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.

We didn’t plan to stop when we came to Long Beach but we are glad we did. The Princess Diana exhibit is great for the Di fan. The ship itself is great to wander around and experience.

I applaud the city of Long Beach for "saving" the Queen Mary and bringing her to their city. While there are many places that can be self toured at no cost, I highly recommend paying for a tour so you can get the wealth of knowledge from the tour guide. Before our tour started we stopped in a room that was showing some short video clips of people who had diversified or were passengers on the ship. Very interesting information from these clips. We also went down into the engine room and did a self-guided tour there as well.

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.
