Long Beach Regains Full Control of Queen Mary

For the first time in more than 40 years, Long Beach is once more in full control of the Queen Mary — along with the surrounding 40 acres of parks, cruise terminals and parking lots.

The ship’s operator, Urban Commons Queensway, LLC, surrendered its lease for the vessel on Friday, June 4, which means the oversight and management of the historic ocean liner has now returned to Long Beach.

While Long Beach has long owned the Queen Mary, it has contracted out management of the ship to various third-party firms over the years, most recently, to Urban Commons Queensway in 2016. The city hasn’t had control over the day-to-day operations since 1978.
