What a great day!! We are def going again next year. Learned a lot at the included lectures. Had lunch on-board at the Chowder place (not stellar, but good, and a great view). The deco shopping part was very small and seemed quite pricey - but they had interesting, authentic stuff to drool over. We didn't make the included tour, but will try to do so next year. A great deal, thanks GS.

Ghosts & Legends Tour:
Find out why the Queen Mary is known as “the haunted ship” in this interactive, special effects adventure. Watch your step as you are guided through the deepest innards of the Queen Mary because you never know what lurks in the dark shadows of the ship. Explore the old boiler room where sweltering heat and tight quarters were a recipe for disaster. Visit the damaged hull that split a ship leaving few survivors and the old First-Class swimming pool where swimmers are regularly spotted despite the fact the pool has no water. Relive tales of paranormal incidents, accidents and ghost sightings. There’s no doubt the Queen Mary is full of mystery and lore and the Ghosts & Legends Show is sure to leave you asking the question, “If it wasn’t a ghost, what was it?” Summoning believers daily. Approx. 35 minutes.
