300 Ghosts at the Bow

The "Ghosts and Legends of the Queen Mary" tour also takes you down to the very front of the ship, where the Queen Mary once sliced through a smaller boat in the middle of the night. The smaller boat, with 300 crewmen aboard, sunk within ten minutes.

Because of wartime orders, the Queen Mary was not permitted to stop and pick up survivors. All 300 of the other ship's crew drowned, and as the story goes, you can still hear them pounding on the ship's hull.

I had about a minute to contemplate this before the loud, but cool, special effects chimed in again.
