A lover of both history and the Golden Age of Hollywood, it was a real treat to be able to tour the HMS Queen Mary, berthed in Long Beach California. From a 4D presentation, to the engine room, an original propeller, the delight of shopping in the main Piazza, and a cocktail in the art-deco bar, it was an enjoyable few hours on board. Some of the ship was not available to us but there was certainly enough to see on the "limited tour." We had made dinner reservations but still had to pay to actually go on the ship and so we paid the lesser of the two amounts. But if you are a lover of history or of how cruise ships looked back in the Golden Age of Hollywood, this is a tour you should not miss.
