  • This ship is tired and it shows inside and out. But at the same time it reveals great glimpses into history. This was the grand lady of the sea back in the day. Must have been truly special to travel ...  more »
  • To set the mood of the time of this legendary ship which has lost none of its beauty with its bar, wood, his command, his room machines. The entry price is not given.

  • I visited the Queen Mary for Dark Harbor and found the experience to be quite enjoyable. The event starts at 7pm and lasts until 12am. They had six mazes that people can traverse, these were more fun than scary though. During the wait for the mazes they had many different performers to keep everyone entertained. Also, there was plenty of actors roaming the harbor to scare your friends and they were quite good and always stayed in character. Dark harbor even had some entertaining rides.
  • Very spooky appearance. Great use of the hull for Dark Harbor. Cool effects and makeup. Lots of food vendors. Poor organization of people. The line to get in was insane. They confiscated my small, innocent snack without reason or warning before I was allowed entrance. For the hassle and the waste of time, I don't think it's worth the money for Dark Harbor. NEVER doing it again.
  • My mom and I had a great time on the Queen Mary this weekend. my mom loved the Princess Diana exhibit and we really enjoyed the self-guided tour the food at the lunch place was really good. the shops inside the main lobby were really cute we enjoyed the history and also the hospitality of the workers there and we will definitely be going back
  • A nostalgic experience to stay in a 100 years old ship. All antique furniture and equipment (like bathroom facets, air conditioner ducts) are preserved. Everything in the room works although water pressure is bit low. That don't matter at all. The ship stays in harbor but takes you back in time. It is priceless.
  • The Halloween attraction Dark Harbor, is so good, and awesome. We had a lot of fun. With scare mazes, performers and beautiful (and scary) props, makeup and costumes.
