The Queen Mary ship is not only one of California's most famous residents but she's 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.
