My girlfriends and I had a great day visiting the Queen Mary and having lunch in the Tea Room. The Diana Exhibit was worth the $32.00 per person it cost us to get in, especially, since a portion of the funds go to support breast cancer research.
In another review, I report on the delightful lunch experience we had in the Tea Room. Overall, I think our day at the Queen Mary was something we would like to experience again.
But, we will think twice when we think about how the parking scenario works. You should be forewarned. If you go to an exhibit and have a leisurely lunch, the restaurant will stamp your ticket to pay for three hours at the ship. If, however, you stay more than three hours, you will pay the daily charge of $15 (not so bad as attractions go). It was completely confusing for us, as we thought our validation for lunch would cover us as we completed our trip through the exhibit. It doesn't.
So, if you go to the Queen Mary and you want to take the time to see the exhibits and have lunch, be prepared to pay the whole parking fee. Don't bother with getting your parking validated.
