A boat. That's all it should be. It's just a boat. People need to calm down with all this other crap; a ship is a BOAT. A big piece of metal that floats miraculously on the surface of the water, and usually holds people and/or cargo.
There is a ship in that movie. It was very large and it caught fire and people on it died.

A couple. Two people one thinks should date, or likes that they do/did. Usually combines the two names to make a ship name, i.e.:John+Karen=Jaren. Usually the boy's name goes first, however it is used. It can combine the last names to such as peazer+payne=payzer. A rare form of a ship name is one name inside another, such as louis+eleanor=elounor(i don't ship it). A ship is the couple. To ship something is to suppourt the ship. Shipping is when you create ships. Ships are most commonly used in fandoms or with celebrities, but are also used for people you know. Also commonly used for fictional characters.
"Do you ship Joe and Stacey?"
"Yes! Their ship name should be Stoe. Or Jacey!"
