Cunard brought its youngest ship, Queen Elizabeth, to the celebrations at Long Beach harbor. At the opening of 'The Cunard Story' exhibition on The Queen Mary's onboard, Queen Elizabeth's captain Inger Thorhauge saluted the legendary Queen Mary by sounding her horn. Guests on two ships celebrated both the opening of the exhibition and the July Fourth holiday, with a spectacular fireworks show.

'The Cunard Story' exhibition, hosted by The Queen Mary, sheds light on Cunard's glorious 179-year history. 'The Cunard Story' will be a permanent exhibition that shows the Cunard legacy with works of art, photographs, and films. In the 19th and 20th centuries, one in five immigrants that came to Ellis Island traveled with Cunard ships, so there is a special Ellis Island section in 'The Cunard Story' exhibition.

The Queen Mary, which made her maiden voyage in May 1936, was considered as the largest ocean liner of her time, is now located in the Port of Long Beach and offers an unforgettable experience to its visitors as a symbol of maritime history with its authentic Art Deco d├ęcor.

With 2,081 passengers, Queen Elizabeth attended the Long Island celebrations on her return from Alaska. She met with The Queen Mary and saluted her, and she's on her way to the next destination.
