Pirates - it's officially October and that means, falling leaves, pumpkin spied everything and, most importantly, Halloween. Here at Pirate HQ we love all things spooky so we have the perfect deal for our like-minded mateys.
To get yourself geared up for a spook-tacular time, we bring you what is - widely known - as one of the most haunted places to stay in the world. The Queen Mary used to transport sailors, however, after a number of incidents it was decommissioned. Now-a-days you can grab some kip on this vessel that is twice the size of the Titanic, with this deal you can grab flights as well as 5 nights on board this historic boat from as little as £547* per person.
Located in Long Beach California, south of LA, there are loads of things to do on this alternate vacation other than ghost hunting. The cheapest dates we have found are on our Holiday Finder in January but if you'd prefer something a little warmer, or maybe even to stay during Halloween itself, it's easy to alter the dates to suit your travel plans.

On dry land, Long Bech has a lot to offer tourists, especially along the promenade, or why not take a day trip over to LA and experience the life of an A-lister for a day?
A bit of history...
Built in the 1930s, The Queen Mary initially sailed from Southampton as a luxury liner. During WW2 it was repurposed to transport sailors and POWs. Afterwards, it was docked in Long Beach CA where it remains to this day. During its time as a working ship, there were a number of 'incidents' reported on board, creating the foundations for many a folk tail about apparitions that remain on the ship.
Made popular by ammeter ghost hunters and YouTubers, why not give the Queen Mary a chance and see if you believe the stories.
