CRUISELINE: QE2 floating hotels



Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) is a former British passenger ship. She was the flagship of the British cruise line Cunard Line for 35 years until she was replaced by the Queen Mary 2 in 2004. The QE2’s home port was Southampton, England.

Since April 2018, the Queen Elizabeth 2 has been moored as a museum and hotel ship in Rashid, the port of Dubai.
The Queen Elizabeth 2 continued to operate cruises until the end of November 2008. On October 16, 2008, the Queen Elizabeth 2 arrived in New York Harbor for the last time. This was the terminus of one of over 800 Atlantic crossings made. The ship’s last voyage for a long time – New York – Dubai – began on November 11, 2008. On November 27, the Queen Elizabeth 2 arrived in Dubai, was re-flagged to United Arab Emirates and moored at the Port Rashid outer pier for conversion to her new use as a floating hotel.

On April 18, 2018, the Queen Elizabeth 2 opened as a luxury hotel in Dubai Port. Prior to that, both the anchors and propellers were removed. All cabins were restored. The MS Queen Mary 2 was also present for the opening.

A larger opening followed in October 2018.

During her service as a Cunard flagship, she was primarily used as a transatlantic liner. In addition, however, cruises around the globe were offered, mainly during the winter season. Most recently, she operated exclusively as a cruise ship and rarely sailed the transatlantic route in this capacity.

Today, it is possible to spend a wonderful night on the ship, immersing oneself in the maritime world of times gone by. The Hotel is run and managed by the french Accor-Group.

Farewell QE2!
