The RMS Queen Mary — a retired cruise ship currently operating as a hotel and museum — might be converted into a hospital.

The Queen Mary left service in 1967 and has since been docked in Long Beach, California. Travel + Leisure declared it the “Most Haunted Hotel in America.”

According to the Long Beach Post, “multiple sources said the ship could be used as a type of convalescent facility for patients who no longer need intensive hospital care. The nearly 100-year-old ship, which is owned by the city, is currently a hotel with more than 300 rooms and a large parking lot.”

The Queen Mary would become the second hospital ship in the Los Angeles area. The USNS Mercy arrived in the Port of Los Angeles late last month.

However, the Post also notes, “a string of critical reports by the Queen Mary’s former inspector made waves for the city and raised concerns about whether the vessel is safe and structurally sound.”

So a purportedly haunted ship — whose safety is in question — may be turned into a hospital.

What could possibly go wrong?
