Queen Mary Long Beach, CA

Our 2015 Reunion will be on board the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA.  Thursday, 01 OCT 2015 until Sunday, 04 OCT 2015.  The Queen Mary will offer discounted rates from Tuesday, 29 SEPT. through Tuesday, 06 OCT.

We all had a great time at our 2014 Reunion in Pensacola last year and it looks like John Lewis has arranged more of the same on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.  We will have an opportunity to reunite with shipmates and old friends for a few days of great food, events and sightseeing.  Queen Mary has a great history of Trans-Atlantic service to the “Rich & Famous” in pre-WWII years and as a troop transport during the Second World War.  She was capable of transporting 16,000 soldiers to England at each sailing.

Reserving rooms aboard the Queen Mary

Rooms may be reserved online or by phone.  The basic room is $100 and is a very nice inboard cabin.  We can upgrade our room choice and there is an appropriate discount for the upgraded rooms.  We have a limited number of rooms(30) guaranteed to be available – so don’t wait too long to reserve.  After our guaranteed number of rooms are booked, further reservations may be made on an “As Available” basis.
