Queen Mary Sunday Brunch (Eclectic/Buffet): ...
In an attempt to do something different and original in celebration of my girlfriends' birthdays, I took 'em out to a champagne brunch at the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Having done all my research on the web, I was given the impression by other reviewers that the QM brunch would be "fantastic". However, it wasn't all that. The food was just ok and the place too crowded to maintain any sort of sophistication or elegance. Besides, when you've got hordes of hungry people pushing their way through buffet lines, there's noth'n ever pretty about that. Well, buffets are never pretty to begin with. However, what made the brunch special was the fact that it was spent with lovely friends enjoying great conversation, a new experience (none of us had dined at the QM before), and unlimited mimosas. That's for you Jen. =) After the brunch, we explored a little bit of the ship, which afforded neat views of Long Beach's skyline.

Queen Mary Dining Room: Brunch for the little ones
As you walk into the dining room on the Queen Mary, you will see a sign saying
BRUNCH for the little ones.
It is so cute how they have set up a buffet that the little ones can reach.
I don't know how this actually works out but I liked the idea.
We didn't have any little ones with us that day so we didn't try it.

Queen Mary Dining Room: Xmas Buffet
We had reservations for noon to have our Xmas brunch aboard the Queen Mary.
Our table was near the kitchen and the buffet, great location.
First we were served water,orange juice, and champagne. Then we were on our own to sample the different Internatiomal foods. There was one for breakfast food and someone making omlettes to order. There was a seafood station that also had assorted pasta dishes and cheeses. There was an Asian station and a Mexico station. A station to get prime rib, ham, and all that stuff that I didn't look at. Then there was a bar out in the middle filled with pasteries. YUMMMMM
Of course there was also the dessert bar. A lady was making crepes there plus it had cheesecake, flan, cakes, and cookies.
Favorite Dish: Everything was good. I would have liked my omlette to have a few more spices but you can't please everyone.

Queen Mary Dining Room: Breakfast Buffet
We decided we needed to eat after all the flying time the previous day.
We went to ask the typical breakfast but when we saw the buffet we decided to stay.
I first found how Americans like the bacon (too crispy for me lol) and that eggs are a main course in all breakfast. And something I never tried before the hush browns ,,,,,
I guess if I go again I will repeat as it was the views from there of Long Beach deserved.
