be sure to check the end of my review for highlights if you don't want to read the whole thing...
I cannot say enough good things about The Queen Mary Hotel. My husband and I fell in love with this ship hotel early on in our relationship and we knew that it was the only place we would want to get married. We worked completely with the wonderful Julie Arroyo from the start and she was great at meeting every question or concern we had with a positive answer. She kept going with the flow as we changed things on her and I think she knew better what we wanted than we did.
The ship has gone through a lot of overhauling this past year and we were lucky to have a fresh clean sparkly ship for our ceremony and reception. The chapel is beautiful and if you're looking for a vintage feel to your wedding, this is the place. There's a great art deco look going on since it is a ship that set sail in 1936.
We booked a small banquet room for our reception and had an hour cocktail and app. bar which was ideal for our guests to enjoy while we took off for couples pictures.
The food was absolutely amazing and even more amazing was the wait staff. I never had to even ask for anything, it was always there before I even knew I needed it.
And of course we stayed on the ship the night of the wedding, enjoying a gorgeous state room with a fabulous in room breakfast the next morning.
so here's what you might want to know...
--Quality of service: excellent. The entire staff actually go out of their way to ensure you're not only satisfied, but incredibly happy. No request is too small or too much.
--Responsiveness: We only worked with Julie Arroyo and she was always very attentive. She never let more than a few hours go by between my contacting her and her responding. And considering her workload, I'm amazed at how quickly she responded. Always felt like we were her only clients.
--Professionalism: Should go without saying after reading the above... absolutely 100% Profesional.
--Value for cost: Depending on what you book on the ship, there's a price range for everyone. It's a gorgeous and one of a kind venue and you are waited on hand and foot... so you definitely get what you pay for, that being said, it's a great value. We had a small number of guests, but opted for the most expensive dinner plate option per person and our entire ceremony and reception cost us well under $2000.
--Flexibility: We changed our mind about timing and meals and venue for the dinner at least 10 times and there was never a mention of it being an issue from Julie when we called of visited with new changes. Everything was just always taken care of.
Basically, if you want a wedding venue that is unique, luxurious and vintage... this is your place.

The Queen Mary was the perfect place to have our wedding.
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.
