So..its taken 2 years and 110 manpower (we are assuming this is number of men working and not number of hours worked on project )

Lifeboats discarded on the quayside
Life boat Davits cut away and dumped on quayside
Wash and brush up
Mulit coloured lights hung from strategic points
Some cabins having work done on them...

Lets not open the champagne yet...   :o
or am l completely missing the point ?

I am confident but for me I will be dancing in delight when and if she is connected to the electricity grid and connected to the water and sewage systems.

And quite rightly so..Its the QE2 for gods sake  >:(, are we just supposed to sit here and accept carte blanche, accept all the lies that have been peddled out over the years . This is a discussion forum to discuss things, we post things and we discuss things, we may not like what we hear, we may not like whats being said, but that the beauty of it.

I am loath to say it... but we have seen timelines before, and there is no telling whether this one is better than previous ones.

And yet, hope springs eternal, QE2 is still there, her funnel intact, and so we shall wait and see, hoping for the best, and my own feeling is just a bit more hopeful than it has been for many a year. Louis, your contacts in Dubai and the photos they enable you to share with us, are very helpful in this regard too, as we can see or guess a little bit of what may or may not be going on. And above all, we know that there are many people in Dubai keeping a watchful eye on her!

When i spoke to her managers recently they just said they 'were at a very early stage'. I'm sure she's still a very long way off opening.

The handover for August 2017 is just the job done by Shafa and handed back to DP World after this still more has to be done

I've done more in nine or so years.. (nothing renovation related)
Let's cut them some slack. They have a lot of work to do and more to be done.

"After months of speculation regarding a gradual increase in activity aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2 in Dubai’s Port Rashid, Al Shafa Construction company has finally gone public with details of the project.3rd March 2017."

This company is only in charge of the Public Rooms and Passenger Cabins the work should be done by the handover in August 2017.

Please note latest new models of the marina like the one below was made public for the first time during the Dubai Boat Show last week
