One of the grand boats that makes its way around the Rivers of America is the Sailing Ship Columbia. Please take a ride on it if you have the opportunity. It's a nice relaxing cruise; you can sit above deck or walk below deck and check out the mini floating museum of sorts. You can get a small glimpse of what life was like. These are the captain's quarters.
Imagineers wanted to create a faithful replica of the actual ship Columbia, but sadly, there were no copies of the plans for the original vessel. Instead, they tracked down plans for the HMS Bounty and used those for reference in re-creating this vessel. It was made in a shipyard in Long Beach and made its Disneyland debut in 1958.
