A Russian sub next to a British ocean liner? Anyway, having been on a submarine in the US Navy I couldn't pass this up. Gift shop had an extensive collection of 'stuff'.

We purchased a Queen Mary package (there are lots to pick from so review on line before you go) that included the submarine as an option and the USS Iowa battleship (which is about 7 miles away at another pier). The packages are good deals if you are sure what you want to see. The submarine is right next to... More

This is our second time at The Queen Mary, and chill. Got the package deal with the chill tickets. This year the chill was smaller, they still had the ice skating but the giant rocking horse was gone. My kids where really looking forward to get on it this year. Also the ID photo tickets were awesome so sad that... More

Was there with family. First went to see the Soviet submarine. Very funny for me, a Russian citizen to see an awkward submarine with so many scary explanations about its danger and threat. Seems to me that this exhibit is to show how unhelpful are the Russians. Actually you haven't seen a real monster. Anyway, after that we visited Queen... More

It is pretty interesting to get on board of the submarine. Real Soviet submarine of 70-ies. I wish it would be kept in better condition. The audio tour is recorded by some person with exaggerated Russian accent - so bad you get tired of this. There are so many people come to see it. Place is covered with trash inside.... More

It was interesting to see just how tiny their accommodations were. Lots and lots of buttons lol. This was combined with the Princess Diana tour and I'm glad I did it.

The self guided tour of the Scorpion was great. Even though this was a relatively modern era Russian Sub it was still very primitive and cramped compared to the U. S. versions.

Of the Queen Mary and the sub, I much preferred the sub! It was great fun to crawl through, and interesting to see all the controls and living quarters etc. It took about half an hour to go through the whole thing (it's a one way route since the passages are so narrow).

It was free with our tour package, but I wouldn't have wanted to pay for it. Once you've seen one sub, you've seen them all.

Time was of the essence so it was a quick tour. This was not a bad thing as anyone who does not like confined spaces would love to not visit or possibly quickly in and out. Crawling through the small hatches and seeing how the occupants lived in the very cramped conditions was surprising. The crew would have to be... More
