As I mentioned in my last post, one of my recent domestic trips took me LAX. I had the chance to stay on The Queen Mary in Long Beach & I can’t believe I waited so long to share this post with you. But, since we’re just leaving Halloween season & since today is Friday the 13th, here’s my story about my stay on the famous haunted ship.
I landed pretty late at night & was ready to head straight to bed. I definitely noticed an eerie feeling upon my arrival. When I got into my room, my initial excitement turned to wonder… & a bit of fear. I mean this place is known for ghost sightings! I remember sleeping with the lights & tv on that night. This isn’t uncommon for me, in my states of exhaustion, but this time, it was on purpose.
I wanted to sleep in a bit, since I’d be working all night, as my returning flight was a redeye. I wanted to explore the ship & take in as much as I could. Here are some shots from my 3 hour, audio-guided walking tour.
In these next photos, you’ll see shots from the upper & lower decks, as well as some of the control rooms. It was really cool seeing some of the behind the scenes stuff.
After a delicious dinner on the upper deck, and a beautiful California sunset, I headed to my room to get ready for my flight.
Thanks for checking out this post. I hope you enjoyed it!
