Once a luxurious ocean liner, today The Queen Mary is home to a hotel, restaurants, and numerous exhibits.

A variety of other tours are available, such as an exploration of the ship’s haunted past and a journey into the historic submarine. After getting your fill of history, browse some of the stores. A nautical-themed gift makes a great souvenir. Don’t leave without sampling some of the onboard drinking and dining options.

  • Definitely worth the time. Definitely take a tour or you could get lost. We enjoyed the Princess Dianna exhibit, lots of Royal Family memorabilia. 
  • Anyone who was disappointed with this year's Chill is just not realistic in expectation. First of all, the whole Alice in Winterland theme was done in spectacular fashion If you are a designer or even...  more »

  • 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.
