  • I love history and I love haunted places, so this was a great place to explore from me. You can explore so much of the ship at your leisure, or you can participate in a haunted tour. I roamed around the ship from 2:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. by myself just exploring freely and spooking myself out. We stayed in a cabin for a couple of nights and it was very comfortable. They had a great mix of comfort and convenience along with original fittings, fixtures, decorations that really take you back in time. The ship has numerous exhibits, Museum areas, tons of information to learn from. The staff were very friendly, including the captain who we met at one of the bars on board - he was not drinking, just doing the rounds and introducing himself. We ate at the Winston Churchill restaurant, the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was phenomenal. I enjoyed being on this ship so much and I would love to go back.
  • My wife and I stayed at the Queen Mary for our honeymoon in 2017 and it was the best hotel stay we've yet had. They upgraded our room for free, delivered us champagne and chocolate Strawberries as a wedding present, and gave us a free ghost tour on our last day. The ship itself is a fun little museum experience and getting to have coffee on the deck is something you don't want to miss. I'm sad to hear about all the recent issues the ship has had, I really recommend seeing it while you still can.
