What says luxury more than a trip aboard one of the most expensive and most elegant ships ever to grace the seas? Making its maiden voyage
in 1936, the Queen Mary boasted the most well-appointed rooms, dining areas, pools, ballrooms and more. During its time, it was the only way that the rich and famous would consider traveling, and the Queen Mary quickly grew its reputation for luxury, elegance and style.
Since 1967, however, the Queen Mary is no longer making trips across the ocean. Instead, it sits in southern California as a floating hotel and attraction, though the word luxury can still be used to describe this beautiful ship. If you are looking for a luxurious weekend, then book a full suite for a weekend aboard the Queen Mary. While it comes with all the modern amenities, it hasn’t lost any of its original art deco charm.
Once you’ve checked into your suit, tour the ship, go shopping or visit the Queen Mary Spa for a Swedish massage or a facial. While you are there, you should get a look into a truly elegant life and visit the Princess Diana Collection aboard the Queen Mary. The collection includes nine of Princess Diana’s dresses and gowns as well as handwritten letters, personal photographs, a recreation of Diana’s wedding bouquet, plus so much more.
For dinner, make a reservation at Sir Winston’s Restaurant and Lounge, for five star dining right aboard the Queen Mary. Or head over to the Observation Bar and Art Deco Lounge, which originally was the first-class lounge when the Queen Mary was still in operation. Today, you can enjoy a classic cocktail and relax among the Art Deco style and enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Ocean.
This luxurious trip is made even more special when you head out on the open road in your C250 Luxury Sedan from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll enjoy the sleek lines and true elegance of your Mercedes as you make your way to the Queen Mary, and then you can keep that luxury going through your whole weekend vacation.
