Registration Form

Come join us aboard the legendary Queen Mary for the Hubbell Family Historical Society’s 18th Biennial Reunion in Long Beach, California! Relax in a unique stateroom – no two are alike. Catch up with friends and family in one of the excellent restaurants or bars. Explore the ship with a self-guided audio tour. Let the kids play in the Lego Room.Hubbel1

Attend Family Meetings in a luxurious meeting room. Celebrate with the family at the banquet to be held in the Queen Mary’s opulent Britannia Ball Room. Not wanting to waste the atmosphere, we are planning a Big Band, circa 1936, themed banquet.

Hubbell2There are many activities in the immediate area of the Queen Mary. No need to drive, as Long Beach Transit operates the Passport shuttle, taking passengers to the Aquarium of the Pacific, Shoreline Aquatic Park (a park on the water), the bike/hiking path on the beach and Rainbow Harbor (lots of excellent restaurants). The Passport comes to the Queen Mary every 15 minutes. And the best part? It’s free! Belmont Shore and Naples are accessible by the water taxi. Gondola rides on the canals of Naples are relaxing, or you can stroll along the canals on sidewalks and admire all the water-front mansions. For more attractions check www.visitlongbeach.com.

Of course there are many attractions outside of the Downtown Long Beach area. There are the USS Iowa and the SS Lane Victory docked in San Pedro. Catalina Island is only a short boat ride away, and there is a ferry terminal right next to the Queen Mary. For more information check CatalinaExpress.com. Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are perennial favorites.

The tour for the reunion is going to focus on our famous astronomer relative, Edwin P. Hubble who conducted his astronomical observations at the Mt. Wilson Observatory and taught at the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena. We will charter buses to take us to the NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which operates the Hubble Space Telescope. After we tour JPL, we will have a picnic lunch and then go to the Mt. Wilson Observatory.

Reservations for staterooms aboard the Queen Mary can be made now by calling the Queen Mary directly at (877) 342-0742. Be sure to mention that you are attending the Hubbell Family Historical Society Reunion to receive special rates ranging from $139 to $179 per night. The reservation room block is from June 15 – 19, 2017. Additional days can be reserved before or after the reunion.
