Why is it haunted?

During World War II, the ship collided with one of its escorting vehicles, the HMS Curacoa, in the North Atlantic, as it carried nearly 20,000 U.S. troops. As the ships proceed in a zig-zag pattern to elude Nazi submarines, the Queen Mary struck the ship, cutting the smaller vessel in half. Only 99
of Curacoa’s crew of 338 reportedly survived. All the deaths contributed to the ship being haunted.


Various Ghost Sightings

  • The 1st and 2nd class poolrooms, where the spirit of a girl named Jackie is often seen and heard. Some have reported the sounds of splashing and spied wet footprints leading from the deck to changing rooms. (The area is closed now and is not open to anyone)
  • Lights being turned on and off on their own; phones ringing in the early morning hours with no one on the other line; water taps running and closing on their own are common instances that happen.
  • Other incidents include sounds of distinct knocks; doors slamming and high pitched squeals; drastic temperature changes; and aromas of smells that long last
    These are a few of many reports of apparitions and strange events that occur, but the most haunted all is the room B340.
  • In the Queen’s Salon, a beautiful young woman in an elegant white evening gown has often been seen dancing alone in the shadows of the corner of the room.

Room B340

In the ’60s, a man went crazy and brutally murdered two women. He was arrested and later locked in either room B222, B224 or B226, with a guard posted outside. After a while the man started pounding on the door stating someone was in there with him, trying to kill him. Thinking a reason to rescue, the guard ignored it. After a while, the man stopped and the guard assumed that he slept. Next day after opening the door to arrest him, the NYPD detectives found the man dead, ripped apart with his entrails and limbs spread all over the room. There was no way he could have done that himself.

In 1967, the three rooms combined into one, room B340, which was closed to people for almost 30+ years. It was recently open to the public, from paranormal investigators to people who just wanted to experience supernatural.


The room has witnessed apparitions of a man sitting on a chair watching the guests sleeping, tap water turning on and off on its own, and several knocks and screams inside the room without any logical explanation.

On the pillars of the room, there are stories written of paranormal activities and sightings happened to people before. The room also provides an Ouija board, crystal ball, devil cards, candles, to talk and communicate with spirits and demons. The wall of the washroom also provides with written instruction on how to summon the Bloody Mary.

The Logical Reasoning

Though there are various stories and legends regarding the Queen Mary and room B340, it is also plausible that these are just stories and are used for publicity for tourist attraction and for high revenue of the rooms, as there is no actual proof to back these stories up.
