News Article "Details of QE2 Renovations in Dubai"
« on: Apr 05, 2017, 09:12 AM »
We received an email from a QE2 admirer, who gave us information about an article in Arabian Supply with details about QE2 renovations. 

The article quotes from the the company, contracted to to the work, Al Shafa's website "The QE2 Restoration is a multi-year project involving more than 30,000sqm of space."  This equates to around half of all the available floor space aboard the ship, so Al Shafa may only have been contracted to restore her public rooms and passenger cabins.

The person who forwarded the link cannot find any further collaboration but this information does fit in with other information and photos received and what we have been discussing on the QE2 forum.
