My boys are Titanic Crazy, so we thought this would be a great place to stay during our pilgrimage to Disney Land. When we surprised them in the parking lot that we were actually staying on-board, my 6 year old said, 'this is the greatest day of my life!"
Staying on-board included a complimentary self guided tour of the ship. By far, the biggest hit for the boys was the engine room, propeller,and bridge. The front desk handed us a comparison sheet of the Titanic to the QM and QM2
Be advised to go into this stay with the right mind-set. It is a 1936 ocean liner, after all. The family suite was actually spacious for a ship, but is no-frills. There is no coffee maker, and not an over-abundance of furniture - just the basics (2 beds, table, two chairs, and TV). The bathroom is retro.
Per the advice of other Trip-Advisors, we did request starboard (bay side) and got two functioning portholes looking back toward Long Beach and the channel. The walls are very 'thin' as often mentioned, and we could here normal conversation from the next door room, but it wasn't horrible.
We did eat on-board at the Promenade Cafe for dinner and found the food to be okay. We had to hit the on-board Starbucks for our morning Coffee.
