LONG BEACH — To celebrate the beginning of Queen Mary’s 80th year, the stationary attraction will host “Queen Mary’s Ultimate New Year’s Eve Voyage” — billed as “a celebratory journey through the majestic ocean liner’s most exotic destinations during her 30 years of remarkable service.”
Highlights of the simulated cruise will include “arrivals” at five different ports — each with a signature cocktail and entertainment from that destination. “Stops” include Bombay, India; Rio de Janiero, Brazil; New York City; Cherborg, France; and Clydebank, Scotland, where Queen Mary was launched in 1934.
“Tourist Class” boarding passes are $99 per person and include general admission to Tourist Class decks, salons and bars — featuring live bands, strolling entertainers and DJs, plus a party favor and midnight fireworks. Optional upgrades include bottle service and a New Year’s Day brunch.
“First Class VIP” passes are $199 per person and include access to all VIP and Tourist Class decks, salons and bars, with live bands, strolling entertainers and DJs, plus four cocktails, a premium party favor and a “premier view” of midnight fireworks. Optional upgrades include bottle service and a New Year’s Day brunch.
Stay-aboard hotel packages are available starting at $199 — and a variety of dinner options are available (from casual dining to a buffet or a five-course gourmet supper) at Queen Mary’s onboard restaurants and the Grand Ballroom. The event also offers a wide array of VIP seating options for couples, small groups or parties of up 30 people.
