I just came from a family cruise, our group was over 20 family members, the ship was the Carnival Paradise.
I have been always interested on the paranormal, so a week before boarding I found this website while searching for overboard deaths etc. And to my
surprise I found that 1 person died on 2005 on the cruise I was going... Carnival Paradise
After a little searching online I found the room this girl died R149 just feets away from our rooms. I only told my wife about this since she is also
interested on the subject.
After we boarded the ship, between eating, running behind my two daughters 2 year old and 7 year old, eating again and family meetings for pictures
etc. I totally forgot about the Ashley Barnett and room R149. it wasn't until the third night while everyone was at dinner that I heard my cousin in
the other table talking about what happened to her boyfriend the night before, I only heard HE SAW A GHOST, I quickly went to their table and ask him
what he saw.
His story: (they are in their 20's)
He was sleeping with my cousin, when he suddenly woke up because he heard a banging in the wall, after he opened his eyes he saw a girl by the door,
he tough it was my cousin because it had a brown/blonde hair just like my cousin has, but when he realized my cousin was sleeping in the bed by his
side, he freak out, he stand up to see if it was the cleaning lady but girl banished. He went to the door and felt someone grabbing his leg. He
quickly turned the lights on and looked around when he was walking to the bed to wake up my cousin he looks at the mirror and saw a crew member in the
reflection behind him or at least is how he describes the guy, it had a vest like all the other employees on the ship and it looked from another
country, after that, the crew member banished.
After hearing this, I told him what I knew about the death of a young woman on the ship and that it looked similar to his girlfriend "my cousin" and
it died just feets away from his room. His face turned white after I told him this. I told them I knew a website that had a picture of the girl who
died and as soon we returned to Florida and got my Sprint signal back I was going to show him the picture of her. I never said the name to him and as
soon we were close to Florida and got my phone signal back, I took 3 pictures from the internet one of Ashley Barnett and 2 other girls. He choose
Ashley Barnett from the 3 pictures and he was freak out.
This is the picture I show him
After dinner when he told me his experience, I went to my room and got my camera and went to room R149 area where Ashley Barnett died, I took a few
pictures on the hallway but didn't see anything, but when passing by her room you can hear some banging in the wall, now I wonder if it has to do with
her or just normal ship sounds.
This is a layout on how close the rooms are in the ship.(blue are my family members rooms)
Just wanted to share this to see if anyone has similar experiences on other cruises or on this one "Paradise from Carnival"?
