And there’s no better way to get together with family and friends — and let freedom ring with fun, festivities, and an amazing fireworks show than at the Queen Mary’s grand Fourth of July party.
The world-famous Queen Mary, who recently celebrated its 80th Anniversary from its Maiden Voyage from Southampton to New York sails its festive spirit into a fantastical Fourth of July party celebrating America from Coast-to-Coast. So there’s no need to travel cross-country with the kids in tow for Independence Day fun because the Queen Mary’s all-day celebration event thematically brings the East Coast, South, Southwest and West Coast to Southern California for a one-stop countrywide patriotic fete that ends with a spectacular musical fireworks show over the Pacific!
The Queen Mary’s Fourth of July festivities welcomes guests with a gateway to the East Coast’s Coney Island where carnival and strolling circus performers, aerialists & acrobats, trackless train rides and a host of holiday activities and games for all ages start the grand celebration.
The Nashville Tailgate brings country to the ship’s luxurious Queen’s Salon complete with a live DJ & RedNeck Rodeo Band, line-dancing and friendly games of Texas Hold’em on the Promenade Deck. Guests preferring a jazzier sound can toe-tap to dueling pianos or catch a New Orleans marching band performance. As the fun gets closer to home, the bright lights of Hollywood will shine as a live DJ, band and Hip Hop dancers help usher in the holiday. The party extends into Malibu with a Beach Boy Tribute Band and Tiki Dollz dancers and unto the Pacific as a Hawaiian Luau completes the border-to-border Queen Mary salute to the Fourth.
The All-American Fourth of July delivers a national birthday party that showcases our diverse culture through entertainment, music, activities, libations and food. “On the heels of our own 80th Anniversary, the Queen Mary is celebrating the nation she calls home with a patriotic bash and a fireworks extravaganza like no other,” says Steve Sheldon, Director of Entertainment Events for The Queen Mary. “The already famous Queen Mary Fourth of July tradition will be even bigger and better this year. A festival of all that makes our nation great – from coast to coast!”
