From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Is it time to think more about this topic?
Maybe - because it will be crucially important for her owners.

Having spoken loud and clear about the project that includes Heritage in the title - Everything that QE2 has carried round the world is part of her heritage, and most definitely needs Preservation - doesn't it?

Concur Rosie.  This thread would and should be the perfect place to start for the designers!  That and including me as a consultant ;-)

OK Bob - As consultant, you'ld agree wouldn't you, that there should be absolutely no cheap and tacky replicas or otherwise put in QE2 - if the originals can be used - Fantastic. 
If not, then what do you recommend?
I'm thinking of items like the statues, the Falklands wooden memorial plaque, and of course the silver Asprey model, her Builders Plate, her Great Bell, the Royal Standard, the bust of the Queen - the latter five items comfortably sitting on board Queen Elizabeth and not forgetting everything from the Wardie and the Captains Quarters,  Thomas's heritage collection behind glass on the stairways (E) I think, The Collection of Model ships as well as the street names from the Crew Quarters etc etc,
'The great Samurai', the Boston Cup (now on QM2) and All wonderful pictures, including the Graham Sutherland, and All wall hangings including the John Piper.
If none of these are to be re-installed, Please then could Cunard rescue these precious items and install them in a museum in the UK? If not the National Maritime Museum (and if not - why not?), then the Maritime Museum in Liverpool - the port where QE2 was conceived.
Please Everyone, You are all 'Consultants' - join in too!
