Queen Elizabeth 2

Queen Elizabeth 2

Last year, one of the world’s most iconic ships got a new lease on life as a Dubai hotel, just a decade after it began its farewell voyage and sailed to the city. Now permanently docked in Dubai’s Mina Rashid, the hotel includes 224 refurbished rooms and suites in 13 different categories, as well as a varied selection of 10 dining options spread across the massive ship.

For those interested in the QE2’s five decades of storied history, it also includes an interactive exhibit as well as five daily heritage tours that take visitors through the vessel’s history, original rooms and artefacts to get a feel of what it would have been like to travel on the ship during its golden age.
