I stayed on the Queen Mary for 6 nights while attending a conference at the Long Beach Convention Center. It is great if you like a vintage experience; if you prefer modern amenities, it probably isn't for you. The ship is impressive and this is a large part of the appeal. My room was a deluxe king which was very spacious and had a fantastic porthole view over the harbor. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was a nice desk space for work. The bathroom is definitely of an older variety, but there was plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. Though be prepared - the tub is more narrow than you think. The toilet is a bit unusual - you need to flush it a lot (the flushometer is on the wall!) But overall, the room was great, with the only challenge being the noise from neighboring rooms. Also note that the hallways on the ship are long.
Only ate on the ship for breakfast, but this was excellent. Also, the bar is open late which was nice, even for a cup of tea.
It is worth exploring the various parts of the ship as it is beautiful. If visiting Long Beach again, I would definitely stay on the Queen Mary.
