Thanksgiving Date Idea November 22nd

I am sure that those of you who have been in the military or been a military spouse for such a long time knows that eventually you cannot go home for a holiday. Time just does not always work in your favor. You miss a birthday here, and a family Christmas there. No matter how hard you try to plan and make things work they just sadly do not in the end, and that is okay. It is okay to sometimes spend holidays with just you and your significant other. But also, then the question comes to mind “what do we do now”? The thing is you can do anything you really want to. You can take leave and go to a different state and make a mini vacation of your own. For Christmas you could head to the mountains, and if you are like me, watch the snow fall over the land.

For an easy idea for Thanksgiving this year, if you are staying around Camp Pendleton instead of going home, you can have Thanksgiving Dinner on the Queen Mary with your significant other. This year on November 22nd The Queen Mary will be hosting a Thanksgiving Brunch Buffet. The Buffet starts at 10:00 am that Thursday and will last up until 7:00 pm.

The Queen Mary is located at 1126 Queens Hwy, Long Beach, California 90802. Tickets are available at

Price $69.00 w/o champagne
$79.00 w/ champagne
$24.00 kids ages 4-11

*There are also 4 different restaurants aboard the Queen Mary to eat at instead of paying for the Brunch Buffet*

The Queen Mary will also be hosting similar events for Christmas as well as New Year’s Eve!
