Hail to the Queen, Mary That Is

I am pleased to announce that we finally have a tea scheduled on the Queen Mary in their lovely tea room.  We will begin with scones and beautifully presented tea sandwiches.  Followed by tiered platters of mini desserts so delicious, along with a fine tea of your choice.

A ticket is required now to board the Queen Mary, but since we are a group, your name will be on a list at the entrance to the ship and you will not need a ticket to board the ship. They will direct you up to the correct deck of the ship to the tea room. The tea room is in the bow (front) of the ship on the top (Sun) deck.  Parking is partially validated up to 3 hours so our cost will be $7. If you stay longer, the regular parking rate of $17 will apply.

For those of you who have not seen the Princess Diana exhibit it is located just next to the Tea Room, a separate ticket is required $27.95 which you can purchase individually on the Promenade Deck of the ship.  You can arrive early and visit the exhibit at 10am or tour it after the tea. 

It is suggested you dress up just a bit for this tea, high heels are not recommended however as the ship decks are uneven and it's hard to walk with high heels.  Please bring a sweater or jacket as the tea room is located next to the Diana museum, it can get chilly on occasion.

This is a prepaid event. To secure your space please send $43.00 to www.paypal.com to [masked].  Your reservation is not confirmed until payment is received. As most of our teas are selling out, I strongly suggest you send your payment now so you don't miss out.  Refunds can be made up to 7 days prior to the event.

They do a lovely job with their teas, both food taste, presentation and the service has been nicely done as well.  Special dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice, if you have one, please make a note with your reservation.

See you in Long Beach,


Carol

    What a fantastic venue! The tea and food were divine and the service was excellent. The tea room was so elegant, with a beautiful view of the marina. The company of my fellow members was, as always, delightful. Thank you, Carol, for organizing this fabulous event!

    Thought they did a pretty good job way better than when we came a couple of years ago. Food was great, more than you could eat, venue lovely and as always interesting and fun company. What a lovely group! Maybe more people should drink tea and the world would be a better place, sure improves the mood!

    Looks like the Grand Prix of Long Beach is this weekend - http://www.gplb.com/circuit-map/
    I plan to allow some extra time to get to the Queen Mary (from West Hollywood) - if any LB locals have advice it would be appreciated.

    • Carol W.

      Thanks for the heads up JeanB. I will note that in the update prior to the event. I think going from the 710 Freeway and following signs to the Queen Mary should avoid problems, but will check with the hotel.
