Many people (of my generation and back) have heard of the ship RMS Queen Mary. At one time, she sailed the ocean, carrying her cruise passengers as they sipped their tea, ate off the fine china, and played Croquet. She was one of the most exquisite ocean liners of her time.
She was built by John Brown and Company, in Clydebank, Scotland. She was designed to be the first of Cunard's planned two-ship weekly express service from Southampton to Cherbourg to New York. And was one of the super liners of the late 1920s and early 1930s.
Today though, the RMS Queen Mary rests in Long Beach, California serving as a museum ship and hotel. She is also registered on the National Register of Historic Places. And now Queen Mary is a tourist attraction, and also houses hotel guests.
It wasn't until the ship was permanent spot that the reports of haunting happenings of the paranormal type came to pass.
There have been reports of hearing children crying in the nursery room, a mysterious splash noise in the drained first-class swimming pool, sightings of John Pedder, who was an engineer that was crushed by a watertight door in the engine room during a fire drill. And those are just a few of the stories passed along to the employees of the old gal.
Supposedly, the ghostly image of a young girl named Jackie Korin who drowned in the second class pool. And the young woman by the name of Sarah was said to have been murdered in the first class women's change rooms by an unknown man and haunts the first class pool with Jackie.
Some guests aboard the massive ship also claim to hear men screaming and the sound of metal crushing against metal can be heard below decks at the extreme front end of the bow.
RMS Queen Mary hold DAILY Ghost Tours to it's guests. Plus, they have a haunted maze and expands to multiple mazes during the Halloween season.
