    Realize that the Queen Mary...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    is by far the biggest tourist trap of Long Beach and ain't all what its cracked up to be. Despite the glorious history of the shipliner (and history is something that I rather appreciate), I am not quite in so much awe over the Queen Mary. Many other locals and tourists aren't as much either , as it is struggling with stay afloat (well, really, it stays parked in the ocean). Financially, QM is hanging on by a thread. Hopefully, it will keep hanging on and get a new marketing strategy. The tours of Queen Mary are ridiculously overpriced and too confusing for the shipliner's own good. I attempt to explain prices below.

    Unique Suggestions: All access package is $29.95, including the Ghosts and Legends of the Queen Mary tour, exhibit areas,self-guided shipwalk, guided WW II tour and the Scorpion Submarine tour.

    However, there are also individual entry admissions for the "Haunted Encounters Passport" (which has a few other attractions not mentioned before) and a general Queen Mary visit.

    See pricing at QM website:
    http://www.queenmary.com/attractions.php?page=prices

    So, one is left to wonder which admission price is best to purchase. The best deal is probably the combination package for the ship and Aquarium of the Pacific. Entry prices are $34 for adults, $19.00 for kids for both attractions.

    Queen Mary's people should just make it easier on us folks and just charge one all-inclusive price for admission , maybe $30 (adult) for everything to see and do. Well, just consider the options and go for one !

    For adults, Queen Mary does serves as a fun night spot. There are several club nights that take place, like for reggae, brazilian, hip hop and pop music.

    You will find many machines like this al over California (also you can find in other destinations, as In Paris) to get a coin with the design of that tourist attraction.

    As it was the first one we saw, we tried it!!

    This one is inside the Queen Mary
