Which is the correct proposition to put before "vessel"?

"As a traveler and doctor, you have supported the internationalization of our struggle, by sailing around the world on Cilicia and Armenia vessels and by crossing seas and oceans, hoisting the national flags of the Republic of Armenia and Artsakh."

    Instead of "on Cilicia and Armenia vessels" you need "on the Cecilia and the Armenia".

    By is the preposition to use when you don't name the ship, e.g. I travelled by steamer.
