Well, I think it's more of a matter of choosing an up-to-date photograph for when booking starts. I know that these are early days, and I am sure when the time comes they will have a much greater selection of photographs ready to choose from.

This is a promising beginning! Looking forward to more news as times go on.

When I saw the photo, for a moment or two I thought it was recent, then I saw the funnel smoke and, as you say, the lifeboats in their rightful place, and realised it was an in-service photo.  I suppose its understandable.

But - where is she in the photo?  That's the question.  There's quite a distinctive clock tower in the background.

Also its interesting that they've digitally removed the CUNARD logo and, I think, the gangway graphics.

Further to your question as to location Rob, it looks to me that she is berthed in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The clock tower is as you say distinctive as is the marquee at the far end of the pier used as a check-in by Thomson/Tui/Marella and any other company starting cruises from the port.

Attached is a picture of the clock tower at Santa Cruz de Tenerife taken in 2008 on the last visit to the port of QE2.

Really nice to see something the website up, it finally shows some real progress being communicated by the owners after a very long time.

I do hope that they put more content on it, although it is maybe way to early to judge them based on that.

Just about everyone I would think. Thank you to all who pointed out that they have used a photo of QE2 in service. Speaks volumes I think. I remain sceptical as I do about everything to do with Dubai. Cynical abuse of western values yet more than happy to take our money!

Just thinking about it, 10 years ago the economic downturn was going on at the time, and the hotel would have been opened in the middle of it all, say 2009-2010. Maybe it is just better that all the delays and such happened, since 10 years on I recently have heard only good new, people go on vacation more often etc.
