This was our first stay at the Hotel Queen Mary and we thought it was a great! Our room was fabulous (mid-ship, harbor view) and we thought the room and all it's "splendor" and uniqueness was fun to be a part. We have cruised 15 times so this was not our first time on a "cruise ship" so-to-speak. So to be in a unique, antique, and historical ship, was quite spectacular for us. Our service was excellent and we were treated quite well. Of course, we are not to "nit-picky" about things and try to enjoy the aspects of what we are given. In any case,... our room did have a bit of a "musty" smell and was a little warm when we arrived in it. But, by opening the port hole windows (2 of them) and turning the anitique fan blowers to "cool air", it was all we needed. We loved the historical aspects of the room and to know that much of the ship and rooms amenities and make-up were original, was intriguing and interesting to us. So, that being said, many of the typical "newness", "updates", and "luxuries" of a typical ship cabin or even a regular hotel room, may not be part of the deal, but it's a historical museum and that's why it shall be enjoyed. We loved it.
During our 1 night stay, we also enjoyed the Princess Diana Exhibit and had High Tea in the Tea Room. Again, we enjoyed both. All-in-all, going into this fun experience with an open mind to the unique "hotel" experience, is part of the splendor. Would we do it again? Yes.
