The Airship, also known as the Ghost Airship, is a major location in Rule of Rose.
Most of the rooms on the airship are the equivalent to or represent a room in the orphanage (though the layout varies, for example, the Club Room on the same floor as the Sick Room).
Most of the game is set on the airship as opposed to the orphanage, thus the area is a larger explore and there are more places for events to happen.
Jennifer states that she "couldn't bear" playing Airship with the other children as an airship's fatal crash caused the ill fate of her parents.
|“|| The future that people dreamt of never came and was soon forgotten. From the blue skies of hope, it sank into the depths of oblivion. The new life born from it was an existence devoid of hope. It slowly wriggles its large body and stares at the sky with a remorseful look... That's its only purpose.
The airship is doubtlessly based off of the fatal R101 flight of 1930. Not only does the airship in the game bear a strong (outer and inner) resemblance to the R101 flight, but it took off in Cardington, 1930, and was set for the location of India. The unfortunate fate of the flight left all but eight people to perish, one of whom, according to the game, was Jennifer.
