It looks like the previous thread was locked so I am starting a new one.
The QE2 is being moved to dry dock prior to her possible steaming to South Africa to be used as a luxury hotel in Cape Town during the next two years.

QE2 inspection: Cape Town calling
Queen Elizabeth 2 will be drydocked on Friday for a vigorous marine inspection before tentatively steaming to Cape Town, South Africa, where it will stay for 18 months as a luxury hotel operated by Nakheel, XPRESS has learnt.
Looking at the ship tracker site she is now located at Dubai Maritime City at Al Mina sitting on her own at a pier there. He colour is navy blue/purple.
By blowing up the map, I noticed that the Al Mina site corresponds to the Dubai dry docks so ths confirms the newspaper article. The QE2 is already in dry docks for inspection.
If any A.netters in Dubai could get some pictures it would be wonderful. I have noi idea how easily Al Mina can be accessed it at all. I usppose she will be moved again at some time or other and docked back at Port Rashid before they steam her down to South Africa.
Thank you very much.
