The Queen Mary, in Long Beach, Calif., is working with Radio Disney AM 1110 and the Aquarium of the Pacific to offer families the chance to experience a variety of Southern California entertainment for one price of $149. The Southern California Adventure spring-break stay-cation package is available March 18 through April 26.

The package begins with a welcome card and autographed photo of Radio Disney on-air personality Ernie D., along with a disposable camera to capture vacation memories.

In addition, the Southern California Adventure package includes: a one-night stay aboard the Hotel Queen Mary, with additional nights available for $99; two complimentary tickets to the Queen Mary’s “Ghosts & Legends” show; two complimentary children’s tickets and discounted adult tickets to the Aquarium of the Pacific; two complimentary tickets to the Los Angeles Zoo; two complimentary tickets to an L.A. Galaxy Soccer game; two complimentary tickets to the San Diego Wild Animal Park; a discount coupon for a hotel stay in San Diego; and a complimentary coffee-table book on the Queen Mary.

The Queen Mary is home to a 314-room art deco hotel, where guests can relive the excitement of cruising in the style of the 1930s without ever leaving port. Three oceanview restaurants offer casual to fine dining.

The Aquarium of the Pacific brings guests face to face with more than 12,500 sea creatures. Visitors can even touch some in the Shark Lagoon.
