Queen Mary Offers International Celebration for New Year’s Eve

Queen Mary New Year's Eve FireworksLeave your passport at home; this New Year’s Eve around-the-world-party only requires a ticket to the Queen Mary. Regally berthed in Long Beach harbor since 1967 she will again host an epic night of entertainment festivities and culinary adventures inspired by international destinations; five hours of dining, dancing and toasting aboard three acres of floating maritime history, as New Orleans, Moscow, Beijing, Tokyo and Hollywood celebrate 2016 as only the Queen Mary can.

The Promenade Deck will evoke Bourbon Street at Mardi Gras, vibrating with the sounds of New Orleans Jazz spiced by Cajun cuisine and Hurricanes, the city’s famous rum-filled concoction raised high in the hands of bead-wearing revelers.  Trade the Hurricane toasts for Moscow Mules in the Royal Salon, transformed to Red Square and a Russian celebration with DJ Mickey O spinning Hip Hop backed by dazzling aerialists.  Good fortune and Chinese traditions await those on the Sports Deck where dragon dancers, lion dancers and a Kung Fu show will welcome the New Year, Beijing-style. Tokyo-bound guests will liberate their inner dancer on the Queen’s Verandah Deck turned ‘Tokyo at Night’ featuring a Hip Hop Dance Show and DJ Barbie’s Top 40 hits. Sushi, sakitinis and karaoke complete the Japanese adventure.
