I've been visiting the QUEEN MARY since 1973 and it's a lot of fun. It's been operated by several companies over the years and the current operator is handing it well. It's an ocean liner, not a cruise ship, so the walls are thin and there's little sound insulation installed, so noise can be a problem. If you want perfect silence, then go somewhere else. For more tolerant people, cabins are well appointed, and are mostly original. Get a cabin on the starboard (right) side of the ship for the best views and quietest stay, the QM is moored at the corner of the Port of Los Angeles, so there is constant noise and light from the operations at the port. Even the inner cabins are good, but they have no windows and are smaller than the outside cabins. If you can afford it, the historical suites are availible. These are rooms connected with various famous passengers and are part of the guided tour when they aren't occupied. If you've ever wanted to stay in a museum, this is for you. It's pleasent and I plan to return for another mini-vacation at the QUEEN MARY next year.
