A Ship for Isabela is a companion quest for Isabela in Dragon Age II Act 2.


Finding a Ship in a Bottle in Smuggler's Cut during Blackpowder Courtesy will trigger the quest.


Head to the Hanged Man in Lowtown to give it Isabela.

There may be a brief cutscene with Isabela approached at the bar by a man with a very bad pickup line. If you have completed a romance with a character other than Isabela, she will comment on it. Allowing her to make the joke will result in Friendship small Isabela: friendship (+5). Refusing will result in Rivalry small Isabela: rivalry (+5). This is separate from A Ship for Isabela and may also occur before Questioning Beliefs (Isabela Act 2), depending on which order you complete the quests and the romance.

The following dialogue options are available:

  • "It reminded me of you."
  • "Cute?"
  • "It's not cute."
  • "The best thing is below decks." (Flirt)


  • On friendship path: Friendship small Isabela: friendship (+10) (all dialogue options)
  • On rivalry path: Rivalry small Isabela: rivalry (+10) (all dialogue options)
  • +260 XP
