According to Marinetraffic she is using here own power, and not being towed. That means that she will make here way to the end with some dignity, instead of being towed around.

Hi
She was off Kuala Lumpur  at 03;00

AIS showing:  Name as OASIS   Destination  Singapore EOPL, Underway, Speed 9 Knots, Heading 296 deg

 Strange In that area I would expect more frequent updates Also speed seems very low if she is using her own engines

Thanks, Bob and Roy !  It is true that there is dignity in making her way to the end under her own power. 

In regard to the speed, do you think she is conserving fuel ?

That is one thing that I feel so badly about is that QE2's propulsion system was basically ruined.  Terrible !!

Just looked at  a satellite view of Bhavnagar it looks to be more organised than the beaches of Alang,
hopefully her demise there will be a bit more dignified

I looked up both Alang and Bhavnagar. Alang is a census town in Bhavnager. Bhavnager is a very large area that includes Alang, so by saying Ruby is headed to Bhavnagar, she could very well end up at Alang. The actual city of Bhavnagar is a bit inland, so the green company, who lists Bhavnagar as its headquarters, must have a ship breaking location somewhere on the coast.

There is an office address and a site address on that website so their headquarters could be inland and remote from the actual shipbreaking yard

I was now able to get to the gallery.  Wonder if Cunard knows that QM2 is advertising a ship breaking company...
