Program #1180RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Welcome Aboard the Queen Mary! During 31 years at sea and 1,001 transatlantic crossings, this ship transported the rich and famous across the North Atlantic and now this is your chance to experience an era of opulence as you stay aboard one of the original luxury ocean liners. Relive the ship's history from construction and launch to passenger service and troopship through ship’s officer talks and expert-led walk. Get acquainted with Catalina Island and its charming seaside village of Avalon.


Highlights

• Relive the excitement of 1930’s opulence as you actually go onboard the Queen Mary — docked, yet still afloat — and enjoy expert lectures on the design and construction of the ship.
• On Catalina, imagine Big Band music playing as you stroll across the ballroom of the Casino, Avalon’s most recognizable landmark.
• Examine native plants at the Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Garden.

Activity Notes

Walking up to 1.5 miles per day. No porterage.
