The ship itself
Prior to the events of Phantom Hourglass, the Ghost Ship had built up a reputation as a cursed ship that nobody has ever returned from.
At the beginning of Phantom Hourglass, the Ghost Ship appears within a ghostly fog. Tetra boards it and shrieks once she is out of sight of the others, prompting Link to follow her in an attempt to rescue her. However, he instead falls into the ocean and is taken to the World of the Ocean King. He then searches for a ship captain who will give him a ship to use to chase the Ghost Ship. As a result, he comes across Linebeck, who agrees to help him find the ship with the ulterior motive of finding the riches inside.
After Link has received a Bomb cannon for his boat, the Ghost Ship will soon reappear. Link attempts to follow it, but soon becomes lost in the fog. After traveling to Molida Island to find the path he must take, he is able to get away from it, although the fog does not dissipate until Link rescues Tetra from the ship.
Entrance to the Ghost Ship
After Link has obtained Leaf, the Spirit of Power, Neri, the Spirit of Wisdom, and has caused Ciela, the Spirit of Courage, to regain her memory, he once more sails into the fog. This time, he locates and boards the Ghost Ship.
Once inside the Ghost Ship, Link must reunite the four Cubus Sisters, who reveal themselves to be demons. They then challenge Link to a game of Dead Man's Volley, after which Link is given the Ghost Key to open the door leading to Tetra's whereabouts.
When Tetra is rescued, Oshus reveals himself to be the Ocean King, and explains that the Ghost Ship is actually a way for Bellum to get victims. He spread rumors of a great treasure within the ship to lure people there.
After Bellum is defeated within the Temple of the Ocean King, he takes Tetra again and takes control of the Ghost Ship. Here, Link sails alongside it, launching bombs at Bellum's eyes. Eventually, it sinks, and the final boss battle takes place on its remains. After the game's credits, Link and Tetra awaken on the mysteriously repaired Ghost Ship. They go back onto their own ship, and the Ghost Ship soon disappears without a trace.
