Rent A Bunk On A Battleship During Pope Francis’ Philadelphia Visit

CAMDEN, N.J. — Visitors looking for a place to stay during Pope Francis’ trip to Philadelphia have an unusual option.

The Battleship New Jersey is offering 400 bunks for $75 per person for a night between Sept. 22 and Sept. 26. Those are the same bunks where sailors slept.

The price includes breakfast and dinner. Guests also will get a tour of the museum and a ride in a flight simulator.

But there are no showers available.

The ship is docked in Camden, across the river from Philadelphia and less than a mile from the Ben Franklin Bridge. The bridge will be closed to traffic, but open to pedestrians and bicyclists during the pope’s visit.

The battleship was launched on the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
