Scheduled tours are now fullThe City of Long Beach is proud to welcome visitors back onboard the RMS Queen Mary, beginning Dec. 15, 2022, for the first time since March 2020. To celebrate the reopening of select elements of the ship, and to thank the community for their patience and support during the ship’s closure, the City will offer free guided tours to the public for a limited time.
During the one-hour tour, visitors will be guided by a historical docent where they will experience select areas of the Queen Mary’s Promenade Deck and scenic views of the Downtown shoreline, including a walk through the Promenade Shops, Observation Bar, Queen Salon and Royal Salon, among other areas. Tour participants will learn about the ship’s history – including its haunted history – and will also watch a short video inside Heritage Hall featuring the critical repair work conducted to the ship throughout 2022.
Thank you for your interest in the free guided tours of the Queen Mary, available for the public for a limited time. Due to popular demand, all scheduled tours are now full. We appreciate the community interest and excitement in this opportunity and we look forward to welcoming more visitors back on board when additional elements of the ship reopen in 2023.
If you or anyone in your party are feeling sick, it is important to stay home until you feel better and avoid close contact with others. With respiratory viruses such as the flu and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) currently circulating at higher rates than usual for this time of year, and with COVID-19 cases steadily increasing, the City strongly recommends that people who are scheduled for a tour not attend if feeling ill. The Health Department strongly recommends that people wear a mask when indoors, especially those who are at high risk for severe disease and after close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 or is known to be sick.
Tours will begin promptly at their listed times. Registrants should arrive for their tour 15 minutes prior to the start time. Late arrivals will not be allowed to join the tour. Tours are ADA accessible.
