The Queen Mary

Spent the week in sunny California – Anaheim area. One highlight of the trip was getting to visit the Queen Mary.

Interestingly, the city of Long Beach owns the Queen Mary, and purchased it for $3.45 million – considerably more than it’s scrap value in 1967. It now leases it out to various entities, where it’s used for an amazingly diverse set of things – tours, a hotel, private banquets, shops, restaurants, night clubs, a multimedia “ghosts tour”, and even a spa. Needless to say, it was a very successful restoration project, even though much of the ship was reconfigured to accommodate it’s current day needs.
