What?  A Nantucket Sleigh Ride?  It's what happens when you harpoon a whale & it tows you around the ocean!  It's called that because most of the whalers from New England were from Nantucket.

No, not a ship.  Two of the more famous whaling ships of the era are the Charles W. Morgan (currently at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut), and the Essex (sunk by a whale in 1820). The Essex was the inspiration for Moby-Dick.
