Distressing they maybe BUT she is still there,remember she has been longer in Long Beach, than she was at sea, still pulling the crowds, most of whom will have no idea what has gone on behind the scenes, and to all those that walk up the gangway, she still has "it" Look at the crowds that turn up for Sunday Brunch, and look at the various festivals, ok perhaps some are a tad tacky, along with a couple of the shops that could or should be relegated overboard, But when the day trippers disembark and the hotel guests remain, she takes on a different atmosphere and a world that is all her own, you can wander the hotel and lap up all that is one of the finest ocean liners, and when you close the door on your cabin you can actually believe your anywhere else other than tied up in Long Beach.
If you do read the horror stories from other sites about Queen Mary, they might well have you believe she is a crumbling mess, granted perhaps more areas, could perhaps be opened up, but just view your glass as half full, and enjoy what remains ;D

I for one cant wait to get back onboard.

What is food for thought is, will QE2 still be as well looked after in another 40 years.   
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
