Legends and Ghosts

Some would argue that cruise ships combine 2 things that tend to be haunted, ships and hotels.

Does anyone have any good stories or know of some legends?

It is October, after all.

Never ever heard of any tales or possible close encounters cruisers may have had. Will be interesting to read of such.

I don't know any stories or legends but I do know that cruise lines skip having a 13th deck out of superstition!

Not quite...we've sailed NCL BREAKAWAY 2x, and have 2 more booked on her sister GETAWAY, including the one coming up shortly. Both ships have a 13th deck, matter of fact, our cabin of choice happens to be on that deck, on both ships. And we book far enough in advance to get the same cabin number all 4 times (Its a bump out balcony). Given the number of people we see on their way to and from their cabins, or out on their balconies, it would appear that most folks aren't superstitious about it. Besides, being a contrary type, I like it...heheheh

I have not encountered a cruise ship with no Deck 13. I believe that is a NA superstition and many of the cruise lines are not NA controlled. They just sail a lot out of NA. Pretty well all NCL ships have a deck 13 and Anthem had a deck 13 as well.

I stand corrected and will clarify - many, MANY cruise ships don't have a deck 13. Not all.

There's got to be some spooky stuff out there.

We just go off of the Carnival Breeze, not only is there no deck 13, there is no table in the dining room with 13. First time I noticed that!

They say the Queen Mary is haunted. But she did serve during WW2. As far as our modern day cruising nothing spooky or haunted. We did sail on one Halloween on the Golden and the whole crew dressed up. There were goblins everywhere , it was a lot of fun!

There are always gremlins everywhere ... why else would odd things go amiss or missing or awry.

Because s&#t happens....heheheheh
