Anybody know where she is, is she still in Dubai or has gone to be refitted without her main bits.

Also any pictures of her now would be great.

Thanks for this lets hope as Fred states that she is worth more in one piece than on the beach.

QE 2 last Voyage, Timewatch on SN TV

I have just watched the first part of this story on SN TV, brilliant! My Wife and I had the pleasure of sailing on here in 2001 and I'm so glad we did.

Now she has gone to be a "ghost ship" in the gulf so sad.

When you look at the skills and technology used in the construction of that ship, now it's all gone. How did we ever let that happen!

She was still in Dubai on March 5th of this year. I have a bad photo of her. How long she will last there is anybodies guess.

She is apparently unaltered, and they are keeping power on one engine to provide A/C. Recent statements from Dubai have indicated they may open her as a tourist attraction or perhaps offer cruises pending better economic conditions.
