The seas are graced with the continual ghostly presence of the ship, the “Merry Maiden,” whose crew and passengers all mysteriously went missing fifty-seven years ago. Not one single sign of them have been found since. It is thought that the ship passed through some type of magnetic field that transported the passengers and crew to a different time and space.
As the ship continues its voyage, the lights come on at the exact same time every night and beautiful piano music along with laughter and various chatter can be heard coming from the ship. Everyone that boards the Merry Maiden cannot find one single soul aboard.
Because it is believed the passengers and crew are still aboard the ship, residing in a different time, the ship is left alone to cruise the seas and continue their “maiden” voyage.
Perhaps one day they will return the same way they left.
