Dark Harbor on the Scary Queen Mary
December 9, 1967, the Queen Mary made it’s last voyage to Long Beach, CA, where it docked in the harbor and became a tourist attraction. Almost immediately stories and legends of the ghosts that wander the ship, haunting it’s passengers began to leak out. Tourists ran out of their hotel rooms screaming, refusing to return. The sounds of housekeeping crews pushing their carts on the decks below in the middle of the night, maids giggling with stewards, and waking up to find your clothing properly folded and buttoned after leaving it a mess will make anyone turn and run the other way. “Dark Harbor” at the Queen Mary is not for the faint of heart, but also an experience you will NEVER forget.

If you are so brave to attend on All Hallow’s Eve, costumes are allowed. I’ll be attending as myself, since there is nothing scarier.
I can tell you from personal experience, watch yourself on “B” Deck. Things are not as they appear and this Queen will make sure you never forget that.
