This April, board The Queen Mary for a paranormal experience on one of the scariest days of the year, Friday the 13th. Dubbed one of the “Top 10 most haunted places on Earth” by Time Magazine, The Queen Mary, featured on Syfy’s “Ghost Hunters” will open its notoriously haunted Stateroom B340 for overnight guests. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to spend the night in the middle of an alleged paranormal hot spot.
“Several of the cabins onboard the Queen Mary are considered haunted. But, the stateroom with the most infamous reputation is room B340,” said Stephen Sowards, General Manager of the Queen Mary. “The last time the room was occupied by a guest was in the 1980’s. For decades we’ve had thousands of visitors request to occupy the room, and after 30 years, we are excited to once again extend the offer to our guests.”
Stateroom B340 has a lengthy record of paranormal activity with many stories of haunted encounters noted in the ship’s logs. Reports date back to the final ocean voyage in 1967 and include complaints from guests staying in B340 claiming that someone was knocking on the door in the middle of the night. Other allegations include bathroom lights turning on by themselves, sink faucets turning on and off on its own, and unexplained doors shutting. Some guests have reported the covers of their bed being pulled off while asleep and waking to see a dark figure at the foot of the bed.
The space was originally made of three third class staterooms and has since been remodeled to become one large guest room suite. A perfect blend of style and modern amenities, B340 is larger than the average cruise ship cabin and features operable portholes, and offers all the modern conveniences of a contemporary hotel. The famously haunted stateroom offers a true ocean liner experience. In addition to standard hotel room amenities, B340 will supply a chest with unique items available for guests to amplify their overnight haunt experience, including Ouija board, tarot cards, crystal ball, and ghost hunting equipment.
“The Queen Mary’s year-long haunted attractions and tours continue to draw thrill-seekers of all ages in 2018 with continued updates and enhancements. Since its soft opening in winter of 2017, the re-inspired Ghosts and Legends Tour has added more frights with a new scene, more ambient lighting, and elevated scare factors all in hopes to strengthen the presence of the Queen Mary’s resident ghosts. Additional haunted attractions offered onboard the Queen Mary include Paranormal Shipwalk, Dining with Spirits, and Paranormal Investigation. The Paranormal Investigation tour invites guests to join ship para-investigator and ParaXplorer Project founder Matthew Schulz as he leads visitor investigators into the depths of the RMS Queen Mary’s purported active locations.”
