Our visit to the Queen Mary was amazing. We opted for the Diana exhibition and was astounded at how much there was to see. It was so well put together and so informative. Well done. The ship itself was awesome. It was quite quiet when we visited which was a bonus really enabling us to get some nice photos. The free shuttle bus was an added bonus and it was easy to get the Long Beach using the Metro.
The ship is quite a throwback in time. We didn't give it 5 stars only because we could not do the audio tour or the submarine, both were under construction. We stayed two nights, the first night was quiet and we slept well. Second night had noisy kids next door. Unfortunately there wasn't anything we could do about that.
Food was tasty but expensive. Loved the happy hour in the observation lounge. Wanted food but the kitchen was closed the first day. After other guests complained it was opened on the second day but we already had dinner plans and didn't try the food there.
Good time, enjoyed the haunted tour. I recommend trying the Queen Mary, it was fun.
Fantastic experience to have been abord such an icon. There were lots to see, however, as the ship also doubles up as a Hotel there were many areas that were not accessable. Could have spent a lot more time in the engine room.
We purchased a first class passport for our tour of the Queen Mary. This enabled us to do our own walking tour of the ship, plus a guided behind the scenes tour. It also included 2 movies in the theater, but we did not have time to do this. The guided tour was interesting, with a lot of informative facts about the history of the Queen Mary. The ship was beautiful, with it's art deco design and old world ambience. We spent 4 hours touring the Queen Mary - there is a lot to see. A very worthwhile activity while visiting Long Beach.
The Queen Mary tour in itself was wonderful. We booked this particular tour because it also offered the tour of the Russian Submarine. However, when we arrived, we were informed the submarine was closed due to restoration, which has been going on for the past year. The website needs to be updated, asap!
I love the Queen Mary! I took the haunted tour and thoroughly enjoyed it! After the tour I enjoyed strolling along the decks of this beautiful ocean liner! I then had a lovely dinner at one of the wonderful restaurants on board! It truly was a wonderful experience!
