Since I love history, my husband suggested we stay on the Queen Mary during our visit to the LA area the last week of June. The ship is quite impressive as you pull up to it. You are greeted by very professional staff members who make you feel very welcome. The ship is impressive in all of the wood used. The halls (which seem endless!) are lined in varnished wood paneling; the shopping arcade is attractive; one of the walking decks has been turned into a very nice restaurant and there are other restaurants and a cafe on board. Our outside state room was impressive in it's size. The bathroom looked very "dated", but it was fun to immerse yourself in how it would have been for the well-to-do on board in the mid-1930's. We did not take a walking tour, but did wander the entire ship to see all of the areas that have been left untouched such as the captain's quarters, the bridge and the sick bay. The cost of staying on the ship is comparable to nice hotels and well worth it for the novelty.
