DP World unveils plan to build marina for luxury yachts at Rashid Port

I wonder what implications (if any) this will have for QE2

Perhaps our beloved ship will finally find a place where she will be appreciated.  Since she in all probability can not come home, let us hope she finds happy moorings in Dubai at long last.

Let's really hope this is what Port Rashid will look like with QE2 a part of it all. Images looking promising
