Once a luxurious ocean liner, today The Queen Mary is home to a hotel, restaurants, and numerous exhibits. Take one of the guided tours to learn about the history of the ship, including its construction and service in WWII. A variety of other tours are available, such as an exploration of the ship’s haunted past and a journey into the historic submarine. After getting your fill of history, browse some of the stores. A nautical-themed gift makes a great souvenir. Don’t leave without sampling some of the onboard drinking and dining options. The 1930’s-themed observation bar, once the liner’s first-class lounge, offers superb ocean views.

The Queen Mary is massive! It’s hard to take it all in, take your time! Take my advice and do the one hour haunted history tour, very worthwhile. Not scary at all but a great way to get some history a... more »
I would give it 3 1/2 stars. It's not bad. If you like history and cruise ships than this would be great for you. It's a neat experience, if I stayed here again I would want a suit. The restaurant / Bar has good food and drinks. There are ghost tours and shows you can also check out. It's worth staying at least once.
Beautiful boat! We are staying here a week at the hotel. Everyone has been outstanding. We met Margaret who's in security, very nice! We also met Richard who was the maintenance man who was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend coming here if you're on vacation in California or just visiting and they also give tours of the Queen Mary to their non hotel guests as well. Plus there are beautiful views of long Beach from the restaurant!
