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

Acquisition[edit | edit source]

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

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

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 Isabela: friendship (+5). Refusing will result in Rivalry 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 on the friendship path:

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

The following dialogue options are available on the rivalry path:

  • "Don't you like it?"
  • "Isn't it cute?"
  • "It's an ornament."


  • "I wasn't trying to upset you."
  • "Exactly."
  • "You're such a bitch."

Result[edit | edit source]

  • On friendship path: Friendship Isabela: friendship (+10) (all dialogue options)
  • On rivalry path: Rivalry Isabela: rivalry (+10) (all dialogue options)
  • +250 XP
