Detail: In the days when this Lenormand system was created, ships were used for travel and commerce. So the card can mean a trip or journey overseas. It can represent a foreign, roaming or worldly person. It reflects commerce, even via the Internet. Since ships were used to take goods to and from other countries, it can represent importing and exporting as well. It can also represent a vehicle, such as a ship, car, plane, etc.
Compare: Compare this card to Rider, which brings news about something.
3 Ship + 1 Rider = News from abroad
3 Ship + 21 Mountain = A delayed trip
3 Ship + 29 Gentleman = A foreign gentleman
