Arriving Friday night, we started our weekend in the Observation Bar to plan our itierary with our other 4 couples from San Diego. The perfect place to begin! Then, we dined in Chelsea's Chowder house with an amazing fare from salads to fresh seafood. The period cocktail list is sure to put you in a '40's state of mind!
The next day after Starbucks while sitting on the Sundeck enjoying the crisp view of the LB skyline, we began the Diana exhibit. After 2 hours, we were still wanting more, but had to make our 1pm reservations in the Tea Room. This was probably one of the most unique and classy experiences at a most reasonable price. If there is any doubt as to what to order from the menu, take our advice and order the Windsor Tea. The quality and presentation of the food is absolutely the finest set in one of the most beautiful rooms on the ship with views of the skyline. And Melissa was the most wonderful ambassador for the Tea experience!
Up to Sir Winston's later that night for a pre-dinner cocktail and you truly feel like royalty to a wonderful pianist and cozy booth seatings.
Sunday morning, we enjoyed the incredible Sunday Champagne Brunch. I don't believe we have ever experienced anything finer, anywhere. The food and service was absolutely stately in every detail. In the afternoon and to walk off the champagne and food, we enjoyed the hotel guest-complimentary audio tour throughout the ship. Wonderful descriptions of so many unique QM with a fantastic wayfinding device!
The Queen Mary is the perfect venue for an experiential weekend, as a couple or with several, as we did. The history and uniqueness of this treasured liner filled our dinner conversations and all left with a bit of the Queen in their hearts.
This is an experience that you will truly remember and treasure. Guaranteed!
