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)

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)

Visited the Queen Mary for dinner while on a business trip to Long Beach. Food was good, service good. Interesting to walk around boat. A very fun light display while i was leaving. Lights reflecting off the dome building at the stern of the Queen Mary. Fun outing.

We were warmly welcome with a mimosa which was renewed during the meal. Good service all aroud and very good food. List of tables: Seafood, meat, mexican, eggs, fruit and awesome desserts. The buffet was constantly renewed. Our table was a bit too close to the buffet and we felt a bit cought in the circulation. No espresso, which should be offered to match the quality of the brunch.

"So cool!"

Okay, I am a history nut and have watched Titanic like 30 times and so many documentaries on Titanic and numerous other ship wrecks, so a historic ship in all its glory was a dream come true. So much history on board! I was a bit nervous coming into the Haunted Encounters tour, but I HIGHLY recommend it. I thought I got to see a lot more than the Glory Days tour, but I’d recommend both. We bought the biggest package so got to see all the exhibits. I would have been okay not seeing the Diana exhibit or Their Finest Hours, but they’re worth a visit if you have the time. I loved the small Titanic exhibit, of course. We spent the rest of the day exploring the ship on our own and went to upper decks to see the lifeboats and the WWII gun on deck. Make sure to find the Isolation Unit! The engine room was also super cool and the propeller at the bottom of the ship, but really neat. We finished off the day at the Observation Bar (I insisted on eating on the ship) for appetizers and a drink. Before we left, I used the bathroom that is supposedly haunted and has had numerous sightings, so I was nervous, but I made it out! Only drawback was the first class pool. It is closed for the foreseeable future, guide said maybe 3-5 years.

I’ve always wanted to stay here. The majority of this place is still original. Our room is big. It must have been a 1st class room at one time. There are 2 queen size beds, a sitting room area and a very large bathroom. The fixtures are ornate and I imagine original. The bathtub is square.
