The Queen Mary
Once a luxury liner, this 1936 cruise ship now sits in Long Beach since 1968, acting as a hotel, restaurant, and semi-tourist trap. Although it still has some of the trappings of its former glorious self, it is definitely in need of a sugar daddy who can do a first-class restoration. Figuratively drifting along without a real mission, it would appear that the owners are doing the best that they can to make a buck. However, it is obvious that this “plan” is not really working too well. I sure hope this piece of floating history is able to be stablized and restored.
