Our readers have endured chilling witching-hour run-ins with drunken ghost passengers, been nearly swept out to sea by gale-force winds and massive sea swells, and witnessed the demonic powers of the Caribbean sun. The good news? Despite the moments of terror, their love of cruising continues undeterred.
So, just in time for Halloween, we thought we'd highlight a few of the most chilling tales.
Lock all doors and windows, then click on the photo above to read about some onboard horror stories (insert, in ghoulish voice, "if you dare"). And if you have your own harrowing tale from a cruise, post it on the message boards or in the comments below.
