Ex-Cunard QE2 Ocean Liner: Endgame? (by MadameConcorde Oct 17 2012 in Non Aviation)
There is not any chance that Her Shipness ever take passengers on cruises again. She does not comply with the latest SOLAS regulations.
She is still docked at Port Rashid in Dubai waiting for an uncertain future.
She was put in dry dock and repainted some time ago. She looks well although no one is allowed inside so we don't know what is left. There is a minimal crew on board but from what I have heard they don't live on the Ship. She has some of her lights on at night - the funnel is nicely lit - making her visible from a distance, especially from the air.
These are the latest pictures as of 27 October 2012
We have a Facebook group with lots of interesting pictures and documents.
" QE2 The Legend - the greatest ship ever "
The group was created by Louis de Souza. He worked on board a number of years and he knows the Ship really well. All are welcome to join and participate.
I will be in Dubai next week so I will go around and see if I can get access to the cruise terminal. If anyone happens to read this post and knows someone who works at Port Rashid and can get me in, please contact me by private message or via the Facebook group.
