The Queen Mary’s Ultimate New Year’s Eve ‘Voyage’

December 8, 2013 — Leave a comment

Since pulling into Long Beach Harbor in 1967, the Queen Mary’s travel days have been confined to history…until now. The eve of December 31st will relaunch the retired ocean-liner to her voyaging days with a one-night world cruise – The Ultimate New Year’s Eve ‘Voyage’. “Passengers” will be transported to the vibrant streets of India, carnival nights in Brazil, the extravagant Moulin Rouge in France, and Times Square in New York before returning to the ship’s beginning, a village in Scotland. For those who’ve dreamed of celebrating the New Year abroad – now you can, without ever leaving Long Beach.

The sights, sounds, and tastes will transform throughout the night, as the ship’s horn announces the arrival in a new Port of Call. Bombay’s henna, hookah pipes, and spice-filled cuisine will give way to Samba and the brightly feathered dancers of Rio’s Carnival. As one festival ends, the sound of the Rockettes kick off another fete, transporting revelers to a Manhattan state of mind. The skyline fades as the horn signals France and the decks of the Queen Mary overflow with can-can skirts and Kir Royals.

The Ultimate New Year’s Eve ‘Voyage’ reclaims the Glory Days with an all-night celebration not to be forgotten. “Cruise-goers will be exposed to a world of entertainment and adventure, without ever leaving Long Beach. Music, costumes, cocktails, food, and activities all expertly chosen to create a New Year’s soiree like no other,” says Steve Sheldon, Director of Entertainment Events.
