Would you take a cruise on a haunted ship ?

Last night I was watching "Ghost Brothers" on TV and they did a show on the haunted Delta Queen river boat.   She had been turned into a floating hotel and now has been moved to be refitted and returning to service as a river boat.

 

Would you book a cruise and pick one of the cabins known for having ghost activity ?

I would book a cruise on the Delta queen,   I think it would be fun......well fun until I get woken up by a ghost Nervous.    Id take a digital recorder with me and lots of photos to see if I could get anything interesting.

I'd pass on this. I would go on a cruise to relax and enjoy myself, not to be scared...especially for an extended period of time.

If it were "real" ghosts, I wouldn't have a problem. Unfortunately, the line would probably conjure up some "Disneyesque" crap to ruin the fun. (I enjoy Disney for what it is -- but don't try to push it on me if I want real).

Ummmm, I don't think so. I've seen a ghost in my hotel when I stayed Paris. My daughter saw a ghost in our hotel in Los Angeles. In London we heard screaming in the hotel at 3am each night we stayed there...We were in the last room in the hallway on the top floor.  When I told the people at the desk about it they said that they didn't get any complaints from anyone else. There was no one else at the end of our floor during our stay. Cant go willingly into being haunted.Surprised

I would (I think) enjoy a haunted cruise or hotel. I have (I think) been with some at different times, and my brother had his picture taken with one (not photoshopped, but actually an old-style glass print that is difficult if not impossible to doctor).

It is when a location markets itself as haunted, and then spends money into technology to "make the ghosts" that I do not appreciate.

Think they can charge extra for those rooms?  Or would they have to discount them?

I do not think they will market it as a haunted attraction,  but the ship is known for having ghost.  Just like the Queen Marry is known to be haunted and is running as a floating hotel. (I have never spent the night at the QM since I live 1/2 hour away).  The Del Coronodo in San Diego CA, is known to have a haunted room and they keep changing the # on that room so people wont know what room it is.

No, I enjoy my sleep too much. Nervous

 

Yeah, but its nothing like being awaken from a deep sleep with screaming. That's scary....We didn't know if we would have to do the "Shining" shuffle or the straight up "Amityville Horror" I'm stepping on my kids going for broke run. LOL . I laugh now.
