‘Docked but doing nothing - don’t let QE2 rust away to ruin’
I remember how the cruise liner the Queen Elizabeth II, berthed in Port Rashid, in Dubai back in 2008 and there was a warm celebration to welcome to her.
The owner of this extraordinary ship announced it may be a floating hotel then there were other stories about what it would become. However, today when I travel through the city, I can see she is still in the same place with faded appearance because lack of maintenance.
It is so sad to see developers spending millions
on other things and leaving her aside. Previously there was a another similar ship berthed at Port Rashid too, it
was a big ship, but finally, because of a lack of care, it became so rusty, it was pulled away and possibly donated to scraps.
I hope the QE2 doesn’t go the same way.
