  • The tour was ok not the best as the boat is under removations so there were areas we could not go. Not at all value for the price

  • The ship is quite a throwback in time. We didn't give it 5 stars only because we could not do the audio tour or the submarine, both were under construction. We stayed two nights, the first night was quiet and we slept well. Second night had noisy kids next door. Unfortunately there wasn't anything we could do about that.
    Food was tasty but expensive. Loved the happy hour in the observation lounge. Wanted food but the kitchen was closed the first day. After other guests complained it was opened on the second day but we already had dinner plans and didn't try the food there.
    Good time, enjoyed the haunted tour. I recommend trying the Queen Mary, it was fun.

  • It was a very enjoyable and informativo trip.

  • Fantastic experience to have been abord such an icon. There were lots to see, however, as the ship also doubles up as a Hotel there were many areas that were not accessable. Could have spent a lot more time in the engine room.

  • We purchased a first class passport for our tour of the Queen Mary. This enabled us to do our own walking tour of the ship, plus a guided behind the scenes tour. It also included 2 movies in the theater, but we did not have time to do this. The guided tour was interesting, with a lot of informative facts about the history of the Queen Mary. The ship was beautiful, with it's art deco design and old world ambience. We spent 4 hours touring the Queen Mary - there is a lot to see. A very worthwhile activity while visiting Long Beach.

  • Excellent tour. Must do when in LA. Guide made the historical tour interesting and fun and the true life story videos were excellent.

  • Awesome for history buffs. We had the Grand Passport and got to see parts of the ship you will not see with a regular pass. The lower decks are not all that safe so you need to be careful. We spent the entire day here. Not sure how authentic some of the gowns were in Princess Diana Exhibit but they did give a good idea of what they might be like.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our day. We bought the Grand Passport and used all the options we had except the audio tour which just didn't work into our day. There is a lot to see so a full day is best. Haunted encounters brought us below where you would not have access to unless you have this tour. Found it not that safe in places so you must be careful

  • The Queen Mary tour in itself was wonderful. We booked this particular tour because it also offered the tour of the Russian Submarine. However, when we arrived, we were informed the submarine was closed due to restoration, which has been going on for the past year. The website needs to be updated, asap!

  • nice piece of history
