Queen Mary location is a hit!
With so many on-board attractions to go to and all the attractions nearby it is truly a unique family destination or a romantic getaway!
Welcome to the Ms. America Pageant 2019. The pageant will be a 3-day pageant between August 22-24, 2019 on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.
As you may know, The Queen Mary hosted her first passengers back in 1936, but now this “Grand Lady” is permanently docked in the Long Beach Harbor and continues to extend her hospitality to thousands each year. You may stay in a guestroom once occupied by Hollywood stars, European Royalty, Queen Elizabeth or Winston Churchill himself. Either way, contestants do not just attend an event or stay in a hotel room – they become part of history and the excitement that surrounds her. Full of fun and educational tours, exhibits and events, the Queen Mary offers something for everyone making it the perfect destination for a family getaway!
