We loved this venue. Stacia is great to work with and has such a bubbly personality. I could totally see our wedding at the Queen Mary. Ultimately, we selected another venue because there would be a lot of walking involved for our mobility challenged guests.Sent on 04/13/2019

The Queen Mary was the perfect place to have our wedding.Sent on 07/19/2018
We started off with a great tour of all of the ball rooms that would accommodate our guests (166 total) with Lisa. She then went over the package with us. The package was such a great value. A beautiful ballroom, catering, cake, tables, chairs, linens, a hosted cocktail hour, and huge stateroom for the night of the wedding was a huge selling point.
We were then assigned our wonderful event coordinator, Breanna. She was so helpful, and went over every little detail with us to make sure we were happy. She also recommended hiring a day of coordinator, Lucas Jeanne Events, and that ended up making our day so smooth and easy.
We received so many compliments of how unique and great our wedding was because we decided to host it on the Queen Mary.
We have nothing negative to say about our experience with the Queen Mary at all.
