HISTORY -- After several years of decreased profits for
Cunard Line, Queen Mary was
officially retired from service in 1967. She left Southampton for the last time
on 31 October 1967 and sailed to the port of Long Beach, California, United
States, where she remains permanently moored. Much of the machinery, including
one of the two engine rooms, three of the four propellers, and all of the
boilers, were removed. The ship serves as a tourist attraction featuring
restaurants, a museum, and a hotel. The ship is listed on the National Register
of Historic Places. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has accepted
the Queen Mary as part of the Historic Hotels of America.

<p>HISTORY -- The second RMS Laconia was a Cunard ocean liner, built by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson as a successor of the 1911-1917 Laconia. The new ship was launched on 9 April 1921, and made her maiden voyage on 25 May 1922 from Southampton to New York. At the outbreak of World War II she was converted into an Armed Merchant Cruiser, and subsequently a troopship. Like her predecessor, sunk during the First World War, this Laconia was also destroyed by a German submarine. Some estimates of the death toll have suggested that over 1,649 people were killed when the Laconia sank.
