Tri Hull Bass
RMS Queen Mary
Construction and naming
With Germany will present their Bremen and Europa in operation, the British do not stay in the shipbuilding race. White Star Line began construction of its 60,000 tons in 1928, Oceanic, while Cunard's planned 75,000 tonnes a nameless ship of their own.
The construction of the ship, then only as known "Hull Number 534", began in December 1930 on the River Clyde from the John Brown & Company Shipbuilding and Engineering shipyard Clydebank Scotland. The work was Applied in December 1931 stopped due to the Great Depression and Cunard, completed the British government for a loan up to 534th The loan was granted, with enough money fully to the Queen Mary and a running mate, hull No. 552 Building, which would be the Queen Elizabeth. A condition of the loan was that Cunard would the White Star Line, Cunard was the chief British rival at the time and the combination has already been forced by the world economic crisis to build on its Oceanic cancel. Both lines agreed and the merger was completed in April 1934. Work on the Queen Mary once again, and she was on 26 launched September 1934. Completion ultimately lasted three years and cost 3 million pounds sterling in total. A large part of the vessel interior was designed and constructed by the Bromsgrove Guild.
The ship was under Queen Mary, consort of King George V was up to its launch of the name it was given to be kept a closely guarded secret known. The legend says that to Cunard, the ship named "Victoria" Companies in line with the tradition of giving its ships names ending in "ia". However, when company representatives asked the king for permission to name the ocean liner after Britain's "Greatest Queen", he said his wife, Queen Mary, should be delighted. And so the legend goes, the delegation was of course no other choice than to report that No. 534 would be RMS Queen Mary. This story was denied by representatives of the Company and the names of the traditional ruler for the Capital ships of the Royal Navy used. Some support for the story was provided by Washington Post editor Felix Morley who, as guest of the Cunard Line at the 1936 maiden voyage The Queen Mary sailed. In his autobiography published in 1979 "For the Record, Morley wrote that he was brought to the table with Sir Percy Bates, chairman of the Cunard Line. Bates told him the story of the naming of the ship "on the condition, you will not print it in my lifetime." The name could also Queen Mary was decided on as a compromise between Cunard and White Star Line, Cunard, which recently merged, had both lines tradition of using names either with the suffix "ic" with White Star and "ia" with Cunard.
Queen Mary 1936
It was a Clyde turbine steamer named Queen Mary, the Cunard White Star an agreement with the owners that the existing steamer would be renamed TS Queen Mary II, and in 1934 the new ship was Queen Mary, as the RMS Queen Mary launched. On their way down the ramp, was the Queen Mary slowing of eighteen chains, reviewed the progress made in the liner the Clyde, part of which had been expanded to accommodate the start.
As she drove to her maiden voyage from Southampton, England on 27th May 1936, it was by Sir Edgar T. Britten, who appoint the master of Cunard White Star, while the ship had been commanded, was under construction at the John Brown shipyard. The Queen Mary had a gross tonnage (GT) of 80 774 tonnes, its rival, Normandie, the originally projected 79 280 tonnes, had been changed last winter to increase its size to 83 243 GT (An enclosed tourist lounge was on the rear deck in the area where the game court was built), and therefore held the title of largest cruise ship. The Queen Mary drove at high speed for most of its maiden voyage to New York, to heavy fog forced a reduction of speed on the last day of the crossing.
The Observation Lounge Bar The windows were once part of the enclosed promenade deck turnaround, the lounge was expanded after 1967 on.
The Queen Mary's design was than to traditional criticism, especially if the hull of the Normandie was formed with a hair clipper, slender arch revolutionary. Besides her cruiser stern, she seemed simply an enhanced version of its Cunard predecessors from before the First World War. Your interior, especially during the Art Deco, still seemed restrained and conservative, when compared to the ultra-modern French liner. However, proved to be the Queen Mary, the ship be more popular than their larger competitors in terms of passengers.
In August 1936 Queen Mary captured the Blue Riband from Normandie, with an average speed of 30.14 knots (55.82 hours kilometers) west and east of 30.63 Nodes. Normandy has been renovated with a new set of propellers in 1937 and reclaimed the honor, but in 1938 Queen Mary took back the Blue Riband in both directions with an average Speed of 30.99 knots (57.39 hours kilometers) west and east of 31.69 knots, records that stood to lose at the SS United States in 1952.

World War II
Arrival at the Port of New York, 20 June 1945, with thousands of U.S. troops.
End of August 1939 was running the Queen Mary on a return from New York to Southampton. The international situation led to it by the battle cruiser HMS Hood with the escort. They arrived safely, and again set to New York on 1 September. When they arrived, the Second World War began, and she was ordered to the port until further next stay in Normandy. In 1940, the Queen Mary and Normandy were in New York joined Queen Mary's new running mate Queen Elizabeth, fresh from her secret Dash from Clydebank. The three largest liner in the world sat idle for some time, until the Allied commanders decided that all three ships used as a troop carrier could be (unfortunately the Normandy would be destroyed by fire during its transformation troop carrier). The Queen Mary left New York to Sydney, where they carry along with several other liners, was converted into a troop carrier in Australia and New Zealand soldiers in the United Kingdom. During the conversion her hull, superstructure and funnels were painted navy gray. Inside, stateroom furniture and decoration have been removed and replaced with triple-tiered bunks (the later of Admission bunks would be replaced). had six miles of carpet, 220 cases of porcelain, crystal and silver service, tapestries and paintings removed and stored for the duration of the war. The woodwork in the cabins were moved into the first class dining room and other public areas with leather. Finally came the troop Service from Queen Elizabeth, the two ships were the largest and fastest troop ships involved in the war, often with no less than 15,000 men in a single Journey, and often traveling from convoy and without escort. Their high speed means that it was difficult for U boats to catch them.
On 2 October 1942, Queen Mary accidentally sank one of her companions, slicing through the light cruiser HMS Curacoa off the Irish coast, with the loss of 338 lives. Because of the constant threat of U-boats attacked, at Aboard the Queen Mary Captain Gordon C. Illingworth was under strict orders not to stop for any reason, the Royal Navy destroyer accompanied the queen ordered on course to and stay not to save any survivors.
The front section of the Queen Mary was great with new windows and anti-aircraft guns seen here in Long Beach.
In the December 1942, the Queen Mary carrying out 16 082 U.S. troops from New York to Britain, standing record for the most passengers ever transported on a ship. During 700 miles from Scotland during a storm, she was suddenly a leaflet that Rogue Wave have achieved high, can hit 28 feet (ft 92). A report through this intersection in Walter Ford Carter's book is found, No Greater Sacrifice, No Greater Love. Carter's father, Dr. Norval Carter, part of the 110th Station Hospital on board at the time, wrote that at one point the "Queen Mary" damned near capsized ... a moment the top deck was at its usual height and then, swoom! Down, and she would appreciate bad luck. "It was later that the ship tilted 52 degrees calculated and would be overturned, it would have rolled another 3 degrees. The incident inspired Paul Gallico to write his story, The Poseidon Adventure, which later made into a film of the same name with the Queen Mary as a stand-in for the SS Poseidon.
During the war, led the Queen Mary, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill across the Atlantic to meet with colleagues and allied forces Officials on several occasions, he would be listed on the passenger side manifesto as "Colonel Warden" and insisted that the lifeboat to him with a machine gun 0.303 fitted, so that to resist it, "gather to forgive any cost."
After the Second World War
The Queen Mary in Southampton, June 1956
From September 1946 to July 1947 was for the Queen Mary converted passenger service, air conditioning and upgrading their bunk configuration to 711 first class, 707 cabin and 577 tourist-class-class passengers. After conversion, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth dominated the transatlantic passenger trade as Cunard White Star ship two weekly Express Service is provided through the second half of the 1940s and 1950s until well into the years. They proved to be very profitable for Cunard. But in 1958 began the first transatlantic flight of a jet a whole new era of competition for the Cunard Queens. On some trips, especially in winter, Queen Mary sailed into port with a crew more than passengers. (But left her and her sister Queen Elizabeth still averaged over 1,000 passengers per crossing in the mid 1960s.) Until 1965, the Cunard fleet a trail of red ink. In the hope to continue to finance its still under construction Queen Elizabeth 2, Cunard pledged the bulk of the fleet. Finally, after a Combination of age, lack of public interest, inefficiency in a new market, and the harmful effects of the national strike by seamen, Cunard announced that both the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth from service (that would be Elizabeth retirement service would leave one year later) and were to be sold. Many offers were submitted, but it was Long Beach, California, beating the Japanese scrap dealers. And so was Queen Mary retired from service in 1967, while their running mate Queen Elizabeth was withdrawn in 1968. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 took place on the transatlantic route in 1969.
The Queen Mary in Long Beach
The Queen Mary from the north side of the Port Long Beach
After her retirement in 1967, she steamed to Long Beach, California, where it is permanently moored as a tourist attraction. Of 1983 to 1993, the Queen Mary by Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose, which was accompanied by a large dome nearby (the dome is now used by Carnival Cruise Lines as a ship terminal be used, and previously as a sound stage) situated.
As had started drilling for oil in Long Beach Harbor, had some of the revenue set aside in the "mud flats launched Oil Fund. "Some of this money was allocated in 1958 for the future purchase of a Maritime Museum for Long Beach.
If the Queen Mary was purchased by Long Beach, they decided that the ship would not host and an icon for the preservation of their will as an ocean liner. It was decided to clear almost all areas of the ship below C-deck (deck called R to decrease after 1950, passenger confusion of all the restaurants on "R" Deck) were to make room for to make the museum. This would increase museum space to 400,000 square meters. It required removal of all boilers, the forward engine room, both turbo generator room, the ship's stabilizers and water softening plant. The ship's fuel tanks were empty now as the local mud, which would keep the ship center of gravity and design at the right level because these critical factors had fulfilled affected by the removal of all the different components and structure. Only the rear of the engine room and "Shaft Alley", on the Stern of the ship, would be spared from the cutter's torch. Remaining Space would be used for storage or office space. A problem arose that during the changeover a dispute between land and maritime unions was based on remodeling jobs. The United States Coast Guard had the last word, the Queen Mary was a building that is since most of her propeller had been removed and gutted their machines. The ship was painted with its red color water slightly higher than the old one. were removed at the conversion of the chimney as it is the only practical way to the scrap was from the engine and boiler stand out, subsiquently was found that the Chimneys were together with over thirty layers of paint and held that they had to be replaced with new products replica.
A passage in a first-class accommodation, now Part of the onboard Hotel
With all of the lower deck almost gutted by R and down on deck, Diner's Club, was the original lessee of the ship to the rest of the ship converted into a hotel. Diner's Club Queen Mary dissolved and evacuated the ship in 1970 after its parent company, Diner's Club International has been sold, and a change in corporate culture was commissioned towards the middle of the conversion process. Specialty restaurants, a Los Angeles-based company that concentrated to take on themed restaurants, would as a master lessee the following year.
While this change was the plan, most of the first and second Convert class cabins on A and B decks only in hotel rooms, and convert the main lounges and dining rooms into banquet rooms. On the promenade deck, would the starboard promenade deck included an upscale restaurant and cafe will feature called Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton, as the beginning of the 19th Century sailing theme restaurant. The famous and elegant Observation Bar was renovated as a western themed bar.
The Queen Mary's Bridge, now open to visitors
The smaller first class public spaces such as the Drawing Room, Library, Lecture Hall and the Music Studio would be stripped of most transformed their furniture and more for retail space, rapidly expanding retail presence on the ship. Two other shopping centers were built on the sun deck in separate rooms previously used for first-class cabins and engineering area.
A post-war role of the ship, the first class cinema, was removed for the kitchen space for the new promenade deck dining venues. The first class lounge and smoking room have been reconfigured and converted banquet room while the second class smoking room would be in a wedding chapel and office space may be. On the sun deck, the elegant Veranda Grill would be gutted and converted into a fast food restaurant, while a new upscale food and drinks would be offered directly above the deck Sports be created in the space once used for crew quarters. The second class lounges would be developed on the sides of the ship and used for banquets. On Deck R, was the first class dining room remodeled and divided into two venues and event rooms, the Royal Windsor salon and the rooms. The second class dining room would be in the kitchen Storage and a canteen crew are divided, while the third class dining room would initially be used as storage and crew area. Also on deck R, the first-class Turkish Bad would be complex, the 1930s equivalent to a spa, be removed. The second class pool would be removed and used in place originally for office space, during the first class swimming pool would be used for hotel guests. Combined with modern safety codes and the strength of the area directly below, is the swimming pool no longer in use.
No cabin crew remain on board the ship intact today. She now serves as a hotel, museum, tourist attraction and rent space for events, But their financial results are mixed.
The Queen Mary as a tourist attraction
On 8 May 1971, opened its doors to the Queen Mary tourist. First were only parts of the ship, were open to the public as specialty restaurants still open his restaurant or hotel. As a result, the ship was only open on weekends. In the Opened in December of that year, Jacques Cousteau's Museum of the Sea, with only a quarter of the planned exhibits built. Within the decade closed Cousteau's Museum due to low ticket sales and the death of many fish that were housed in the museum. In November the following year, the hotel opened its first 150 guest rooms. Hyatt operated the hotel from 1974 to 1980, when the Jack Wrather Corporation, a 66-year lease with the City of Long Beach signed to run the entire estate. Wrather was taken over to buy the Walt Disney Company in 1988, owned by the Wrather Disneyland Hotel, Disney had been trying for 30 years, the Queen Mary was therefore a afterthought and was never marketed as a Disney property.
First-class accommodations on the Queen Mary, converted into a modern hotel rooms with modern curtains Bedding and amenities surrounded by original wood paneling, portholes and lamps.

This theme park finally opened in a decade later in Japan as DisneySea, a new ocean liner like the Queen Mary as the centerpiece. Hotel Queen Mary closed in 1992, as Disney has given up the lease for the Ship, on what would Disney's California Adventure has become concentrated. The tourist attraction remained open for another two months, but by the end of 1992, the Queen Mary completely closed its doors to tourists and visitors.
In February 1993, under the leadership of President and CEO Joseph F. Prevratil, RMS Foundation, Inc began a five-year lease with the City of Long Beach, acting as the operator of the site. Later this month, reopened the tourist attraction complete, while the hotel reopened in March. In 1995, RMS's lease was renewed for twenty years, with the amount of the rental just to operate the ship itself was reduced. A new company, Queen's Seaport Development, Inc. (QSDI) was established in 1995, controlling the property next to the ship. In 1998, Advanced the City of Long Beach QSDI the lease to 66 years. In 2005, QSDI sought Chapter 11 protection by a dispute with credit rents in the city. In 2006, the bankruptcy court offers interesting Parties in taking over the lease from QSDI. The required minimum opening bid was $ 41M. The operation of the ship, which remained from RMS, regardless of the insolvency.

The Queen Mary had originally voted three whistles to 55 Hz, a frequency chosen because it was low enough that the extremely loud noise, it would not painful to the human ear. Modern IMO regulations specify ships horn frequencies in the range of 70 200 Hz for vessels over 200 meters (ft to 660) in length. Traditionally, the lower the frequency, the larger the ship. The Queen Mary 2, with 345 meters (1130 ft) long, was the lowest possible frequency (70 Hz given) whistles for their regulation, in addition to the renovated 55 Hz whistle on permanent loan. 55 Hz is the lower bass "A" note found one octave from the lowest note on the keyboard of a piano. The air-driven whistle Tyfon can listen to at least ten miles away.
