Ghost Ships: Unraveling Legends and Tales of Abandoned Vessels

Ghost Ships: Unraveling Legends and Tales of Abandoned Vessels

Ahoy, Current and Future Crew Members! 

As Specialists in the Cruise Industry, we get asked all the time by Canadians if cruising is safe. Let numbers talk: in 2024, approximately 36M passengers are expected to go on a cruise worldwide! Safe and exciting, being onboard a cruise ship is not only for travelers on vacation, it can be your next career move. PS Passport Stamps Recruitment helps Canadians to find a job onboard cruise ships, and demystify the crew lifestyle. And we have fun in between, sharing some Legends and Tales about the cruising world. In this edition of our Cruise Crew Newsletter, we're setting sail into the mysterious world of ghost ships—abandoned vessels that roam the seas without a crew. Join us as we delve into the legends and stories surrounding these eerie maritime mysteries. 

The Legend of the Flying Dutchman: Perhaps the most famous ghost ship of all, the Flying Dutchman is said to haunt the waters of the Cape of Good Hope, appearing as a spectral apparition with tattered sails and ghostly crew. Legend has it that the ship is cursed to sail the seas for eternity, unable to find rest until Judgment Day. It seems scary, but lots of cruise ships successfully sail through this beautiful part of the world in the coat of South Africa.

The Mary Celeste: One of the most puzzling maritime mysteries of all time, the Mary Celeste was discovered adrift in the Atlantic Ocean in 1872 with no sign of its crew. The ship was fully intact, with its cargo and personal belongings untouched, leading to speculation about what happened to the crew and why they abandoned the ship. Luckily, with the advanced technology cruise ships are equipped with, no vessels go missing any more.  

Modern-Day Ghost Ships: While tales of ghost ships may seem like relics of the past, modern-day instances of abandoned vessels still occur, albeit less frequently. From derelict cargo ships to abandoned fishing trawlers, these ghostly sightings continue to captivate the imagination and fuel speculation about their mysterious origins. They make a good story, but remember being on a ship is safe and a great way to explore the world.
