A Little Bit Of History

RMS Queen Mary: The Queen Ship Of All Ghost Stories

“Today we come to the happy task of sending on her way the stateliest ship now in being. It has been the nation’s will that she should be completed, and today we can send her forth no longer a number on the books, but a ship with a name in the world, alive with beauty, energy, and strength! May her life among great waters spread friendship among the nations!”

The Queen Mary’s construction and launching were nothing short of amazing, and her tale is full of grandeur, elegance, and history. The Queen Mary was destined to stand in a class by herself from the start of her construction in 1930 in Clydebank, Scotland. Cunard Line spared no expense when constructing the Queen Mary, which was initially known as task #534, despite experiencing economic problems during the Great Depression, which delayed the construction of the ship for a number of years.

The Queen Mary set sail on its inaugural journey from Southampton, England, on May 27, 1936. She had a big ballroom, a squash court, five dining rooms and lounges, two cocktail bars, and swimming pools, as well as a modest hospital.

The Queen Mary had established a new standard for transatlantic travel, which the wealthy and distinguished saw as the only manner of travel fit for a civilization. She rapidly captured the public’s hearts and imagination on both sides of the Atlantic by encapsulating the essence of a time renowned for its style, class, and grace.

The Queen Mary, a renowned Southern California attraction, hotel, and site for special events, has never enjoyed greater popularity since she stopped operating as an operational liner in 1967. Although the ship carried about 2.2 million passengers during peacetime and 810,000 soldiers during World War II, it is believed that 50 million visitors have come to visit Long Beach.

The famous English clairvoyant Lady Mable Fortiscue-Harrison made the following prediction on the day the ship was launched in 1934: “The Queen Mary will know her greatest fame and popularity when she never sails another mile or carries another fare-paying passenger.” A striking realization!

A Luxurious Haunted Hotel

RMS Queen Mary: The Queen Ship Of All Ghost Stories

It’s not surprising that the Queen Mary has been named one of Time magazine’s Top 10 Most Haunted Places in America given its diverse and fascinating past. Some haunted locations include the boiler room and the infamous room B340.

Many crew members and guests have experienced paranormal occurrences, such as hearing random knocks or seeing two women in the pool area which is, in fact, a room where two women drowned many years ago.

Room B340

Long before the Queen Mary became a hotel, this stateroom was a concern. The circumstances surrounding the death of Walter J. Adamson, a third-class British traveler who died there in 1948, are unknown. According to a woman who was staying at the hotel in 1966, the bed coverings were removed from her in the middle of the night, and she awoke to find a man standing at the foot of her bed. She yelled and rang the steward, but the man seemed to have disappeared into thin air.

Years later, visitors who stayed in the bedroom have related hearing a knock on the door in the middle of the night and experiencing the lights turning on in the bathroom. Even the hotel maids began to gripe about how they would discover the bathroom water running even when no one had been in the room for days, and one said that the bed coverings had been removed as soon as she had placed them on.

The room was closed for 30 years until it reopened and now offers guests a truly supernatural experience during their stay at the hotel.

The year was 1989 and two women had been assigned to clean this lounge area for a VIP reception. When they entered the space, they discovered a passenger silently sitting on a chair in the center of the dance floor. A third worker entered the room and noticed the passenger continuously staring, so she asked the person to stop.  As they called security’s assistance, all three women claimed to have witnessed the person disappear right in front of them.

The First Class Swimming Pool

Back in the day, the first-class swimming pool was a luxurious room adorned with an illuminated fountain, mother-of-pearl ceilings, and intricate mosaic tiles. Nowadays, due to California code issues, the pool is no longer in use, but that doesn’t stop it from becoming one of the ship’s hubs for paranormal activity.

People have claimed to have seen a variety of ghosts at this location, including a young woman in a tennis skirt who vanished behind a pillar while walking downstairs, a woman in an old wedding gown who appeared next to the pool with a young boy in a suit, and a cloud of steam that materialized out of nowhere alongside a young girl in a blue and white dress, before instantly dissipating.
