We had an unexpected stay in Long Beach. We ended up on the Queen Mary Ship that is now a Hotel. Our room was amazing with a port hole that looked onto the city of Long Beach all lite up for the night. The room was clean but lighting dim. We had heard so many stories about how haunted this ship is but we didn't get to see any spirits or hear any noises. We ate dinner in one of the Dining rooms and the service and food was wonderful. Our waiter gave us directions to the ladies room, saying to go through the double doors, then right- the hall will be dark but you can get there by following the hall. The Maitre d saw us headed for the doorway, asked us where we going and said "no, you do not want to use that hall, it can be chilling." He then spent time at our table chatting with us and when we went to the bar he came in and kept up our conversation. We tried to talk him into taking us to the acclaimed most haunted place on the ship "the pool", but it was down below and locked for the night. His answer to taking us there was "no way am I visiting that area it is to scary and I would never take you ladies." We had tried to talk the bartender into taking us earlier and he said "no, it is was to creepy for him." So needless to say we didn't get to see the pool area. We would go back again to spend a bit more time exploring. The ship is beautiful with restored and original walls, wallpaper, doors and so much more. A great stop along the way.
