QM2 in Dubai, April 11, 2012

Today Queen Mary 2 is in Dubai.

I hope Cunard will publish nice pictures of her and QE2, like they did last year with QE.

QM2 visited Dubai this past week, and Queen Elizabeth not long before that. 

I would imaging that photos and videos were taken, and salutes were exchanged between both and QE2, but have yet to see any photos or video, here or elsewhere, of what appears to have become an annual ritual pending further news about my favorite ship, now entering her fourth Summer of blistering heat in Dubai.
 
Hoping to see something before too long.

I would think it is by no means certain that QE2 will still be sitting there next year, with power available for her whistles, so it is entirely possible that this was the last time that QE2 was able to salute her successor, and vice versa.

I was told beforehand that QE2 was primed and ready for a whistling contest, but I have yet to see any photos or videos.

All I'm saying is this *could* have been a profoundly historic meeting, although we won't know for sure for another 12 months if it will happen again!
