Since we consider ourselves ROYALTY, we were thrilled to receive a private invitation to experience The Queen Mary’s Royal Sunday Brunch. Sure by the end of the #SundayFunday affair our crowns were a little tilted from all the free-flowing champagne, but we had to share our experience even if it was a little blurry with you.
VISIT THE QUEEN MARY
The Queen Mary is right in our own backyard in Long Beach and is a perfect way to celebrate love, friendships, anniversaries, or just treat yourself like the royalty you are.
We enjoyed a global cuisine adventure. The historic ocean liner pulled out all the stops: carving stations, oysters, king crab legs, sushi bar, a huge dessert section, and traditional breakfast items.
FREE-FLOWING CHAMPAGNE — NEED WE SAY MORE?
We met some folks who loved champagne just as much as us and so we had a blast! Live entertainment in the grand Windsor Room set the scene for a perfect Sunday afternoon. We chowed down on western breakfast fare with made-to-order omelets, pancakes, eggs benedict (my fave!) and homemade hash. The seafood bar had piles of king crab legs, freshly shucked oysters, shrimp cocktail and Lox and bagels and poached salmon.
Experience a southwestern flare with albondigas soup, carne asada tacos, hot n’ sour soup, or Asian style ribs. Pace yourself as you’ll also want to taste the imported tuna niçoise and a vast selection of domestic and imported cheeses. The signature carving station is a highlight of brunch, offering perfectly prepared prime rib au jus and leg of lamb with mint jus.
To complement the Royal Sunday Brunch experience, Commodore Everette Hoard offers a new, intimate guided tour of the ship on Sundays, from 2-3 p.m., exclusively for brunch guests. Walking around the ship was a welcome affair after filling our pansas with delicious food and drinks. Did you know there are tales of the ship being haunted? You can feel the chilly vibe in some hallways or rooms.
Royal Sunday Brunch is available on Sundays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Brunch starts at $69.00 per person without champagne, $79.00 per person with champagne and $24.00 for children ages 4-11. Reservations are highly recommended. For more information visit queenmary.com.
