The Legendary Queen Elizabeth 2 Is Now A Floating Resort In Dubai

Whether you’re familiar with the Queen Elizabeth 2 ocean liner through her iconic history or her prominent role in The Parent Trap, the restoration of the legendary ship to her former glory is something to be excited about.

The QE2 is the world’s most famous ocean liner, now permanently moored in Mina Rashid, Dubai, where you can come aboard for a tour or to stay in the state of the art floating resort. The liner has been transformed into a glorious 224-room resort parked right on the harbour.

The on-again-off-again project has paid off and the floating resort now sports completely modernised suites, more than a dozen bars and restaurants, a shopping promenade, a movie theatre and all of the latest technology – all while keeping the ship’s historic charm. They’ve also included a QE2 exhibition on board so that guests can immerse themselves in the ship’s rich past.

You can book your spot on the QE2 now, though only five of the dining venues are open at the moment. For the complete experience, you’ll have to wait until the official launch later this year in October.
