Haunted Encounters

The Queen of all Ghost Stories

With such a varied and intriguing past it’s not surprising that the Queen Mary has been voted one of the Top 10 Most Haunted Places in America by Time magazine.

Get a detailed overview of the Queen Mary’s most haunted areas and paranormal hotspots. Explore the ship inside and out and hear stories about the ship’s most famous reported apparitions.

Among the ghosts reportedly still hanging around is an engineer who died in the ship's engine room, a "lady in white," and various children located throughout the ship including the 1st Class Pool (the tour stops at the entrance doors to the swimming pool, but does not go inside the pool area due to ongoing restoration projects).

Haunted Encounters is offered only during the day...but when the sun goes down, the spirits aboard the Queen Mary come out to play. Explore the legendary ship with a series of twilight tours and séances that explore the haunted past and paranormal activity that the Queen Mary is known for...click here for more information on our Tours at Night - including Dining With the Spirits, Paranormal Investigation and Paranormal Ship Walk.
