A great find  :) I'm not sure why it is but she seems to loose her majesty when she's all those cranes and things around her. They make her look so much smaller than she was in real life.

Doesn't she look peculiar with red, grey and beige superstructure? :o

If that was her final undercoating of paint - 
Do you think it will be doing enough to protect her?
QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

I think her last bottom painting was in 2006... she should have been done again early last year, which is why the waterline looked so messy in her final season, but they cancelled her full refit and gave her an in-dock mini refit instead, poor thing.  She hasn't been completely stripped bare and completely re-painted since 1999 I think... ?

Rob - the very thought
'Stripped bare in Dubai'?

If that's what she's in for, then maybe she's much better off where she is now!

Lloyd Werft cared for QE2 wonderfully - the ship's latter years were made possible due to the excellent work done at that yard.

Incidentally, there are some awesome photographs of QE2 in dry dock coming this October in "The QE2 Story" courtesy of Cunard, Lloyd Werft and Kenny Campbell.

It was ever a great pleasure for they workers of the : LLOYD WERFT from BREMERHAVEN to recieve the QE2 for a refit !

http://www.fotocommunity.de/search?q=qe2+bremerhaven

Here a photo from the inside of the bar : " Die letzte Kneipe for New York " ( " The Last Bar before New York ") .
This bar is located just on the Lloyd Werft , many workers came here after the working day for a drink .
The bar is full of photos from many Ships who came to Bremerhaven for a refit .
2 Ships was very apprecied here many years : the s/s NORWAY (ex FRANCE) & the rms QE2 .

The most beautiful ship in the world showcased against one of the ugliest cruise ships in the world.  ;D The Princess design is soon to be eclipsed by the NCL Epic though.  :P
