posticon Queen Mary


The film Poseidon 1972 was originally filmed onboard, just small pieces. They also copied the Dining Salon for a set. The Queen Mary was once knocked over on her side one afternoon and almost capsized. Paul Gallico was onboard when it happened. That's how he got the idea for writing the book of Poseidon. The rooms were beautifully decorated in the 70's style. She is now dokced at a harbour somewhere, I can't remamber where, but she's now a hotel.

Re: Queen Mary


Bits of the film SOS Titanic were also filmed aboard Queen Mary.

Queen Mary is now at Long Beach, California.

Re: Queen Mary


As a very fitting prelude to our shipboard one-week vacation cruise onboard Royal Caribbean's Monarch of the Seas at San Pedro, CA...

As a major icing on the cake, I'm thrilled to say that we spent the night onboard the Queen Mary. We also took the offered three tours aboard her as well, but [sign in to see URL] didn't encounter any ghosts. Sowwy.

The Queen however, totally startled me out of my gourd as I was exploring her different decks, by letting out three long blasts of her fore-funnel horn emoticon just as I walked by it. I was just below her deck where her bridge is located. I also sustained an injury of my right ring-finger, when I was walking on the deck just below her bridge deck. I accidentally tripped on her L-shaped chicadarises that hold her super structure railing inplace. It wasn't her fault, but it was my fault. I wasn't watching my [sign in to see URL] didn't notice just how narrow the passageway was there.

Our First Class cabins came complete w/2 porthole windows were fabulously decadent. Our beds/berths were very comfortable, and our bathrooms/loos were nice 'n' clean. For breakfast, we ate on the starboard Promenade Deck's Cafe, and I dare say--our breakfast was very delicious too.

Infact, I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever about this awesomely gorgeous true Queen of the Ocean. I give her three thumbs (whis we had a thumb-up smilie) up! emoticon

Re: Queen Mary


Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files of the Syfy Channel visited Queen Mary to check out one reported ghostly appearance by what looked-like to being either a crew/or passenger dressed in white clothing.

When they were down on the swimming pool deck's dressing room(s)...they spotted a pair of glowing eyes coming towards them. As it turned out, those glowing eyes turned out to being the eyes of a Raccoon. I think that they may have seen another Raccoon too.

And that what freaks me out!!! Not knowing just how long those Raccoons were onboard the ship, and they may have also had baby Raccoons...

And the four of us, back in 2007, spent one night onboard [sign in to see URL] have, without knowing, been there all along.

Anyhoo, I hope 'n' pray that they called the Animal Control folks, and had the Raccoons [sign in to see URL] well as taken them elsewhere *AND* far away from the ship. To nevermore come aboard QM ever again. Don't you hope that too!?!
