Queen Mary Sunday Brunch, Long Beach…definitely a flexitarian Sunday!

we haven’t been here in forever (since like Mother’s Day 10 years ago…) but we had friends in town for another doll convention (thankfully Jim has some limits)  in downtown long beach so the QM seemed like the perfect ace to meet up for Queen Mary Sunday champagne brunch .

   
The queen Mary from the parking lot as we arrived

 
Downtown long beach across the water

   
The dome….it’s just the dome…I have no idea what it’s doing.

Upon entering the queen Mary, you will see the hotel entrance (onboard the ship) , Sir winstons fine dining at the queen Mary, shops etc

The dining room for brunch is ginormous 

  
   
 
The famous ice sculpture dripping shrimp

   
The harpist who is mentioned in every review on yelp

 
Homemade by someone corned beef hash!  For a flexitarian, this was yummy!

   
Food and more food…pastas, Asian, salads, breakfast items, seafoods, a carving station, omelette station…

 
No, we did not get to eat at the captains table..he was busy as you can see

   
    
 
Omelette station

   
 
Four meats at the carving station including pork tenderloin in addition to the usual suspects

   
The desserts kept changing!   Rebecca say my carrot cake and when I went back there was none but chocolate covered strawberries had arrived and when Rebecca went back there was a time chocolate tart that wasn’t there before…

 
  

The price tag for this whole affair is like 56.95 a person plus parking…so this is not a brunch for just any old Sunday…..but the atmosphere is nice (come on!  It’s the queen Mary! And you are eating on the water and there are portholes for windows) and the food is pretty good and there is the harpist:-).  Then you get to wander the ship after.

After a brunch filled with numerous mimosas, you have to look around the ship.
Things like the worlds longest Lego brick model ship

(Look at my calves!  Now if I could trim up my waist to match them!)

And play in the phone less phone booths

   
 
Good day with good people…overall it’s a fun splurge ….
