The S.S. Tipton or Steam Ship Tipton was a civilian cruise liner featured in the The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and more prominently in the next series: The Suite Life on Deck. The two principle workers included Mr.Moseby and Emma Tuttweiller. The ship also had a high school onboard. This high school was taught by Emma Tutweiller and was the current school of Zack and Cody. The ship traveled throughout the world and stopped at countless ports and harbors. This ship also featured a grand dining room, gym, ballroom, bar, swimming pool, hot tub, bingo room, lifeboats, and stroll deck like many other ships. The ship's passenger capacity was about 2,000 people. The ship's weight was at least 87,000 tons and it was 13 stories high above sea level. The ship also had the largest shopping center ever floating. The ship was around 250-300 meters long and ìt drove on heating water which means it was environmental friendly. In the final episode Graduation on Deck, Mr. Tipton sold the S.S. Tipton and the ship was dismantled after docking in New York.
It can debated how old the S.S. Tipton is, but Mr. Mosbey stated in the episode The Kidney of the Sea that the ship had its plank removed in the eighteenth century, making it possibly over four hundred years old (most likely it was just a joke). When Mr. Mosbey gave Captain Lungsford a model replica of the very first S.S. Tipton in the episode, Cruisin' for a Bruisin', it looked to be ancient, as it featured old-fashioned sails, and was made of wood. It is possible that the ship has been heavily renovated and refurbished since this time, as Mr. Moseby did say that it was a model of the 'first' S.S. Tipton.
