The QE2: Ship of History, Ship of Dreams

The QE2 was launched by her namesake, Queen Elizabeth II, at Clydebank, Scotland in 1967. She then took on 39 years of service, shuttling her residents between Southampton and New York a total of 812 times. Her luxurious cabins hosted David Bowie, Elizabeth Taylor, and Nelson Mandela, among many other famous names and faces. The QE2 even saw a short period of action when she served as a troopship in the Falklands War before returning to cruising. Overall, she completed 25 world tours and was still the fastest cruise ship afloat until she retired in 2008. She arrived in Dubai in November 2008, and after several years of uncertainty, opened as a hotel and tourist attraction in 2018.
