The Ship is a mummers playhouse in Braavos.[1] It is also known as the Mummer's Ship.

About

It sits across the street from the Happy Port moored to a quay for the last twenty years.[2] Girls from mummers troupes who start giving sexual favours wind up on the Ship, where every man in the pit knows he can have any pretty thing he might see up on the stage - if he has enough coin.

A Feast for Crows

The mummers of the Ship intend to put on a performance of Seven Drunken Oarsmen as an answer to the Blue Lantern's performance of The Lord of the Woeful Countenance.[1]

The mummers show Arya Stark how a hero stands, and teach her the speeches from The Song of the Rhoyne, The Conqueror's Two Wives, and The Merchant's Lusty Lady. Quill, the sad-eyed little man who makes bawdy farces for the Ship, offers to teach Arya how a woman kisses, but Tagganaro hits him with a codfish and puts an end to that. [1]

Joss the Gloom relates the story of how Quence found Allaquo in bed with Sloey. The two mummers fought with swords and both left the Ship, leaving the performance of Seven Drunken Oarsmen without two oarsmen.[1]
