Queen Mary Christmas Review (Jan 2, 2019)
Updated: Jan 12, 2019
Though the Queen Mary didn't have "Chill" this year they have Christmas ON the Queen Mary.
It was so beautiful and exciting. My boys loved it. Something about being on the Queen Mary that brought a sense of an old-time Christmas. It was so magical.
You have until the 6th of January to go visit. Honestly, I would love to go back. I think I had more fun than the kids building the gingerbread house.
My youngest loved the tree lighting and My oldest enjoyed the 3-D polar express, he would go back just for that. We even spotted Santa at the Tree lighting.
