Queen Mary salutes U.S. Military personnel with free admission
2010-05-27 · By Editor
Celebrate Memorial Day at the Queen Mary this May! The Queen Mary is offering free General Admission to all U.S. Military personnel, both active and retired, over Memorial Day weekend. General Admission includes a self-guided tour and the Ghosts & Legends Show. The offer is valid Saturday, May 29 through Monday, May 31, 2010.
“As the Queen Mary has a history that includes military service, it is only fitting that we provide veterans and active military members the chance to experience the ship and all it has to offer,” said Queen Mary General Manager, Uwe Roggenthien. The Queen Mary served as a troop carrier for five years during World War II so is herself, a military veteran.
Weekend activities include two song and dance tributes, Salute to America and WWII Swing Time Review, performed on the Sun Deck Stage each day, a balloon artist, magician, face painter, juggler and more.
Military personnel must provide their military ID during normal attraction operating hours – 10am to 6pm – to receive free General Admission. Parking not included.
While on board, guests can take one of our many guided tours including the Behind-the-Scenes and Historic World War II Tours and discover even more about the Queen Mary. Additional tours are sold separately. Also available are a variety of shops, seven restaurants and lounges and several exhibits. Finish off your day in the 1930’s-style Art Deco Observation Bar, as you enjoy a spectacular ocean and skyline view of Long Beach.
The Queen Mary is located at the south end of the 710 freeway, on the water in Long Beach. Visit the Queen Mary website.
