The Queen Mary is among dozens of entities owned by Singapore-based Eagle Hospitality Trust, which filed for bankruptcy Monday in Delaware court, according to reports.

Eagle Hospitality is hoping to ease a reported $500 million in debt obligations with the Chapter 11 filing.

The iconic hotel and ocean liner – which is owned by the city of Long Beach – had faced financial difficulties prior to the pandemic before it was closed to the public last May.
