I felt transported to another era; a priceless art and history lesson in the same visit.


from The Queen Mary Passport
Since its maiden voyage in 1936, The Queen Mary has transported iconic figures from Winston Churchill to Fred Astaire across the ocean blue, and it even helped transport troops during World War II. Now at home in the Port of Long Beach, the venerable ship pairs art-deco trappings with stunning Pacific Ocean views.

The onboard hotel recreates transoceanic luxury in her 346 staterooms (which include 9 full suites). Guests here often make multiple trips to onsite restaurants, such as the award-winning Sir Winston’s and Chelsea Chowder House & Bar, as well as appearances at the weekly Champagne Sunday Brunch served in the ship’s Grand Salon.

On arrival at the Queen Mary, proceed to the onsite box office, to be booked on the guided tour (included in admission price) and receive complimentary guide maps.

Please Note: Due to the historic nature of the vessel, not all areas are easily accessible by guests with mobility issues. The Diana Exhibit is fully accessible; most other tours and exhibits require extensive use of stairs.

Parking: $18/day, $22/overnight, $27/valet parking (Subject to change based on Special Event schedule here.)

Blackout Dates: The Queen Mary is open 365 days a year, but a separate Special Event ticket is required to visit on some dates, including but not limited to: 7/4, and 12/31 (subject to change without notice)

"Awesome Tours"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We did both “The Glory Days” tour and “The Haunted Tour and thought both were good. The first one was “The Haunted Tour” and it was funny & a bit creepy. During one part the lady in front of me kept saying ”I feel something touching me.” Her partner wasn’t close by and no one was between us & there was a distance. The second tour, “The Glory Days” was awesome for the most part it was our Tour Guide James who made it so. He knew his stuff. His love for this beautiful ship showed and made the tour the best ship tour I’ve ever been on. Thank you The Queen Mary for keeping us entertained on a cold, rainy Monday!

"A bit disappointing "
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 19, 2018 NEW
We booked to stay on this retired cruise ship for two nights. The cabins are cute as they’re a throwback to the 1930s. Be warned that quoted prices are for a room without a window we upgraded and were so glad we did as even the larger room was very small and stuffy . Don’t expect luxury either the fittings are very old and decrepit and it comes with a rather high price tag of £200+ per room . All in all I would not recommend staying here .

Way overpriced for just a tour and to make things worse they charge you an additional $18 just to park for a couple of hours. Save your money and go somewhere else. There is just not much to see here.

"Faaaaaantastic Experience and history"

I was very excited to be at the Famous Queen Mary, but we didn't have idea what about to expect. Was really a such pleasant experience, out bedroom was quite original, but very comfortable and clean, the view from the ship was incredible, all the crew was very nice and friendly, even explained to my son to use the Morse code. We did the tour and hear and feel all the history behind was amazing. Also interesting that in a certain way, Queen Mary will be survive for a long time. We plan to be back soon!

"Paranormal ship walk"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5

BUY YOUR TICKETS ON GOLDSTAR because they're $22 instead of $45! This two-hour tour was not even worth the $22, though. It is a lot of walking and a lot of stairs, so if you're elderly or have trouble walking and standing for long periods of time, this may not be the tour for you. Wear comfortable shoes! Now, the negatives: this tour is about walking up and down the ship's hallways (which you can do for free) while a guide tells you 4 or 5 stories about ghosts that were spotted in those locations (ex: ghost in white was seen here, moving on, ghost in white was seen here, moving on). You don't get to go inside any haunted rooms or even see the inside of a hotel room - just stand outside the door of both the Eisenhower suite and Churchill suite. Literally - you look at the door. You move from top floor to bottom floor (7 levels) of the ship. While it is labeled a "paranormal" walk, the "paranormal" activity comes from the tour guide turning off the lights, telling you to take pictures of mirrors, and going home and checking if any ghosts appeared in your photo. She/he proceeds to do this throughout every "spot." Many of the short stories of supposedly seen ghosts don't come with a "spooky legend" but just a speculation about who the ghost might have been and how they might have died. As a young adult who is scared of even the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland, this was a boring disappointment. Much of what is shown can be seen for free. You pay for the history of the ship... which can be found online (like who built what and who painted what). Also, much of the history is about older celebrities who once visited the ship and in my early 20s, I did not recognize a single name and therefore was not impressed. Definitely felt like an older, family activity! While the staff here is very kind, this tour is unnecessary and outdated. The ship itself is very old and dilapidated. It seriously needs a remodel which I hear is due next year (save the trip for then...). Overall, walking from top to bottom of the ship without any spooky stories or legends or ghost sightings or even a feeling of slight nervousness was simply beneficial for the exercise.
