Click here to see YouTube Videos of Queen Mary including the Engine Room.

The Queen Mary was most luxurious and technologically advanced ocean liner at the time when it was built in 1934. We will have this unique opportunity to see what it was like to work in the then-state-of- the-art controls on one of the largest ships ever built.

In the Engine Room we will see the huge boiler tanks that produced enough steam for the turbine engines to propel the ship to speed records for transatlantic crossings held for 14 years. We will visit the ship's bridge and the propeller box to see the last remaining propeller on the Queen Mary. Come before the tour if you can and see the rest of this magnificent 12-deck ship. Its unique restaurants and other locations house one of the world's single largest collections of original Art Deco works and décor. Source of information:
