Below the Deck of the Columbia
With the year-long closure of the Rivers of America for preparations related to the construction of "Star Wars" land, the ships the sail around these waterways have also been docked indefinitely. Here's a look at the nautical museum below the deck of the ship, depicting life as it was like in 1787 for the first American crew to circumnavigate the globe.
|Life on a ship involves getting used to tight quarters.
|The galley is spacious by comparison...
|But not that spacious.
|A few decorations aboard the ship.
|Moving on toward the kitchen.
|Imagine preparing food while the ship tossed and turned over the waves at sea!
|Round back toward the steps leading up to the deck.
|Another look at the kitchen and pantry area.
|The steps leading down from the deck.
|And to the living quarters to the stern of the ship.
|The Captain's Quarters is the most luxurious, but everything is pretty close together.
|Looking back toward the bow.
|And a bit of daylight from the grate above.
