      TRAVEL MANNERS: A VISIT TO THE QUEEN MARY

      It’s one thing for a child to mind one’s manners at home or in a familiar setting, but it’s another to learn how to maintain those manners while on the go; no parent deserves to have their precious vacation time compromised by unruly children inexperienced with public spaces and rigorous travel conditions. Toward that end, we offer an excursion to the Queen Mary in Long Beach. We emphasize awareness while traveling and cooperation with our fellow travelers. Children bring small travel luggage--enough for a change of clothes and travel essentials.    Children participate in a hybrid educational experience. The Queen Mary's captain welcomes them during a meet-and-greet, followed by a tour of the ship. The hotel staff provide accommodations for students to freshen up and change into smart dress outfits prepared for the tour: dresses for the girls; dress shirts/trousers/shoes for the boys, with a sweater, or light jacket for change of weather. Next, students enjoy a light lunch at the scenic Promenade Cafe. Students tour the ship discovering its storied history. Finally, a scavenger hunt to find some of its treasures concludes the visit. The lesson encourages cooperation among fellow travelers while on-the-go. We have two offerings of the series: For the first, students meet at the Metro Transit rail station in Culver City at 8:00am, then take Metro Transit, to Long Beach. If the journey may seem long and arduous, it’s meant to be—traveling is tiring and this serves as a pre-vacation exercise in maintaining one’s composure and cooperative spirit throughout an exhausting day.  The second offering departs from Glendale Station for an 8:00am dropoff. We then board the Metro Train bound for Long Beach. We leave Long Beach at 4:00pm.
