The future of the RMS Queen Mary, a haunted ship permanently moored in California, is looking uncertain after its operator filed for bankruptcy.

The retired British ocean liner, now docked in Long Beach, has been investigated by such paranormal teams as 'Most Haunted', 'Ghost Adventures', 'Ghost Hunters' and Xavier the Cryptid Hunter.

The Queen Mary was moored in Long Beach in 1967, where it now serves as a tourist attraction housing restaurants, a museum and a hotel. This month the Singapore-based hospitality company that runs the attraction has filed for bankruptcy, following several previous operators who've also ran into financial difficulties in the past few decades.

Eagle Hospitality has racked up more than $500 million in debt across its ventures, which includes hotels and other properties, since it halted trading on the Singapore Stock Exchange in 2019.

The Queen Mary embarked on her maiden voyage on 27 May 1936 and spent most of its operational life on the North Atlantic running a passenger service between Southampton in the UK and New York, along with her sister ship, the RMS Queen Elizabeth.

The Queen Mary was retired from service in 1967 and since being docked in California has garnered a reputation of being extremely haunted and was even listed in a Time magazine article entitled, 'Top 10 Haunted Places'.. The ship was investigated by Zak Bagans and the 'Ghost Adventures' team in 2014, and television ghost hunter Yvette Fielding took Derek Acorah and the rest of the 'Most Haunted' team aboard back in 2005.

The Queen Mary has been closed to the public since May due to the pandemic, but normally it operates various ghost tours aboard, including the 'Ghosts and Legends' tour, which promises guests "terrifying original stories and characters based on the shipโ€™s well-known paranormal tales."

The ship is said to be haunted by several spirits, including the ghost of a murdered a young woman. Room B-340, a former third class cabin, is said to be the most notoriously haunted room onboard.
