The Queen Mary, New Year’s Eve and A Salute to Vienna


Ring in the New Year aboard the historic Queen Mary


Are you ready to “ring out” 2020 and start a new year? Sports Leisure Vacations has just the trip for you! A swanky New Year’s Eve party aboard the historic Queen Mary in Long Beach. For several years now, travelers have been asking for a New Year’s Eve party (we’ve had some great ones over the years especially at Harris Ranch Inn, and aboard the USS Midway) and May has discovered a new experience for you.


Daily Itinerary

Day 1

The festivities begin with a mid-morning flight to Long Beach. After lunch, settle into the Queen Mary Hotel. A docent-guided historical tour of the ship helps you get oriented to the docked ship; and provides some context for your stay. Queen Mary Hotel – 2 nights (L)

Day 2

It is New Year’s Eve Day, so we have planned a leisurely morning and afternoon. Choose from a visit to the Long Beach Aquarium, a nearby shopping center, or to just relax on the ship. Tonight, a fabulous dinner and music await, as everyone gets dressed up to ring out the old, and ring in the new. Get out your glitz and glitter... (L, D)

Day 3

A late morning start is planned after an evening of festivities, but you have another full day ahead. Depart Long Beach for San Diego. After a quick lunch, arrive at the Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego for the afternoon performance of “Salute to Vienna”... a dazzling performance evoking the golden age of Viennese music, and is a glorious re-creation of the beloved Neujahrskonzert, the concert that has welcomed the New Year for more than 80 years in Vienna and all over the world. Embassy Suites Waterfront Hotel – San Diego (L)

Day 4

An mid-day flight returns you home after a festive beginning to 2021. With Strauss waltzes still playing in your ears, and visions of bygone elegance, you can welcome a new year filled with memories of beauty, joy and entertainment. (FB)
