SS Columbia TDS

S.S. Columbia is a representation of a passenger ship in Tokyo DisneySea at the Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan. It is located in the 'New York Harbor' section of the American Waterfront in the park. The ship was designed as a recreation of a 20th century steam-powered ocean liner.

Origin and design

Tokyo DisneySea was designed with a nautical and maritime theme. The liner was chosen as a representation of iconic steam liners such as RMS Titanic, though the Columbia is not a specific recreation of the Titanic. The ship's funnels are painted in the Cunard Line's color, and is similar in appearance to the RMS Queen Mary, currently a museum ship and hotel at Long Beach, California. The Columbia was not designed as a recreation of the Queen Mary owing to initial plans to build DisneySea at Long Beach, California, an idea which was later scrapped, but many of the designs were transferred to the Tokyo Disney park.[1].

The ship was designed to take visitors to the park from 'New York Harbor' to 'Mediterranean Harbor', two locations in Tokyo DisneySea. To make it more like a 20th century passenger ship, the ship is towed by a small steam tug before departure.

Interior and exterior

The ship houses a restaurant and serves as the backdrop for live stage shows on the Dockside Stage. The ship's visitors can explore the ship. The ship's upper deck provides elevated views of the park. The main dining room is located on Deck B (the ship's third level). Inside, period atmosphere is provided by a music from a grand piano.
