Found adrift off the coast of Portugal in 1872, the Mary Celeste contained all her cargo and supplies, but no crew.
Bound for Italy from New York, the circumstances of the crew’s departure remain a mystery to this day. Speculations have ranged from the absurd (aliens and hauntings) to the more likely (mutiny and voluntary abandonment due to fear of explosion). With a pump taken apart and three feet of water in the hull, the crew most likely abandoned ship for fear of sinking.
