IN PICTURES: An old-fashioned Christmas on the Queen Mary • Long Beach Post

It was a good old-fashioned Christmas on the festive decks of the Queen Mary, with carolers, musical performances and Santa, with an 80-foot Christmas tree festooned with more than 45,000 LED lights. Visitors can explore the Gingerbread Village and Stocking Shop, catch a special screening of “The Polar Express” in our 4-D Theater and glide along on an ice skating rink.
