This shows how close to QE2 some people are able to get, no doubt under certain well defined circumstances...

This event was held inside the Port Rashid with permission of DP World,on a normal day this area is out of bound for outsiders with no permission.

Anyone else noticed the pile of "stuff" on the decks .
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Yes. I wonder how much of it we'd recognise of we could get a closer look...

This was taken in early April 2017; it seems this pile has been cleared.

Thanks, Davina, for posting Sven's photo.  QE2 does indeed look beautiful.  But she has no flag flying and in this photo somehow looks very alone.

Hi Rob,
Thanks so much for this, and to Kadiannaveen.
Apart from 'The travesty of No Tenders - at nearly 10 years,
she's not looking as bad as she might have been (I s'pose), is she?

It is so lovely to remember her, recently I slept out (at sea) under moving stars - thinking hard about QE2 - and about how much hard work you have put in to keep her going.
Well Done, QE2 - and extra Well Done, Rob.
R.

Thanks.  I wonder what they're up to with the pool.  Some of my happiest QE2 memories were in or beside that pool - it was just lovely.

Why would they remove the pool. Isn't it hot in Dubai?

It is, but do bear in mind that Dubai is a Muslim country and there are certain rules about the amount of flesh that can be seen in public.  It's probably also better to swim indoors there anyway because of the intensity of the Sun - plus an outdoor pool will have constant issues with sand blowing into the water.

I'm not a sea swimmer - I'd never even thought about the problems of sand :o I wonder what's happening to the indoor pools and all the other bits that we can't see?
