HistoryThe former luxury ocean liner and WWII military transport clocked a thousand and one trips across the Atlantic before settling in its current home. The elegant lady's maiden voyage departed from South Hampton, England in 1936. From 1940 to 1944, the ship was deployed as a military transport. It returned to luxury cruise service after the war. The Queen Mary was retired in 1967 and opened as a hotel and exhibit in Long Beach in 1971.
