QE2 to become floating hotel

Cunard Line today announced the sale of QE2 to Dubai World, in a US$100 million deal which will turn the iconic liner into a first-class tourism destination at The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

Built at the John Brown Shipyard on the Clyde, the QE2 came into service in 1969 and is the longest-serving ship in Cunard's 168-year history.

Since 1969, the QE2 has undertaken 25 world cruises, has crossed the Atlantic more than 800 times and has carried more than 2.5 million passengers.
