QE2_Birds Eye_Low ResThe world’s most iconic ocean liner has been turned into one of the world’s most iconic hotels – the QE2 Hotel Dubai.

The ship first set sail in 1969, and completed more than 1,400 voyages throughout her 39 year career. At the time she was the biggest and fastest cruise liner ever built. Over her illustrious career she has played her part in not only taking passengers across the Atlantic more than 800 times, but has also been used for transporting soldiers for the Falklands War. Even Queen Elizabeth herself has a voyage, and was the first Ruling Monarch ever to travel on a commercial liner with passengers.

While the QE2 Hotel in Dubai is new, many original features have been beautifully preserved, allowing guests to relive her golden era. This includes an exhibition, and several of the dining outlets and bars have retained their original names and décor.

The vessel is a wonderful choice for heritage enthusiasts, and Port Rashid is convenient to Dubai’s historic heart. The colourful Gold and Spice Souks, Al Fahidi and Dubai Creek districts are moments away.
