"Born to reign upon the seas, the RMS Queen Mary is a testament to British Shipbuilding. Paranormal researcher and author, Nicole Strickland, has conducted both historical and paranormal research on the liner for over 12 years. In this book, she delves deeply into the vessel's spiritual phenomena, sharing her many encounters with its ghostly activity and resident energies. This volume also shares previously unpublished experiences from research colleagues and ship visitors. Stories abound for each Queen Mary passenger and crew member. In a way, her spiritual phenomena help to share the story of her unrivaled career on the high seas, a quest to help keep both her living and haunted legends afloat. Uniting the people of her past with those of her present, this stately masterpiece continues to share her living haunted legend with visitors from all over the world."
There is something so incredibly special about the RMS Queen Mary, and this book provides a phenomenal adventure into the haunted realm of this grand ship. I was amazed at the sheer volume of paranormal activity that occurs on this ship. This book provides mesmerizing detail that covers the entire vessel! From hotel guest reports to her own plethora of experiences, Nicole Strickland gives the reader a spectacular look into this fascinating side of the RMS Queen Mary. Describing various experiences in state rooms, to the 'famous' hauntings of the former first class passenger pool by a little girl named Jackie, "Spirited Queen Mary" is a must read for anyone who is interested in finding out more about the spirits who are an integral part of this historical ship. I took the book along with me on a recent stay aboard the Queen Mary so I could check out some of the 'hot spots' mentioned in the book. Lo and behold, I captured (on a recorder) some interesting 'knocking' sounds on "B Deck" which Nicole Strickland notes in the book as a very 'active'. Fantastic read and I'll be taking it along with me when I visit the ship again later this year!
Wow! Nicole has such love and a deep connection with this grand ship & the spirits that dwell there. Fascinating, I can't wait for more!!!!
Another wonderful book by Ms. Strickland. I love reading anything and everything about The Queen Mary. You can tell the author knows a great deal about the QM, her history and paranormal encounters Great read!
Great book! You get a lot of information when you tour the Queen Mary, but you get so much more when you read the book too!
Nicole Stricklands Spirited Queen Mary, is both elegant and haunting. With each page turned, you find yourself aboard this grand lady, looking for a glimpse of those who sailed upon her.
"Obviously, the ship is known for having re-occurring and continuous types of paranormal activity. Almost daily, tourists report the phantom sounds of knocking and tapping on stateroom doors and walls. I have encountered this many times. Doors will mysteriously open up or unlock by themselves. Throughout many areas of the ship, phantom footsteps can be heard walking right past you. Many people have reported hearing banging and hammering throughout the ship. Lights will turn on and off and disembodied voices can be heard almost anywhere on deck. Cold spots and the feeling of rushing air are felt even in air-tight areas. Tourists’ belongings have been reported to go missing or moved to another location. You name the spirit or type of paranormal activity, and the Queen Mary most likely has it. I consider the ship to be a floating paranormal phenomenon. Visitors to the liner can potentially encounter the ethereal side anywhere on its premises, as its entire structure attracts spiritual energy."
"In the pages to come, you will find some investigative tips and suggestions correlating to certain areas of the ship. In general, however, always remember to approach your visits to the Queen Mary and onboard paranormal investigations with respect and reverence for the ship and its inhabitant ghosts and spirits. Remember that these ethereal energies were once living in the mortal realm, just like you and I. Many of them experienced arduous times while sailing on the ship and in death, may be repeating their last moments. All ghosts and spirits on the Mary deserve to be treated with admiration and kindness, regardless of their backgrounds and circumstances. And needless to say, the Mary herself should be treated with utmost respect, as every inch of her served humanity for many years. She was designed as a ship of peace. Approach your research with gratitude and appreciate the energies for their participation in your investigation. This will enable you to build a trusted rapport with both the RMS Queen Mary and her many spirits. Be creative and have fun!"
