Sure enough, the crew begins to notice pipes running about the ship in a steam-punk manner, though perhaps not quite so many.
On the next floor, at the front of the ship is a huge quarter circle area made of glass below sea level. A large storage deck is behind that, containing (amongst many things), chests of bones, which Roger demonstrates he can puppeteer for manual labor (Puppeteering as something other than Necromancy, that doesn't manipulate anyone's soul).  At the back of the ship is the Engine Room (if it could be called one room) which houses large turbine-propellers (the controls for these apparently elsewhere), the cistern for in-taking and boiling seawater, and a few other contraptions. The ship also has a few bathrooms with capable plumbing.

Up into the front structure top-side, in the center of the bottom floor is what looks like a meeting room with an oblong table. Much of the tabletop is a mirror, and there's a standup mirror on one end of the room. Also on that floor is a miniature library, which accordingly is largely Troy's. The top floor seems to just be an arcane workshop, with a large circular clock in the center, facing upward with a fairly large crystal in the center. "And this," Crystal says, walking up to the clock-contraption, "is my pride and joy."
"Granted I helped," Roger interjects.

"Huh... Poncy."
Liked the skeleton crew though. How very... Punny.

Kai chuckles. "We'll, the boat's existing infrastructure did help but... We blew pretty much all of our adventuring gains on it. And I'll tell you we were pretty successful."

"So," Crystal says, walking to the other side of the clock and facing the party, "What we have here is the answer to 'how can you stand a chance of reaching the end of the world without dying of old age from months at sea?' The easy answer would be go really, really fast and fly, but that takes a lot of brute force and we just couldn't afford crystals that big. So our solution takes less power, and a lot more ingenuity..." She places her hand on the clock and the area under it glows blue. Blue lines extent off it, tracing the ground and going up the walls. "Were you outside, you'd see the silver filigree glow. Now this clock is set according to the sky..."

Slowly, the clock hand begins to move faster.

"Uhhhh, timey-wimey?"
Marceline makes a strained look on her face.
"So far, it appears your boat is a time machine. But most importantly, a time machine with a bar."

"In a sense, yes'" Crystal says. "In effect, we can slow down everything within the ship. Right now we've got it to about 10% speed once it warms up."

"Well you know, read a bunch of books, and Roger knows a lot about Magic,"

"Having turned myself into a skeleton and all."

"But really... I mean it wasn't THAT complicated, I just figured out how to do stasis bubbles and then project one around a ship's edges. I guess the trickiest part was getting it so that our minds accepted the speed change, because usually normal stasis only affects the physical, so we had to get it to reach into aetherial objects. That's where Roger's spirit knowledge came in handy."

"Oh!"
Marceline raises her hand to her chin, stroking it for a moment as she contemplates the time bubble.
"So, time is slowed down for us, making us age slower. I... Could have a lot of fun with that... Think of the possibilities! We could, like fit in 10% more debauchery!"
Marceline walks over, and begins to lovingly caress the clock.
"My my little clock, what sort of fun can we get into."

Crystal looks up at Marcy. "Well... We're going slower than outside. The clock is set to keep time outside the bubble."

"Looks like I'm going to be young for quite a while yet traveling here," Aurora says as her stomach growls a bit. "Oh, sorry. I'm really hungry. I haven't eaten since the bar."

"Yeah..." Crystal says, and glances at Kai. "I suppose it's a little ironic that over half your new recruits have nigh-immortality. Still, it will make the long trips more bearable for everyone."

Aurora the Dragon wrote:"Looks like I'm going to be young for quite a while yet traveling here," Aurora says as her stomach growls a bit. "Oh, sorry. I'm really hungry. I haven't eaten since the bar."

"Well then," Kai says, "Shall we make our way to our bar?"

Raising her fist into the air, Marceline lets out a joyous cry and shouts "JELLO SHOTS! LETS DO THIS!"
She then sprints off to the bar to prepare drinks. Burning a point of blood to get there quickly.

"Does wind rustle the leaves in the trees?"
Luc cracks his knuckles, a smile of suppressed eagerness cooking up across his face.
"I can cook that and much, much more. Might be a bit lacking in the way of seasonings at the moment, but I can make do."

And so there was dinner, drinking and perhaps some debauchery. Kai shared tales of the party's former exploits, such as the time Kalia took down a young dragon (which was terrorizing a town) but grappling it as it flew by low and then pinning its wings behind it, or the time they found a demon cult hidden in a mountain range.

Crystal stayed for dinner but left after awhile, and Kai followed to give an extensive goodbye. For the rest of the evening he seemed somewhat distant, but his lively manner returned when they set sail under the moonlight.

Aurora was offered bedding in the bar area for the night, but the plan was to merge two of the upper rooms to make one large enough. Luc and Marcy were offered the normal rooming, though as a joke Luc was also offered the storage deck with open rafters.
