We took the 'Ghosts and Legends' tour on the Queen Mary. There have been rumours that the ship is haunted and the tour will take you to places where people claimed that they saw ghosts etc.
Most of the time it will be quite dark during the tour, sometimes narrow, high and you have to take a lift. You'll walk through one or another spider web and they'll blow cold air at you. If you have a problem with any of that or fears, you might want to consider another tour.
The price for this tour and admission to the Queen Mary was $23.

The Queen Mary was launched on September 26, 1934 and had her maiden voyage on May 27, 1936. She was laid out for 1957 passengers plus 1174 crew members.
She also served as troopship during WW2 from 1940 till 1946.
She arrived in Long Beach 1967.
During the war the ship was renovated and carried a total of 765,429 military personnel including wooded returning to the USA and G.I. Brides and children. Parts of the Queen Mary have been redone to show how it looked as a troop carrier during World War II.
You can also tour through areas that were denied to most passengers or were impossible to see during her sailing years. Those areas include the Bridge, the Officers Quarters, the Radio Room, the Engine Room, and one of her remaining four propellers (weighing 35 tons), through an underwater viewing area.
The ship features an onboard hotel, a variety of restaurants and a wedding chapel. There are also 16 art deco reception salons which can be used for private celebrations.
For years paranormal experts have believed that the Queen Mary is haunted due to passenger and crew members reports of numerous eerie sightings.
The Queen Mary is Long Beach's most famous resident and landmark. Once a luxury liner, she sailed into Long Beach on December 9, 1967 and became a permanent fixture. The Queen Mary is the world's largest luxury liner and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The TOURIST CLASS cabin aka third class cabin. Spartan but still comfortable. I hope! :-)
Me? What class of cabin I can afford? They probably don't have it listed here... but the cargo class is all I can afford to pay... unless my boyfriend foots the bill. Then, it's a different story altogether. :-)
The impressive FIRST CLASS cabin... Champagne wishes and caviar dreams indeed.
Don't balk... but here's a list of how much it'd cost you if you choose to stay at the Queen Mary. Clutch your heart now:
Royalty Suite $450 - $500
Deluxe Stateroom $169 - $219
First Class Stateroom $159 - $179
Tourist Class Stateroom $129 - $149

Anybody knows Donald Trump's phone number?
Here's another view from the decks.....
Come and explore to your heart's content all 1,019.5 feet of the 81,237 ton ship. Do you know that you can even stay the night in one of the staterooms?!
Don't believe me? Check out VT member, Akeke's LONG BEACH page here on VT. He stayed on the ship itself! How cool is that?
Other things you can do whilst you're here is to see and board a Russian, Foxtrot class submarine.... catch a glimpse of some REAL Titanic artifacts and view the exhibits on the ill-fated liner.
Spend some time exploring Long Beach's most famous landmark - the Queen Mary.
Would you believe that for years, paranormal experts have believed that the Queen Mary is haunted! Yes, you heard correctly....
Passengers and crew members alike have reported numerous eerie sightings.... Now, where's Mulder and Scully when you need them most?
Guided and self-guided tours are available. I would strongly recommend taking a guided tour to get the most from your visit. This beautiful ship has shops, restaurants and entertainment.
I would also recommend a visit to the Scorpian - A Russian Foxtrot Submarine. It is interesting to see the cramped quarters that these men had to endure.
The Legendary cruise ship Queen Mary has been converted to a museum and hotel and now sits in Long Beach harbor. A good place to visit for a taste of old time luxury travel.
The ship has 3 elliptical gigantic smokestacks. The colour has been restored to their original Cunard Red colour. The Queen Mary’s trio of signature smokestacks.
Posters of famous former passengers have been placed on the covered promenade deck, and dozens of displays have Queen Mary memorabilia.
