NENA 2012 Spouse & Guest Tour: Behind the Scenes of the Queen Mary
Share |

Monday, June 11 & Tuesday, June 12 | 1:30PM – 4:30PM

From the time the Queen Mary’s construction began in 1930 in Clydebank, Scotland, she was destined to stand in a class all her own. Upon her maiden voyage in 1936 the Queen Mary was considered the grandest ship ever built, and she carried some of the world’s most renowned personalities and political leaders.

In 1939, at the start of the World War II, the Queen Mary was drafted into service and outfitted as a troopship. Deemed the "Grey Ghost” due to her new camouflaged grey exterior, she joined the Allied Forces and played a crucial role in their success. When the war ended, she was restored to her former glory and continued passenger service.

Sign up for this guided walking tour to get a behind the scenes look into the ship’s history — from her construction and launch to her passenger service and days as a troopship. Also included in your ticket: the Self-Guided Shipwalk Tour, Queen Mary Historical Exhibit, the Ghosts & Legends Show, and the Self-Guided Tour of the Russian Submarine Scorpion.
