Visitors can spend the night in one of the ship’s 346 suites and staterooms, but even if you’re not an overnight guest, you can have a meal, cocktails, or afternoon tea in one ofQueen Mary’s restaurants and bars; the Observation Bar, located in the former first-class lounge, is a favorite for its classic 1930s art deco flavor.
The ship offers multiple themed tours, including a ghost tour and a “steam and steel” option that takes you into the boiler and engine rooms. Visitors can also take a self-guided tour and choose from an array of optional activities and exhibits. Tours of theQueen Mary are included in the Go Los Angeles Card and often on tours focused on Los Angeles’ beaches. You can also get a bird’s-eye view of the ship on a helicopter tour from Long Beach.
