A Legend Lives On
There was a time when transatlantic passage aboard an ocean liner was the most luxurious way to travel the world. Movie stars, heads of state, millionaires and royalty alike sailed the oceans while enjoying world-class amenities and service. At the helm of the ocean travel industry, Cunard found its fleet depleted by World War I commissions. Plans began for THE QUEEN MARYSM and her sister ship, the Queen Elizabeth, in 1930. These ships were imagined to be the biggest, the grandest and the ultimate in luxury liners. Built by John Brown &
The Queen Mary Today
Company, LTD., in Clydebank, Scotland, the Queen Mary was appointed with every measure of elegance. From the time of her maiden voyage in 1936, the Queen Mary was regarded as the only way to travel by the elite of high society. At a massive 81,237 tons and 1,019.5 feet in length, she accommodated up to 2,000 passengers in pampered luxury. With the outbreak of World War II, she was commissioned into service to carry more than 765,000 troops and travel more than 560,000 miles, playing a substantial role in every major Allied campaign. Following the war, she resumed her place as the monarch of the waterways. Retired in 1967, she was purchased by the City of Long Beach, California, where she is permanently berthed today as a unique leisure and meeting hotel.
Gross tonnage: 81,237.

diversiOns tO expLOre
The Queen Mary is just six miles from the L.A. Cruise Terminal, 24.2 miles (30 minutes) from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and 27.5 miles from Disneyland. Its ideal location makes exploring Long Beach simple. Because it’s not only what’s on board the Queen Mary that attracts visitors, but also what lies just beyond the ship. Settled along 5.5 miles of sandy coastline, Long Beach boasts the ambiance of a sophisticated urban center and the charm of an oceanside community. Long Beach’s downtown waterfront sets a new standard for walkability,
with shopping, dining and seaside sightseeing, just steps from each other. Located 20 miles south of Los Angeles, there is much to see and do in the city. The Aquarium of the Pacific is a world-class facility and home to over 12,500 inhabitants of the Pacific Ocean. There are several museums nearby including the renowned Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA). And Second Street in nearby Belmont Shore is the quintessential beachfront community. With 345 days of sunshine, the Mediterranean climate makes Long Beach the ultimate year-round playground.
