The Original Sports Deck
« on: Jan 13, 2011, 03:52 AM »
I'm looking to see how many photos of the original Sports Deck as well as stories and other memories are out there.  The photos below are my starting contribution to this lost but unique space.

Access to this location was strange by todays standards.  Correct me if I'm wrong but there was no passenger lift/elevator access to this level.  To access the Sports deck one could climb the flight of weatherdeck (outdoor) stairs from the Boat Deck on the port and starboard sides, enter from a door at the forward bulkhead (wall) of the Children's Nursery (a flight of stairs just aft of D Stairway on the starboard side was used to get up to the Nursery) and I believe you could also access the space via a flight of stairs discussed here (,63.msg30420.html#msg30420) but I'm still waiting for confirmation if they were for passenger use.

I'm hoping someone has some photos of the forward section of the Sports Deck that shows what's underneath the forward overhead.

Makes me wish Dubai would restore the QE2 to her original configuration, that would be amazing.

Thanks again for the great photos.
