be beautiful and they can traverse the most intense seas. Historically, cruise ships have created a new class of travel, captured media attention with their tragedies and evolved from a practical option to one of luxury.

But cruises go beyond just the ship itself.

A cruise combines world travel with the serenity of the sea. Thousands of people live aboard a ship while traveling the world. If you have ever taken one of these voyages, I’m willing to bet that your memories include plenty of details from your favorite destinations that you visited.

Where did you go? What did you do? Who were you with?

I’m guessing it wasn’t one place, but many places filled with incredible experiences (well, at least I hope they were incredible experiences). Cruises can take you almost anywhere. They can be tropical or take you to the see world’s cities. You can even go out and see glaciers.

A model cruise ship will make sure you remember all the places you went and you will be inspired to take another trip every time you enter the room where it sits.


A postcard can have a similar affect. The visual aid reminds you of an amazing experience from the past. You see it vividly and more easily maintain the memory because of it. But a model ship does more than this. It’s not just about one place at one point in time. Cruises take you around the world. You live on them and share experiences with friends and family or go alone and make new friends.

The point I’m trying to make here is that for anyone who has taken a cruise and loved it, a model ship is an ideal method of remembrance. It’s not merely a reminder of a moment, but a symbol that encompasses the entirety of your trip and the potential to experience all that the world has to offer.
