SAN DIEGO ( TheStreet) -- There are few people who symbolized all that is luxurious more than Princess Diana, with a seemingly endless stream of fabulous dresses worn amid palaces, glamorous parties and a jet-setting lifestyle.
But Diana was also a dedicated mother, humanitarian, lifelong devotee of psychics and prolific letter writer, and in one handwritten private letter after another, the words of this princess are both eloquent and touchingly revealing.
As part of the Diana: Legacy of a Princess exhibit, all these facets of her personality are on display on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, Calif.What more appropriate way to showcase the life of such a glamorous and fascinating icon than on a ship that was the most luxurious of its time when built in the 1930s? The Queen Mary was given five dining areas and lounges, two cocktail bars and swimming pools, a grand ballroom, a squash court and even a small hospital. Docked in Long Beach since 1967, the storied Queen Mary was converted into a hotel in 1972. The ship is offering a special Princess Diana Package that includes a one-night stay in an authentic 1930s Art Deco stateroom, two tickets to the exhibit and a $20 credit at the exhibit gift shop.
