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!

I 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.

I lived in this small town in this small apartment and one night I awoke to hear piano noises. I got a little scared and went to my mom and dad's room.
