English term or phrase: By Boat or by ship
I have found in a text tranlated from English into Romanian the translation for "by boat" (here it means "to go anywhere by ship, not by little boat") as "Cu vaporul". It seems to me that it is not correct, because I speak French and know that vapeur in French means steamer, not a ship. But my friend says that when you travel by boat you call it Cu vaporul. Is it right or there is a better translation for "by boat" with the necessary meaning?
