Cruise Ship Haunting – Could Ghosts Be Haunting These Cruise Ships and Cabins?
Ghosts Of The Cruise Ship Dead – Violent & Evil Cruise Ship Cabin Deaths
Ghosts at Sea – Choose A Haunting Cruise Experience
With the number of cruise ship deaths each year, the question is posed, could ghosts be haunting these cruise ships and their cruise ship cabins. From brutal, bloody murders, to passengers and crew found hanging by their necks in their cabin or on deck, speculation of haunting is something a select group of fearful people consider when deciding to book a cruise and choose their cabin. Others seek to sail aboard a cruise ship which may present a spooky aura to their cabin or common areas of the cruise ship. This select group of morbid reality fans seek to discover if a cruise ship is haunted by those who have passed away aboard.
What is a Haunting? – Wikipedia defines haunted places as, “A place where ghosts are reported is described as haunted, and often seen as being inhabited by spirits of deceased who may have been former residents or were familiar with the property. Supernatural activity inside homes is said to be mainly associated with violent or tragic events in the building’s past such as murder, accidental death, or suicide — sometimes in the recent or ancient past.”
If we apply this theory to Cruise Ship Deaths, we have actual events including deaths by drug and/or alcohol overdose, violent bloody murders aboard cruise ships, children murdered aboard cruise ships by their parent, those found hanging by neck aboard cruise ships, including those murdered aboard then tossed overboard and others who may be restless souls, walking the halls of the cruise ship at night.
