The Shinra Electric Power Company Cargo Ship (運搬船, Unpansen?) is a form of transportation from Junon to Costa del Sol in Final Fantasy VII. The player must enter it once as a plot-required area; subsequent visits allow the player to travel to and from the East Continent to the West Continent, at the price of 100 gil per ride (free from Junon). It can also carry the buggy.
Cloud Strife and his party use the ship to follow Rufus Shinra after his inauguration as the new company president. During the trip the ship is infiltrated by Sephiroth who kills nearly everyone on board. After taunting Cloud, he leaves behind Jenova∙BIRTH to fight the party. The ship lands safely in Costa del Sol with all the main characters intact. After obtaining the Highwind the Cargo ship is gone.
One sailor on board, before Sephiroth attacks, is willing to help out the party - for a price. He can heal the party completely for 250 gil, and sells the following items:
|Phoenix Down||300 gil|
- Note: If Yuffie is recruited, she blocks the path to the All Materia. The player can still get it just before going to battle Sephiroth.
- Note: Monsters do not start appearing until Sephiroth attacks the ship.
The Cargo Ship appears as a location in several missions. It serves no storyline purpose.
