Queen Mary History
The RMS Queen Mary celebrated her eightieth birthday late in 2014. She’s a remarkable vessel with over 1,000 Atlantic Crossings with passengers that included Kings and Queens, Prime Ministers and Presidents, tycoons, engineers, scientists, attorneys, artists, dreamers and schemers — and the dreadfully poor (loaded with hope for a better life in America).
The Queen weights in at 82,000 tons and is bigger than the Titanic. In 1969 she was “decommissioned” and sold to the City of Long Beach. To learn more about the Queen, please visit her website
