Carolina haunts: The ghost ship at the Outer Banks
Posted: October 16, 2023 | Last updated: October 17, 2023
CAPE HATTERAS, N.C. (WNCT) — One of the biggest mysteries in North Carolina history is the ghost ship of the Outer Banks.
The Carroll A. Deering was returning home to Virginia from Barbados on January 29, 1921. As the ship passed the Cape Lookout Lightship, the lightship keeper reported that the crew was around and a crewman was talking about how the ship had lost its anchors. The ship and crew were last seen the next day, going by the SS Lake Elon near the Diamond Shoals Lightship.

On January 31, 1921, the ship was seen by the Cape Hatteras Coast Guard Station. The ship had run aground on the shoals. The ship’s deck was awash, sails set, and lifeboats were missing. The seas were heavy where the ship was. It took waiting until the wrecker Rescue arrived on February 4, to check out the ship.
“Like a ‘Flying Dutchman,’ the five-masted schooner Carroll A. Deering loomed through the mists about Diamond Shoals today, all sails set, but un-manned.” – The Washington Herald , February 3, 1921.
Personal belongings, navigation equipment, and the ship’s anchor were missing aboard. Weirdly, food was laid out like the crew was about to enjoy a meal. No one was on board.
“I believe they abandoned her after taking everything of value,” said Captain Ballance of the Cape Hatteras station , “and ran her up on the shoals intentionally….”
In March of the same year, the boat was towed and blown apart by dynamite.
Many theories have come from the abandoning of this ship. That the crew were taken by pirates, had all jumped aboard, and more.
Another puzzling thing that was added to the mix was Christopher Columbus Gray, a man from Buxton. He reported finding a note in a bottle that had washed up on the shore. The note said the crew had actually been captured by an oil-burning boat with pirates. The note turned out to be a hoax, forever leaving the abandonment of Deering a mystery.

The curfew definitely seems to be adhered to, but will it make any difference?
Very sad webcam images. Not a soul around.
“Will it make a difference?”
Can’t make the situation worse so it’s bound to help.
Very sad scenes. had to cancel twice last year; really hoping to make it back in 2021. Feel for all the businesses suffering. We will be back as soon as we can!
I watched the Ritz webcam about 12.00. Very quiet, everyone around appeared to be local
Still hoping we can go in November this year after cancelling 2020. Not booking anything for quite a while yet by the look of things. Keep safe everyone!
As long as people stand in bars at very close proximity to each other and with no masks on, the spread is likely to continue. What's the point of an 18:00 curfew and wearing masks outdoors when the bars stay open?
Legally, inside bars and restaurants there, masks should be worn and should only be removed when sitting down. Have you personally seen lots of people in bars standing close together and not wearing masks?
I visited in January 2020 and never thought for a minute that one year down the line we would face the situation we are facing at the moment .
I sadly lost out on two trips later in 2020 (both booked at the end of 2019) . Fingers crossed I shall be able to visit some time this year but am booking nothing at the moment as there is too much fragility and uncertainty.
I feel sorry for businesses who are losing out financially - some of whom may never re-open . Also sad to see so many taxis lined up and going nowhere.
As the saying goes 'The darkest hour comes just before the dawn' - so fingers crossed for better days.
Absolutely agree with your sentiments, Jamieboy, while also thinking of the thousands of businesses in the UK and elsewhere in a similar position.
Our next planned visit, again booked long ago, is September this year to use up the final two weeks of our 15-year timeshare apartment at the Pestana Carlton .
I will be vaccinated in the next couple of weeks and my partner hopefully in the summer. Just hope the rules and regulations in place in September will allow our visit.

Explosive gen v theory predicts how marie joins butcher's crew in the boys season 4.
This massive Gen V theory posits just how the show's blood-controlling protagonist Marie Moreau will join Butcher's crew in The Boys main series.
Warning: Spoilers for Gen V.
- Marie Moreau's unique blood-manipulating powers make her a perfect candidate for joining Butcher's crew in The Boys season 4.
- The Boys should already be aware of Marie's abilities, as her profile appeared in the files Hughie stole from the Red River Institute.
- Marie's future could lie with The Boys after her stint on Gen V, especially considering her knowledge of Vought's dark secrets and her potential to kill Homelander.
A massive Gen V theory predicts how Marie will join Butcher's crew in The Boys season 4. One of the spinoff show's protagonists, Marie Moreau (Jaz Sinclair) is a hemokinetic Supe with next-level abilities. Capable of manipulating blood, Marie is mistakenly identified as Golden Boy's (Patrick Schwarzenegger) killer, which, in part, lands her in Godolkin University's prestigious Top 5 Students lineup. Haunted by her tragic past, Marie is also one of Gen V 's few Supes who seem to be in the business of crime-fighting for the right reasons.
With Gen V repeating Starlight's The Boys season 1 story with Marie, there's no doubt that the young Supe is reminiscent of Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Hughie (Jack Quaid), and the other anti-Vought members of Billy Butcher's crew in The Boys . Even in its first few episodes, Gen V has boasted some fun cameos that tie into the larger franchise. With the series' intriguing crossover potential at the forefront, it seems more likely than not that Marie will meet up with The Boys ' vigilante group in season 4. Curiously, both shows have already teased how Marie and Butcher's crew might cross paths in the very near future.
Hughie & The Boys Should Know About Marie Already
By centering on Marie Moreau, Gen V pays off a brilliant deep-cut The Boys Easter egg , indicating Butcher's crew should already know about the teenage Supe. In The Boys season 3, Hughie steals the Red River Institute's entire file system. The Institute, it's revealed, is a Vought subsidiary-owned group home for orphaned Supe kids. Since Hughie's USB drive contains the files of every Supe at Red River, the crew should be well-aware of Gen V 's star. In fact, eagle-eyed viewers noted that Marie's profile and picture actually appear on-screen in the episode as Hughie scrolls through the files, making the connection undeniable.
Even if Hughie and the Boys didn't pay much attention to Marie's profile — or if they somehow missed just how incredibly useful her hemokinetic powers would be in a fight against Homelander and Vought — then Gen V is set to fix that oversight. In the spinoff series, Marie makes headlines almost immediately for supposedly killing the university's prodigy, the aptly named Golden Boy. As she delves further into Vought's secretive "Woods" project and the other conspiracies that surround Godolkin, there's a strong likelihood she'll pop up on the Boys' radar.
Gen V Has Confirmed Marie Is One Of The World's Most Powerful Supes
Marie Moreau's blood powers in Gen V are among the most formidable abilities in The Boys ' universe. Often, Marie uses her abilities to create projectiles or whips, but key episodes of the series have shown that she's capable of manipulating the blood inside someone else's body too. Marie's Supe-powers make her the perfect candidate for fighting someone with invulnerability — like Homelander. It only makes sense that the Boys would flick through the Red River files for Homelander-killing candidates.
For the most part, Gen V has only shown Marie manipulating blood that exists outside of her (or someone else's) body. After discovering her abilities mid-period, she generally slices open her palm and pulls blood from her own body. At other times, she's also capable of controlling the blood that flows from someone else's wound or open cut. Gen V episode 4, however, changes the game: it reveals that Marie can manipulate the blood inside someone else's body and, as she puts it, " explode" a part of their body. That said, Marie may be able to control the blood inside Homelander's body, making her one of the few Supes capable of killing The Seven's all-powerful leader.
Joining The Boys Could Be Marie Moreau's Perfect Future After Gen V
If Hughie and the Boys are already aware of Marie's rare, uniquely perfect powers, they might already be looking for her. Not much is known about The Boys season 4's plot, or how the finale of Gen V will impact its parent series. While Marie might stick it out at Godolkin or form her own vigilante squad with her powerful Gen V Supe classmates , it's clear she has no future with Vought; she's caused too much trouble and already knows too much about the company's dark underbelly to be molded into an easily-controlled member of The Seven.
It's also possible Marie Moreau will join up with the Boys after her stint on Gen V . If Hughie and the others keyed into her Red River profile, it's even possible a member of the Boys will turn up at the end of Gen V to recruit Marie. Of course, the Boys have tons to contend with in the upcoming season. For starters, it's finally time to hate Billy Butcher : his selfish actions and unhinged Temp-V usage is derailing the Boys' comradery. Thankfully, Grace Mallory (Laila Robins), the founder of the Boys, seems to be out of retirement, which means Marie might join The Boys ' version of Amanda Waller.
Marie Moreau's The Boys Connection Might Explain Her "Benefactor"
In Gen V episode 5, Shetty (Shelley Conn), the antagonistic dean of Godolkin University, tells Dr. Cardosa (Marco Pigossi) that Marie has an enigmatic and influential " benefactor, " which makes her off-limits for any Supe experimentation. Several The Boys characters could be Marie's mysterious Gen V " benefactor, " from Vought's new CEO Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie) to former CEO Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito) to presidential candidate Robert Singer (Jim Beaver). Even Dean Shetty herself could be the mystery benefactor. While the benefactor being someone within Vought or the White House makes the most sense, it could also be Starlight or Mallory in an effort to bring Marie to their side.
Hughie's Red River Files Can Bring Marie Into The Boys Season 4
When Marie's picture and name flashed on the screen during Hughie's exploration of the Red River Institute's database, it was a cameo for the most observant of fans. Of course, the moment did more than just set up Gen V well ahead of its release. The Boys has always been an intricately plotted series, so it's hard to imagine the show would feature Marie at random. Despite all of Gen V 's cameos and references to its parent series, it remains largely separate from the original series. If The Boys season 4 is looking for a way to bring Marie over from Gen V , the series has already telegraphed it perfectly with Hughie's stolen Red River Institute files.
What is Hamas, and why did it attack Israel now?
An earlier version of this article incorrectly described Hamas’s aim as the creation of a Palestinian state along the borders that existed before the 1967 war. Hamas does not recognize the existence of Israel and is committed to replacing it through armed struggle with a Palestinian state stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River. In addition, an earlier version of this article inaccurately characterized Qatar's relationship with Hamas. Qatar works with Hamas to provide humanitarian assistance to civilians in the Gaza Strip, but it does not directly support the group. The article has been corrected.
Israel declared war against Hamas on Sunday, following a surprise attack by the Palestinian militant group based in Gaza that included the taking of civilian hostages at a music festival, where at least 260 bodies have been recovered. Israeli security forces, caught off guard, have pounded the Gaza Strip with retaliatory strikes, and U.S. officials said they expect Israel to soon launch a ground incursion into the enclave as violence escalates in the conflict-ridden region.
Israel is searching for more than 100 hostages, including Americans, believed to have been taken to Gaza by Hamas. President Biden labeled the actions of Hamas as “beyond the pale” in a speech Wednesday.
Since winning legislative elections in 2006, Hamas has repeatedly attacked Israel with rockets and mortars, emerging as a defiant adversary. Israel has retaliated with its superior firepower and a punishing blockade, restricting imports and the movement of civilians in a strategy of collective punishment. The blockade and recurring Israeli strikes have contributed to Gaza’s poor infrastructure and living conditions. Israel declared a full siege of the enclave on Monday, with Defense Minister Yoav Gallant promising “no electricity, no food, no fuel” and calling Hamas militants “savages.”
The Gaza Strip and its history, explained
Here’s what to know about Hamas and the latest violence .
President Biden will visit Israel on Wednesday to show solidarity “in the face of Hamas’s brutal terrorist attack ” before traveling to Jordan to discuss Gaza’s humanitarian crisis . Follow the latest news and live updates .
Hostages: Israeli officials say Hamas militants abducted about 200 hostages in a highly organized attack on Israel . Among those abducted from their homes or seized from a music festival are a mother, her two young daughters , a restaurant manager and a DJ. Here’s what we know about the hostages taken from Israel .
Israeli-Palestinian conflict: Here is a timeline of the decades-old conflict and what to know about the more recent violence in Israel and Gaza . The Hamas -controlled Gaza Strip has a complicated history , and its rulers have long been at odds with the Palestinian Authority , the U.S.-backed government in the West Bank.
Americans killed: At least 30 U.S. citizens have been killed. Here’s what we know about how the United States is getting involved in the Israel-Gaza war and how other foreign nationals were affected . This is how world leaders are reacting to the war .
Star Wars Rebels: Every Ghost Crew Member, Ranked
Rebels' Ghost Crew boasts some of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars franchise. Here's where each member ranks.
Star Wars is a long-running multimedia franchise that has managed to go from a simple science fiction franchise with a cult-following to a multi-million dollar franchise now owned by Disney. Beginning with the original trilogy of films, the Star Wars franchise has spawned a number of popular films and TV shows. From additions to the film franchise like Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace to, most recently, the brand-new show Obi-Wan Kenobi set between the prequels and the originals. That said, there are also a number of animated shows that have been created to gain the interest of a younger audience. One of said shows is Star Wars Rebels .
Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope , Rebels revolves around the crew of the starship Ghost as they take a stand against the Empire. With a mere six members aboard, the Ghost crew seems to have a great impact on not only the growing Rebellion movement, but on the Empire as a whole, managing to flip a member of the Empire into a rebel spy. Though Rebels has ended, some characters are rumored to appear in the live-action Ahsoka series. Until then, here's Ghost Crew member on Star Wars Rebels , ranked.
Chopper is the sassy droid companion on the Ghost crew. While Chopper may appear to be just another droid like R2 and R4, what sets him apart physically is his tiny little hands. Chopper also has the tendency to not want to help people, the opposite of most droids, considering droids are built to serve. Chopper served during The Clone Wars and due to lack of maintenance and just overall old age of Chopper, he is not the droid he once was. His clumsiness also makes for a great deal of Jar Jar Binks-like comic relief. Despite his faults, Chopper stayed loyal, remaining at Hera's side until the very end, even earning himself a cameo, per Screen Rant , in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story .

5 Garazeb "Zeb" Orrellios
An often forgotten member of the Ghost crew, Garazeb AKA Zeb's character is based on the original character design of Chewbacca. Serving as the Ghost's co-pilot, Zeb is a formidable foe and is responsible for Agent Kallus turning away from the Empire and becoming a spy for the Rebellion. While much of Zeb and his people's hardships were at the center of the plot in the first two seasons of Rebels, Zeb's character is largely left untouched in the later seasons of the series. It's unclear whether Zeb will make any other appearances in the franchise, but it's possible that DIsney execs may want to explore more about his character, his capabilities, and the rich history of his people.
4 Ezra Bridger
Ezra has managed to capture the attention of every audience member. Due to the fact that he was not raised as a Jedi, Ezra struggles with his training, particularly not understanding why he must put his emotions aside. For this reason, Ezra is extra tempted by the Dark Side and struggles to resist the temptations placed in front of him, especially considering that the power he could gain from the Dark Side could help him overthrow the Empire. This led to the famous battle between Kanan and Darth Maul as they fought over who would become Ezra's master. We will most likely see Ezra make his live-action debut in the Ahsoka series, if Ahsoka ever does actually find him.
3 Caleb Dume / Kanan Jarrus
Kanan Jarrus, previously known as Caleb Dume, serves as the mentor and father-figure character on the Ghost crew, but he is more than just a wise old man. Kanan has a long history of perseverance, narrowly surviving Order 66 and going into hiding to evade capture from the inquisitors, changing his name to Kanan Jarrus. Kanan winds up taking Ezra under his wing, showing a great deal of leniency in his teachings, knowing that not all the rules in the Jedi Code make sense, especially the 'no attachment' rule. Kanan is a true Jedi to look up to as he has suffered unimaginable losses without succumbing to the temptation of the Dark Side.

2 Sabine Wren
Sabine is a natural-born Mandalorian that struck a chord with Rebels fans everywhere for her alternative appearance. During her time serving for the Empire, Sabine developed a weapon capable of disintegrating organic matter, showcasing her talent as an engineer. This weapon was used to force civilians into submission towards the Empire. Despite initially running from her mistakes, Sabine managed to fight off her inner conflict and rescue her clan from the Empire. At the end of the series, Sabine manages to bring a whole new level of security to her people before joining Ahsoka in her search for Ezra. Sabine is one of the few characters confirmed for the upcoming Ahsoka series; she will be played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo.
1 Hera Syndulla
Topping our list is the Twi'lek freedom fighter Hera Syndulla. Pilot and leader of the Ghost Crew, Hera is responsible for setting many of the events in motion that became the beginnings of the Rebel Alliance. Without Hera, much of the Rebellion would not have grown to become what it was, even earning the respect of the Grand Admiral Thrawn. Despite her ability to keep a cool head in any situation thrown her way, Hera still manages to harbor personal feelings towards her crew-mates. Hera's toughness is only emphasized by the fact that she fought a great many battles while pregnant with Kanan's child.

Review of funchal.
The 1961-built MV Funchal cruise ship was designed by Rogerio d'Oliveira (Portuguese naval engineer) and until 2021 was operated by the company Portuscale Cruises. Previously, the boat was owned by one of the richest families in the Azores.
The vessel (IMO number 5124162) is currently Portugal/Madeira- flagged (MMSI 255971000) and registered in Funchal .
History - construction and ownership
In 2013, Rui Alegre (Portuguese entrepreneur) bought the boat from Classic International Cruises, along with three other ships - Princess Danae (Lisboa) , Athena (Azores/Astoria) and Arion (Porto) . With these liners, he established the company Portuscale Cruises ( Lisbon -based)
Following the acquisition, MS Funchal was extensively drydock-refurbished in Lisbon (at Naval Rocha shipyards) and upgraded to a 4-star passenger vessel at the cost of nearly EUR 10 million. The hull was repainted black (its original color).
MS Funchal is a classic-design ocean liner, and sadly - among the last remaining cruise ships of the once-great fleet of Portuguese passenger ships. The vessel has been operated by the Portuscale cruise line since the beginning of 2013. The ship was constructed in 1961, under the guidance of the naval engineer Rogerio d'Oliveira. Its features include air-conditioning, full stabilization, three lifts, piano bar, main show lounge, Lido bar, club room, library, card room, shops. The Funchal ship also served as a presidential yacht owned by one of the wealthiest families in the Azores.
In August 2013, MV Funchal left the drydock to arrive on August 27 in Gothenburg (Sweden) , starting a new career. However, on August 28, the ship was not released from Goteborg's harbor due to security issues (officially denied by Portuscale Cruises). On September 2, 2013, the issues were resolved, certifications granted, and the ship left Port Goteborg heading to Scotland.
On December 5, 2018, via bank auction, the vessel was sold (for EUR 3,91 million / USD 4,45 million). This news also meant that the ship will not be scrapped. Soon was reported that the liner was acquired by the Liverpool hotel operator Signature Living to start a new life as a hotel ship in Central London . At the auction, Signature Living was represented by QPS Marine Ships (Florida USA-based cruise vessel purchase finance firm). In the auction were represented all 4 bidders. Signature Living via QPS Marine Ships negotiated for nearly 2 years with the bankruptcy administrator for purchasing the vessel. QPS Marine Ships also acted as a consultant in the liner's repositioning and management during the conversion project (to a hotel ship).
In the period 2015-2018, both Portuscale Cruises ships (Funchal and Porto) were laid up at Port Lisbon. The company's only operational ship (Azores) was chartered to CMV-Cruise and Maritime Voyages and renamed Astoria .
In 2019, the cruise liner received GBP 4 million drydock refit and refurbishment . New amenities following the refurb include a dedicated concierge team (dedicated to timetable service at onboard parties) and exclusive entertainment - El Teatro's (fiesta), Champagne Charlies Brunch At Sea (party), world-famous DJs, theatrical performances, Alma De Cuba (carnival-style dance performers), percussionists.
You can read the cruise ship's detailed history in its Wiki section .
Decks and Cabins
MS Funchal ship accommodates just 524 passengers and has updated Suites, Mini-Suites, Staterooms and Cabins. All accommodations are beautifully fitted out and contain the latest facilities.
Following drydock 2019, the boat now has max capacity 632 berths. Room options include ocean views, double and single cabins, one Presidential Suite (capacity 4 passengers). The largest combo cabins accommodate 16 passengers and feature a private sundeck (with an outdoor Jacuzzi) and butler-served breakfast.
The boat has 7 passenger decks , of which 6 are passenger-accessible and with cabins.
Shipboard facilities and activities
MV Funchal offers her passengers two fine Dining Rooms located on Azores Deck. One of these is The Coimbra, an intimate restaurant located on the starboard side, aft of the Main Lobby. The spacious Lisboa stretches right across the liner and is accessible from the aft Lobby or amidships stairwell and lift.
What is significant in MS Funchal is its design - a combination of a beautiful ocean liner and fascinating interior. The beautiful shape of this classic cruise liner offers a yacht-like atmosphere to its passengers. Funchal's crew members are highly trained and dedicated to their work. Most of them are Portuguese and have been sailing with the ship for more than 20 years. Passengers are loyal and come back on board the ship again and again.
The features of Funchal include stabilization, three lifts, air-conditioning, a Main Show Lounge called Ilha Verde, Porto Bar (piano bar), Lido Bar, Excursion Office, Medical Centre, Reception with exchange facilities, Club Room, Casino, Card Room, Library, Teen Room, Internet Cafe, Gym, Wellness & Beauty Center, Sauna or Hammam, Photographer & PhotoShop, Shopping Arcade, Laundry and Internet Service.
Activities for young travelers on offer include a treasure hunt, painting, collage, and fun at the Teen Room, specifically intended for adults and teens interactions. Following a sophisticated dinner at Coimbra or Lisboa restaurant, passengers can have a fine coffee while listening to live piano music at Porto Bar or enjoy Havana Bar while watching the show performed by international casts of musicians, singers and dancers.
Cellar, tastings, workshops, and contests help passengers develop and further their knowledge of wine. The cruise line offers a wide choice of nectars in the cellar, produced in well-renowned wineries from recognized castes by popular winemakers.
MV Funchal was an example of a classic ocean liner cruising around the world. Ship's routes and destinations included South America, Arctic Circle, Norwegian Fjords, Atlantic Islands, Mediterranean, Black Sea, Red Sea, Australia-New Zealand, Far East Asia.
In late-December 2018, the new shipowner Signature Living revealed an ambitious refurbishment project for converting the cruise liner into a luxury party hotel ship. The vessel will be homeported in Liverpool , from where will be operated roundtrip cruises to popular Spanish port destinations in the Mediterranean, including Ibiza Town , Palma (Mallorca Island) , Malaga , Puerto Banus (Marbella) . The ship's Maiden Voyage was planned for Spring 2020. The onboard experience features gourmet dining and superior bar service (via a partnership with Alma De Cuba), 5-star hotel rooms and amenities, live entertainment and beach-style deck parties (with guest BBQs and DJ performances).

MS Funchal was designed in Portugal but originally it was hoped by the Portuguese that it would be constructed in Portugal. However, in due course, the shipbuilding contract was given to Elsinore Shipyards (Helsingor, Denmark) for the reason they offered to build the ship for about GBP 2 million - excellent value for the time and far better than the Portuguese were able to offer.
Vessel's keel was laid in July 1960. The entire project came under the guidance of Portuguese naval engineer Rogerio d'Oliveira. The vessel was launched (floated out from drydock) on February 10, 1961. The powerplant was based on two Parsons Steam Turbines, driving double reduction gear and two screws.
On October 10, 1961, during sea trials, the ship managed a top speed of 23 knots (43 kph / 27 mph), with a designed service speed of 20 knots (37 kph / 23 mph). However, later the boilers became a problem and the powerplant was re-engined to diesel engines. An interesting fact is that the vessel was the largest constructed in Helsingor, as well as the largest passenger ship built in Denmark since WW2 (1939-1945).
Just like most passenger liners of its time, the ship carried cargo in 3 holds (1 aft, 2 forward). Among the cargoes were cars, fruits, general cargo, also mail. The ship had all 4 refrigerated compartments. Because of the ship's long design, it always looked bigger than its actual size (153 m). The cruise ship was initially designed with max passenger capacity 400, accommodated in 3 classes - 80 (First-Class), 156 (Tourist-A) and 164 (Tourist-B). Tourist-A and First Class areas were on Promenade Deck, while Tourist-B lounge was aft on B-Deck. The liner featured a spiral staircase (of polished metal and glass) held up by a 4-deck high polished timber column.
The beautifully designed liner was delivered on October 19, 1961, in Lisbon , from where left off the inaugural cruise (maiden voyage) to St Michael’s Island (aka Fort Island / Isle of Man ) and Madeira , departing from Lisbon on November 4, 1961. SS Funchal continued the Madeira service until 1966. Soon cruises were extended to Canary Islands (through 1969) operated with roundtrip Southampton departures to Tenerife in October-November.
On various occasions, the cruise ship was state-chartered as Presidential Yacht. In February 1968, Portugal's President cruised to the islands Azores, Madeira, Cape Verde, Guiney and Brazil on SS Funchal. In 1972, he cruised to Rio de Janeiro to participate in Brazil's 150th-anniversary celebrations. During the cruise, Funchal suffered boiler problems. Certain repairs were made at sea (during the Transatlantic crossing from Portugal) and further repairs were made in Rio. After several roundtrips from Lisbon, the vessel was drydocked in Amsterdam where the steam turbines were removed and replaced with two “Werkspoor” diesel engines (9-cylinder, combined power output 7,46 MW). During the 8-months long drydock refit , a new top-deck section was also added (forward of the funnel) and the aft decks were extended. Following the refi were scheduled sea trails (May 1973) and the ship managed a max speed 18 knots (33 kph) and service speed 16 knots (30 kph). The reconstructed liner was delivered in June, when did several cruises from homeports Zeebrugge (Belgium) and Dover (England) to Canaries (Tenerife), Madeira and Cape Verde Islands .
In December 1973, the cruise ship was repositioned to Rio de Janeiro for cruises along South America's coast. In 1976, the Greek shipping magnate George Potamianos (whose family founded Epirotiki Line) chartered Funchal for a series of private cruises. In 1985, he decided to buy the liner for his Arcalia Shipping Company Ltd. With this was founded Classic International Cruises (1985-2012 defunct) via “Great Warwick Inc” (a joint venture between two families - Potamianos (Lisbon-based) and Fritidskryss (Sweden). The vessel was purchased from its original Portuguese shipowner Cia Portuguesa de Transportes Maritimos (CPTM) liquidated in 1985.
Funchal was re- flagged from Madeira to Panama, and manned by Portuguese and Swedish crew. For Classic International Cruises, during summer the ship was homeported in Harwich , while the winter months was cruising in South America leaving from Brazilian ports.
The 1989-1990 drydock refit also added two fully enclosed tender boats. In 1993, Azores Deck (aft) was extended to a Lido Deck (with ample sunbathing area). Boat Deck (aft) was also extended. In 1997, the cruise ship was refitted to comply with IMO's SOLAS regulations, which also required the replacement of all timbers with fire retardant materials. The spiral staircase was partially enclosed, 4 lifeboats were removed (midship) and replaced by the new tenders. The ship was again re-flagged to Madeira.
In 2004, Funchal was repositioned from Europe to Australia (Harwich to Fremantle-Perth . During drydock 2010, the ship was extensively refurbished and new cabins were added. Several Promenade Deck staterooms were removed to making room for Club Lounge. In 2011 the ship returned to Lisbon for a massive refit (including internal rebuilding) to ensure at least 20+ more years of service. By April 2012, all works were stopped (with less than 10% completion) after George Petros Potamianos died. The company Classic International Cruises was liquidated in December 2012.
In early-2013, Portuguese hotel and resort entrepreneur Rui Alegre purchased MV Funchal together with 3 other ships, but only Funchal kept its name. The new company (Portuscale Cruises) invested USD 13 million in Funchal's rebuilding (in Lisbon) in order to pass the updated SOLAS regulations.
In late-October 2019, the vessel was towed to Liverpool . According to Signature Living's latest plans, the liner will not operate cruises but instead will be permanently docked/berthed in the UK and serving as "party hotel ship".

Top 13 places in Russia where you may face a ghost
1. Kusovnikov House in Moscow
In the 19 th century house № 17 on Myasnitskaya street in central Moscow was inhabited by a rich, but very greedy couple – Pyotr and Sofya Kusovnikov, who scrimped on almost everything. Extremely suspicious, they used to hide money from their servants in different places. Once they hid some in the fireplace, but the janitor accidentally burned it when lighting the fire. When she found out, Sofya died instantly of a broken heart, her husband passed away a little later. Since then, the ghost of a hunched old man in a coat has routinely appeared on the street near the house – this is Pyotr Kusovnikov mourning his lost money.
2. Sokol metro station
During WWI, not far from the modern Sokol station of the Moscow metro, a cemetery for fallen soldiers was located. In 1918, mass executions of White officers and priests by the Reds were held there. All this led to the appearance of ghosts in the dark tunnels of the station. Early in the morning diaphanous figures with festering wounds can be seen there.
3. St. Michael’s Castle in St. Petersburg
This castle was a royal residence built by order of Tsar Paul I. On March 21, 1801, he was killed there by a group of conspirators. It is considered that the restless spirit of the tsar was unable to leave the castle. It appears there in the corridors with a burning candle in its hand.
4. Znamenskaya Tower in Yaroslavl
During the Civil War in Russia (1917-1922), a group of White troops held positions in the Volkovsky theater in Yaroslavl. The Red commissar in command of the siege promised to spare their lives. However, he lied and all the Whites were executed at the Znamenskaya Tower. Since then, the ghost of the commissar who didn’t keep his promise has been seen at the place of his crime.
5. Igumnov House in Moscow
The house at 43 Bolshaya Yakimanka Street in Moscow, also known as “Igumnov House,” serves today as the residence of the French ambassador. It was built at the request of the industrialist Nikolay Igumnov in the late 19 th century. He settled his young mistress here, but one day caught her with a lover. The lover was kicked out, but the girl was never seen again. It is believed that the outraged Igumnov bricked her up in a wall. During Soviet times, people often saw the ghost of a young girl walking through the walls with deep, plaintive sighs.
6. House of Rasputin in St. Petersburg
The flat on the second floor at 64 Gorokhovaya street in St. Petersburg is today a usual residential apartment. However, in the early 20th century it was home to one of the most mystical figures in Russian history – Grigory Rasputin. His ghost sometimes appears here, scaring inhabitants with its clunking steps and grunting in dark corners.
7. House on the Embankment
This house at 2 Serafimovicha Street, simply known as “House on Embankment,” is among the most famous in the Russian capital, known as the place of residence for the Soviet crème de la crème : writers, artists, actors, generals, athletes. However, it also has a dark history. During the Great Purge, a campaign of political repressions in the USSR, dozens of the house’s inhabitants were arrested and executed. Today, the house is full of the ghosts of those victims, who sometimes appear in their old dwelling place.
8. Tower of the old hospital in Ryazan
Among the high-rise modern buildings at 15 Gorky Street in Ryazan is an old tower – all that remains of the old hospital. At night, a lonely dark figure can be seen walking in this tower. This is the ghost of Alexander Smitten, who administered the hospital more than a century ago.
9. Griboyedov Canal in St. Petersburg
During a misty night in March, one can see the ghost of a young girl near the Griboyedov Canal in St. Petersburg. Her face is blue because of asphyxiation, and there is a big red mark on her neck caused by a rope. This is famous revolutionary Sophia Perovskaya, who assassinated Tsar Alexander II and was hanged for her deed. To meet this ghost is a bad omen, and can cost nocturnal pedestrians their lives.
10. Nizhny Novgorod Kremlin
There is a legend that when the Kremlin in Nizhny Novgorod was being built, the constructors were unable to finish one of the towers. It kept falling down. In the end, they decided to make a sacrifice and to build the tower on the blood of the first person who passed by. It happened to be a pregnant woman hurrying to the river for water. She was seized and bricked up in the tower alive. The ghost of a pale woman holding a baby has appeared near this place ever since.
11. Oldenburg Palace near Voronezh
Built in the late 19th century, the palace belonged to Princess Eugenia of Leuchtenberg. Today her ghost rises from the deep casemates of the palace to wander through its rooms and corridors. There is also another ghost there, much older — the ghost of a young peasant girl. It is even said that Princess Eugenia saw it when she was alive.
12. Stalin’s country house near Sochi
Stalin’s ghost can be seen at his country house, located today within the Green Groove hotel near Sochi. The “father of the nations” walks in his white jacket, smoking his trademark pipe.
13. Psychiatric hospital near Nizhny Novgorod
Near the modern psychiatric hospital in the village of Lyakhovo near Nizhny Novgorod, one can see an abandoned old building. Several dozen years ago a young girl hanged herself there because of unrequited love. At night it is possible to see a white silhouette and hear the moaning and cries of the “love-stricken schoolgirl” as the locals call her.
And if you want to see a UFO, here are several places in Russia where you will have a chance.

Gwrych Castle website says that "Real life ghost encounters by visitors to Gwrych Castle are commonplace".
One castle worker said: “A few people have claimed to have seen a floating woman in white.
“Ghost-hunters have also claimed to have felt the presence of her and gamekeepers. We think the Countess might be unhappy as her husband stripped the castle of valuables.
"They certainly didn’t have a happy marriage.”
Some locals also believe that the spirit of a servant girl who died falling off a horse haunts the land.
Others have said ghosts of former caretakers have been seen around the 200-year-old castle, which boasts 250 acres.

Ghostly Crew is a Field Order Reward found exclusively on the map Mutiny . When activated, the player is escorted by two ethereal ghost pirates, who kill any enemy they see.
One of the pirates utilizes akimbo flintlock pistols, while the other has a hook that acts as a melee weapon.
The ghosts themselves do not have a lot of health, so they can be particularly easy to kill if one reacts quick enough. However, considering the two ghosts escort the enemy player, a single player could easily be picked off by the other pirate or the enemy player that the ghosts follow. It is best to tackle the pirates as a group, as there's essentially 3 enemies to take out. As well, due to their close range weaponry, it is easier to just pick them off using a Light Machine Gun or a Sniper Rifle .
