CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — 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.
