Training ships were special navy ships on the Midnight Ocean that allowed players to practice the duty puzzles without pay. They would circle around the island via a special training route, so that the trip ended at the same island that it started from. Unlike other navy ships at the time, training ships could not be attacked by player ships.

If a player was practicing the gunnery puzzle, then the cannons would unload once the player exited the puzzle. This was a practice not yet implemented on navy ships at the time.

The training ships were removed with release 2004-07-09. The navy now serves the functions that the training ships once did, except that the navy uses regular routes between islands.
