Taken only in a year's window between her re-engining in 1986/7 and 1988.The Magrodome with its retractable roof along with the Quarter Deck pool were removed then. The two large launches, Alpha and Beta would also go eventually.
Great image. I see the spot on the lido (port side near the stair) where we would lay-out every day during 2-Hawaiian cruises I did on QE2 in 1988 and 1989. We did a eastbound crossing on her w/the magradome still in place in May, 1991. The next time onboard the entire mess (it was really unattractive) had been removed and the aft decks looked far better.
