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

Description

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)

"Entertaining if you're looking for something to do."

We visited the Queen Mary for the evening ghost tour they have. We went to the bar (not the resturaunt) to have a drink before our tour. The staff at the bar and tour check in left much to be desired. The boat could use some renovations. The carpet is worn badly and had a smell to it. They did mention during our tour that they will begin painting the boat soon. The ship has some exhibits onboard and those were very interesting to see. The tour guide was entertaining and fun. We didn't see or hear any ghosts but we did have fun.

We enjoyed touring the Queen Mary. We explored much of the ship before we took the history tour. It definitely is not a wow! attraction. They are starting renovations on the ship. So you may want to wait until these are completed. The special exhibit on Diana and the Royal Family was very good to see.

Interesting to see but not as "wow" as I thought it would be. The historic tour was good. The ghost tour was ok. The guide was good but basically there isn't anything paranormal here so they tell a few "maybe" stories but nothing scary. It's a nice stop. Don't spend the night.

"Go after 6pm!"

I was happy we went after 6pm (based on our hotel recommendation) when it's free. The history is neat to see and, as a cruiser, it's amazing to see how ships still look so much a-like after 100 years. That said, the QM needs a little bit of work. It was confusing to know what you could or couldn't visit (still never found the bridge, despite following signs). The engine room visit is amazing, although there's not much in terms of descriptions. Maybe a guided tour would of helped. Didn't see much hand's-on things for the kids to do. More an adult visit.

This was one of my must-sees I had planned on a recent road trip. From the outside the ship is impressive. First on my list was seeing the Princess Diana exhibit. To start the exhibit, there was a lot of memorabilia, photographs and history of the royal family. You can spend a lot of time here if you want to look and read everything that is displayed. At the end of the exhibit Diana’s dresses were beautifully displayed. Most of the displays had a picture of her showing when she wore the dress. We choose the historic tour next. It lasts about an hour and tours a few parts of the ship, including the ballroom. The tour was filled with interesting history and facts about the ship. Unfortunately, all the hotel rooms were occupied so we didn’t see any staterooms. If you get a chance, take the self-guided tour through the engine rooms – this was very impressive. The tea room was closed so we went to the Starbuck’s on board and enjoyed our coffee/tea on the deck. Parking costs $18.00. The ship definitely needs some TLC (especially painting) but for me it was worth seeing this piece of history and imaging what it was like back in the day.
