LONG BEACH REOPENS QUEEN MARY
After 2+ years of being closed to the public, the city has reopened the Queen Mary to limited tours. They graciously invited QMI board members, Kate Vescera and Brendan Ryan to join a tour. Commodore Everett took a small group around the promenade deck (the rest of the ship is still closed for renovations and filming).
Overall the ship looked to be better cared for than we'd seen her in a while, the lighting was improved, everything looked like it had been treated to a deep clean.
One thing of note that excited us was the upcoming refresh of the Observation Bar! Signage indicated new flooring and furniture was being selected to replace the tired looking current fitment of this iconic room. This will greatly elevate the visible condition of the ship and do a lot to enhance the experience of being onboard. QMI commends the city for this decision.
We'll be updating in the near future with more in depth focuses on upgrades to the ship! Check back for more.
