Attending a cultural festival is one of the best ways to learn about the lesser-known traditions of another country, second only to sneaking into United Nations meetings dressed as Abraham Lincoln. Stow away prop beards with today’s Groupon: for $16, you get a one-day admission package at the The Queen Mary (up to a $33 total value). The package includes:

Choose between the following dates: * Saturday, February 18 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. * Sunday, February 19 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.<p>

First setting sail in 1936, The Queen Mary served as a World War II troop ship, a luxury liner transporting celebrity guests, and a white-whale chaser before retiring in 1967. The 19th Annual Scottish Festival & Games erupts into a lively celebration of The Queen Mary’s Scottish roots, complete with highland dancing, live music, sheepdog herding demonstrations, and authentic Scottish fare and ales. A parade polinates the air with the reed-heavy drone of bagpipes, and a historical re-enactment dramatizes the plight of rotary phone users. On a return visit, guests can also peruse The Queen Mary’s original staterooms and sun decks, including authentic art-deco built-ins and wood paneling. The Queen Mary historic exhibit further illuminates the legends, terrors, and sordid games of bridge throughout the ship’s storied history.

_The Queen Mary_

Since its maiden voyage in 1936, The Queen Mary has cultivated a colorful history by transporting iconic figures from Winston Churchill to Fred Astaire across the ocean blue, as well as serving as troop transport in a world war. Today, passengers board the famous ocean liner to tour historical and haunted areas amidships or stay overnight in an onboard hotel. Visitors rub elbows at seasonal soirees and dive into historical exhibits, fueling up at restaurants, bars, and cafés for a literal taste of The Queen Mary's brand of luxury.
