Would you stay in one that is known to be haunted? We're planning a surprise trip to Disneyland for Jenna's b-day, but are flying into Long Beach. We're getting in later, so decided to stay the night in Long Beach. Jenna's always asked for us to take her on a cruise and I love the history of the super ships built around the time of the Titanic. Well, DH and I saw that the Queen Mary is a hotel now and so we decided it would be awesome to stay in.

I'm still excited to go and see it all, I love the history and that era...but I'm a bit freaked out. Not enough to cancel the reservation and I'm not going to mention anything to Jenna while we're there.

So....would you stay?

Nope. I believe in all that stuff and it freaks me out. I have been in houses that I have found out later on have had ghosts and I can "feel" them. Yup, I am whacked!!

Personally I wouldn't stay. I had a ghost experience as a child and it freaks me out.

I would, definitely! I've seen the Queen Mary on GhostHunters and Most Haunted. But I love that kind of thing and I've always wanted to experience a ghost. I never have though - I always found something to explain away any strangeness.

DH stayed in a haunted room (noises, bathroom taps came on, weird feelings, couldn't sleep) in a converted castle years ago on a work trip, and he actually took me back a few months later to see if I felt anything. When we got there and tried to book that room, we discovered that it is "never" used because it is haunted. The reception didn't even have any record that he had stayed in it.

They let us see it, and it had a strange set-up with stone steps down to the room door, and the bathroom added on kind of behind those steps but accessible from another set of steps inside the room. You had to walk up steps to get to either door, and the bed head was against the wall between those two doors.

But it only felt stuffy and unused, not creepy. One day!

I would stay. I would tell Jenna to expect funny noises on ships because they're built of metal not concrete. And take a video recorder!

Lizzie Borden freaks me out.

Greg and I stayed at the Hotel del Coronado in California's Coronado Island. It's haunted by many spirits. We felt none of them. I would totally stay in another haunted hotel but wouldn't sleep, I'd be investigating all night!

A few years ago, I saw a play on PBS about Lizzie Borden, and the kids were chanting that rhyme about her, and I think I was traumatized after! It was creepy!! But yeah I wanna stay somewhere haunted as long as I have some people with me at all time!

I'd be behind Viv holding onto the back of her jammie top while she investigates with a flashlight in the dark!

If I knew it was haunted before hand, no. Not a chance. If I didn't know, yes I'd go. I'm a wimp.

I did a ghost tour on one of those ships when it was in California. Spooky as hell.

So, we all agree I just won't mention it to Jenna and I'll take lots of anxiety meds with me...

That's your choice!

I don't believe you have the slightest need to worry. You won't come to any worse harm on the QM than going on a ship that isn't haunted. Just take your bubble-wrap boiler suit as usual, and maybe some ear-plugs and you'll be fine.

Good luck.....

That was weird that Cs trip was not noted Rosey.....spooky!!!!
There are not many haunted places here, since we are a pretty young country, but there is a hotel not far from Queenstown that's supposedly haunted . Surprised you did not search that one out Rosey!
Not sure if I would be keen or messing myself!!!! Lol
