Queen Mary Salutes U.S. Military Personnel
2009-05-10 · By Editor
Everyday is Memorial Day at the Queen Mary this May! The Queen Mary is offering a special discount price of just $5 General Admission to all U.S. Military personnel, both active and retired, for the entire month of May. In addition, anyone accompanying someone with a military ID, but not in the military themselves, will receive a discount off the regular General Admission price too.
General Admission includes a self-guided tour and Ghosts & Legends. Military personnel must provide their military ID during normal attraction operating hours – 10am to 6pm – to receive this special discount. Parking not included.
“We are grateful to our U.S. military for their service to our country and we felt that this would be our own way of saying thank you to them for all they do for us,” said Queen Mary General Manager, Jay Primavera. The Queen Mary served as a troop carrier for five years during World War II so is herself, a military veteran.
While aboard, guests can experience the largest collection of Art Deco artwork in the country. They can also choose between many guided tours, including the Behind-the-Scenes, Historic World War II and an array of ghostly paranormal tours. Tours sold separately.
In addition to a variety of specialty boutiques, guests can enjoy fine dining at the Five-Star Sir Winston’s restaurant, fresh seafood specialties at the Four-Star Chelsea restaurant or all-day dining specials at the Promenade Cafe. 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.
Tour 300 feet of Cold War menace aboard the Russian Submarine, “The Scorpion”, which is partnering with the Queen Mary by also offering a special $ 5. admission price to military personnel during the month of May.
