Queen Mary Tour
The 2008 Affirmation Conference will conclude with a guided tour of the Queen Mary, a renowned ocean liner which has been converted into a historic hotel and a floating museum.
Now permanently berthed in Long Beach, the Queen Mary sailed the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967. Today, the ship is an internationally recognized icon for the City of Long Beach.
Transportation to Long Beach
Affirmation will not provide transportation for this tour. Instead, we will meet at the hotel lobby on Sunday, October 12, no later than 1:30 pm. and we will carpool from the hotel to Long Beach (approximately a 21 minute ride). The official tour will finish at 3:30 pm, after which carpooling groups are free to explore Long Beach or return to the hotel.

If you are planning to take this tour, please add $18 to your conference registration as indicated in the registration form. Early registration is encouraged. The deadline to register is September 17.
The cost of parking by the Queen Mary is: $3.00 for 31 minutes to 1 hour, and $12.00 for one hour to 12 hours. Carpooling from the conference hotel and sharing parking costs is strongly encouraged.
Notice for Wheelchair Users
If you use a wheelchair, please make note of it on the back of the registration form. Unfortunately, some areas of the Queen Mary maintain the original narrow corridors and therefore some sections of this tour will be closed to wheelchair users.
