Scary Places 3 :: The Queen Mary Luxury Liner - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

The Queen Mary ship is not only one of Californias most famous residents but shes also the spookiest. This luxury liner is said to be haunted by ghosts who cry at night, swim in the empty pool and dance alone.

The RMS Queen Mary was at one time one of the largest passenger boats in the world. Between 1936 and 1967, the Queen Mary ferried people from England to the United States. During WWII, the Queen Mary moonlighted as a troopship, carrying troops from Australia and New Zealand to the United Kingdom. In addition to its prestigious history, the Queen Mary is also known for it's unexplained past. For decades people have made reports of paranormal activity on board this Californian tourist attraction. Read on to hear about the spine-chilling happenings on this spooky ship!

RMS Queen Mary - Spooky Encounters

  • An 18 year-old man was crushed to death during a routine watertight door drill on July 10, 1966. He was crushed in doorway number 13 in the engine room. Several sightings of a ghost fitting this man's description have been reported by visitors and crew members. They describe seeing a young bearded man in blue coveralls walking around. When he gets near door number 13 he usually disappears.
  • Many ghosts have been seen in or near the First-Class swimming pool. Visitors have seen women dressed in old-fashioned bathing suits wandering the decks near the pool, heard splashing and seen a trail of wet footprints from the deck to the changing room. The spooky thing is, the pool hasn't been used in decades! Many paranormal experts believe the Queen Mary swimming pool is the ship's vortex - a place for ghosts to pass from the other side into the living world.
  • The Queen's Salon (previously the First-Class lounge) is another place where many ghost sightings have occurred. A beautiful young woman, dressed in a fancy white evening gown, is often seen dancing by herself in the shadows.
  • Leigh Travers Smith died a few hours after being born on the RMS Queen Mary. Now, late at night, a baby's cry can be heard coming from the room that used to be the Third-Class children's playroom!

RMS Queen Mary - Enter At Your Own Risk

Are you brave enough to investigate these ghostly stories yourself? Check out a ghost on the Queen Mary, head to Long Beach, California. She's permanently docked at the 55-acre Queen Mary Seaport. She offers the 365 stateroom, Hotel Queen Mary, the Queen's Marketplace and a shopping and dining area. Don't forget to bring your camera in case you see some ghostly sights.

1I know some woods nearby where I stayed with my friends. Well, apparently someone had been killed on the railroad track behind the woods. We stayed up till about 3:30 in the morning to see if anything would happen. Sure enough some disfigured shape came running out of the woods. Now, every Halloween he or she comes out from the dead. Hopefully I am not here to see it again.

Dear Diary,  (2-20-17) So today was crazy after arguing with the fact that i should write this in a real diary but then remembering that my handwriting is terrible.     Okay look, just call me crazy but I saved the new girl in our class. I hate new girls in school. I was one which means I hate myself a couple years ago. That's..actually surprisingly accurate. Not that I'm a bully or anything whatsoever, but she always is automaticlly popular declared by the populist of popular in out class, Victoria. Or Tori for a brief yet still so disgusting I can smell her name from here period. Okay, I think we might be becoming friends after I saved her. You might be thinking, Audrey, just tell us how you saved her! Shut up, okay! I'm getting to that. Anyways, as Victoria is officially awesome, (inflicted by the awesomeness)  she hangs out with another girl which makes Alexei all mad and the whole thing blows up until I'm in the middle. (face palm) And I did some magic talk and problem solved. NOT! Now she says that I'm her friend and I do something crazy for her. She likes a boy in our class, Eddie. He likes Alexei, Alexei likes him. And you guess what i did. MAGIC! Anyways, now she owes me two favors. And that'll be getting me out of my delehma  right now by giving me stomach medicine. Or nose medicine. Either sounds heavenly.

In my opinion, cutting is not a cry for attention. The person's emotional pain creates some kind of need to feel physical pain, even if this person is not aware of that while doing it. However, on the last couple of years, cutting started to get popular, making some people think that if they cut themselves they will get more attention, which, also in my opinion, is an act of "desperation" and an actual need for attention or friendly advises .   :nerd  :)
