The Queen Mary is a full-service Long Beach hotel, historical landmark, and entertainment venue featuring award-winning restaurants, historical attractions, numerous special event salons and 346 staterooms.

I did not stay on the Queen Mary. My husband & I did a couple of tours on the ship. We did the Glory days tour and the Princess Diana exhibit. While it is free to wander around parts of the ship, I highly recommend going on a guided tour. The tour guide provided us with so much information about the ship. There was also a short movie clip available for you to watch. It was personal accounts of time on the ship told by soldiers, war brides, and previous employees. Very interesting!

We actually attended a wedding on the Queen Mary last year. It was great to experience this once great lady of the sea.

Checked in to the hotel around 3pm, then walked around the ship and even went on the haunted tour (only $10 per person). You could easily spend a few hours walking around. There are a variety of interesting, free exhibits around the different levels. The ship has a very interesting past, including service during World War II as the "Grey Ghost". We stayed the night in one of the Deluxe Staterooms (two twin beds)- very cool- like stepping back in time. Be sure to ask for an even-numbered room if you want the bay view (otherwise you'll be looking at the parking lot). We visited in March- and there was hardly anyone on the ship! It was like having the whole ship to ourselves! The room still has many of the original furniture, fixtures, and paneling. The only down-side is that the walls must be pretty thin, in that we could hear everything next door. The gift shops and restaurants are also nice. There is even Starbucks coffee available on board. BONUS- There is a free shuttle that can take you to downtown Long Beach area. You can hop on and off at different locations. We went to Seaport Village for appetizers and drinks at the Yard House for Happy Hour.

The Queen Mary is a historical relic, amazing that a country as wealthy as United States doesn't throw a few dollars and this amazing piece of history

It's a must visit, it takes you back in time the good and bad eras
From glamorous voyages to bringing home troops

A true living history lesson. There are some Hokey things like the haunted ship tour, but 90% of the stuff is fantastic.
A few years back a good friend did his daughter's wedding party in the ball room here. We got a room on the ship and spent the night. It was a fantastic experience!
