Saturday Serenity: RMS Queen Mary – Never-ending Deck!

Many of you know about my deep and utter love for the ship, “RMS Queen Mary” permanently docked in Long Beach, California.  When I’m not on the ship, I think about being on the ship.  When I’m on the ship I think about how fantastic it is and can’t wait to get back!

I took this photo back in March when I stayed aboard during the week I won a trip to Los Angeles:  I’ve Been Away Because I Won a Trip to L.A.!

The hallways of the deck of the ship are sooooo long!  Can you see how it appears to ‘ripple’ in the background?  I don’t believe that is your eyes playing tricks on you.  To my understanding, the decks had to be constructed in such a fashion as to allow for ‘give’ while the Queen Mary was sailing mightily across the Atlantic Ocean (1200 voyages).

Although difficult to tell from this angle, there are a plethora of hallways leading to more hallways (and cabins) that jet off this main deck thoroughfare.  Is it extremely easy to get lost on the ship? You bet it is (the ship has 12 decks – 3 of which have staterooms/cabins), and I for one actually enjoy that!  Exploring places without a purpose as to where you wish to go is something I really love to do!

Do you have a place on the planet that you absolutely adore?

    I love the wood Cher, looks beautiful. The hallway appears to go up as you look further down it. I remember seeing the ship out a hotel win dow some years ago. As with many other things in those days, they are so artsy looking!

      Isn’t it beautiful, John? And there are so many types of woods incorporated into the making of the Queen Mary; 56 different kinds, actually! Oh did you? Yes, they literally don’t build them like they used to, eh John? Thank you! Cher xo

        Nope. We were on a ship cruise to Cabo San Lucas and stayed overnight before boarding the Carnival cruise ship. Had a dandy view of her. 56 different woods? How many more are there!

        Ah, that’s how you saw the Queen Mary! Yes, I think a lot of people who are going on cruises see her in the distance! Yes, hard to believe, eh? I know, I was thinking the same thing, John! That’s a lot of wood variations; the ship is so stunning, and the woodwork is phenomenal! Cher xo

    Amazing photo, Cher. Not only does it look as if the hallway has a ripple effect, but it also looks as if it’s sloping up, and is a bit of a steep climb.

      Hi Hugh! You are right! It does look like it is sloping up and a bit of a steep climb! Isn’t it fascinating to see that effect down this extremely long hallway? I do wonder if it appeared the same when the Queen Mary was at sea? Thank you, dear Hugh! Cher xo
