Of the many trips I’d taken to Long Beach, CA, I’ve never been able to take a tour of the majestic Queen Mary. Docked at the same port as Carnival Cruise ships, the Queen Mary is a floating hotel open to special events, dining and tours.
Our visit began with a haunted tour that took guests on an exploration of the entire ship. Every ghostly experience is documented on a sign plastered to the walls throughout the ship.
We visited the library where housekeepers claimed to have met a classy woman.
We stepped into an active room that received so many complaints its been shut down.
We walked up a staircase that was said to be home to some dressy gentlemen.
We then moved to a more historic tour of the ship that talked about its history on the water. The Queen Mary served as a cruise ship as well as a soldier transport.
The ship even features an enormous replica make entirely out of Legos! We also discovered that the Queen Mary is twice the size of the Titanic! So, we walked a lot.
We were able to walk around the engine room and discover the inner workings of the ship and see examples of what the guest rooms used to look like during its cruise and transport days.
Overall, the tour was very interesting. The ship also offers a Princess Diana tea time exploration that was currently down for renovations. So, if you’re ever in the Long Beach area and are brave enough to stay on the ship or just take a look around, you can book your experience here!
