Queen Mary, meet Queen Victoria . That's pretty much how the introduction would go if these two Cunard ships -- one docked in Long Beach, one on its way to the Panama Canal -- could speak. Instead, the ships  will exchange a whistle salute amid fireworks when they "meet"  Thursday in Long Beach Harbor. Admission to the Queen Mary, usually $24.95 plus tax for adults, will be free to mark what Cunard calls a "royal rendezvous. " Queen Victoria is expected to sail into Long Beach Harbor between 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. and rendezvous with its sister ship between 6:15 and 6:45 p.m. The ship opens to visitors for free at 10 a.m.; guided tours and dining, however, are not free.

When two "queens" meet, expect some whistles and fireworks. Cunard Line plans a royal rendezvous next month when the modern ocean liner Queen Elizabeth visits the Queen Mary, a former Cunard ship that has been retired for 45 years. The Long Beach landmark, whose art deco cabins now serve as hotel rooms, once sailed the North Atlantic as a sister ship of the Queen Elizabeth from 1947 to 1967. The deal: The public is invited to stroll onto the Queen Mary for free to watch the historic rendezvous that includes a whistle salute between the two ships, live entertainment and fireworks.
