QE2 'will not be scrapped'

Date Posted: 19 Mar 2009

Now could be the last chance holidaymakers ever have to enjoy a cruise onboard the Queen Elizabeth 2.

The cruise ship's new Dubai owners had planned to turn the vessel into a huge six-star hotel, however rumours have emerged that it may just be scrapped altogether, reports the Associated Press.

In a statement, government-owned Nakheel said that while the hotel plan will go ahead, a postponement of the redevelopment could not be ruled out.

The firm commented: "Irrespective of short-term plans, the ultimate goal is to renovate and refurbish QE2 and for her to be the focal point of a luxury precinct dedicated to her."

One of the most well-known cruise ships in the world, the QE2 has five restaurants, two cafes, three swimming pools and its own pub.

Among the itineraries available are 80-day world cruises, around 30 Atlantic crossings a year and party cruises.
