I was just watching a Buzzfeed Unsolved video (see it here) where they investigate The Queen Mary and the infamous room B340 (at the time, the infamously haunted room had not seen a guest since the 1980s and was empty of furniture), and today The Queen Mary announced they are re-opening their most haunted cabin to the public! Would you dare to stay in this spooky stateroom? If so, read on to find out more from the official press release below:
"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 large volume of recorded 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 complaints include bathroom lights turning on by themselves, the sink faucet turning on and off on its own, and unexplained bathroom doors shutting. Some guests have reported the covers of their bed being pulled off while asleep and waking to see a dark figure standing at the foot of the bed.
During voyage years, the space encompassed three third class staterooms, and has since been remodeled to become one large guest room suite. A perfect blend of authentic style and modern amenities, B340 is larger than the average cruise ship cabin. Featuring operable portholes and offering 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 a 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.
Cabin reservations for stateroom B340 will be available for booking Friday, April 13, 2018 and start at $499 per night. Reservations are available at 877-342-0742. Check-in is at 3 p.m. and check-out is at 11 a.m. For more information, or to purchase tickets for the haunted attractions and tours, please visit queenmary.com.
