No permission is required - all the artwork was sold with the ship so every model, painting etc is owned by Dubai so they are free to do whatever they want with them.

I was only referring to the  CUNARD lettering ..  previously they were told they couldn't have the Cunard logo anywhere without permission ?

I spy what could be the Britannia model that was on Boat Deck at A? Stairwell in the background of the second terminal photo Louis posted.

My poor photos from July 2008.
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2 in her new life, in Dubai, in January 2020 and August 2022.

Re: Cunard lettering and logos - they are able to use the name and logo wherever it was previously used without permission.

I'm happy to see that all these pictures and memorabilia are seeing the light of day again, but with so many being on display outside the ship, instead of where they belonged inside the ship, I wonder how the interiors now look like without them.

I can't say how or where I've seen the latest interior photos , as Rob posted earlier today in another topic, but she's looking better than she's done for many years and at least one significant painting is still onboard. I may have said too much  :-X ...

They were all boxed up when i was there (it had just been done) and she looked very, very bare.  But what better way to choose what to put back where, than to have them all spread out in an air conditioned building, right next to the ship.

I like the idea of having all the items on display for people to view prior to boarding the QE2 and maybe people boarding other ships/boats at Port Rashid, which would encourage them to book to go aboard the ship and see more.

Exactly Marc-Antoine, I couldn't agree with you more :)

The works of art, models, copies of models, heritage collection - as well as furnishings, lights and lighting, muster signs etc etc have all been a part of the Spirit of QE2 - and of Cunard as the company was, when QE2 was alive and kicking.

Currently it feels as if one of my closest relatives has been ambushed, stripped and left undressed.
Keeping fingers crossed that someone has the sense to re-instate as much of the collection as possible and install it as originally it was - on board, and in situ - the new cruise terminal only needs a few pictures, no-one's going to be any the wiser if they are 'divorced, living in the Annexe' - and the models certainly should be kept on the ship along with Britannia, the Falklands wooden plaque etc etc etc....

At least her owners (not the previous owners who brought her to Dubai) have the option to put the memorabilia back on board and may yet choose to do so.

Oh i beg you stop... the photographer must have been reading this and is deciding to add his own creative artistry by taking squint photos,  my mind is now even more jarred , the fine smooth flowing lines away to hell in a hand cart...replaced by MFI shelving units and now even more is a mix mash, my headache at fever pitch, l fear l need to go and lay down in a darkened room with some smellling salts..l may be away some time.

it might also have the effect of wanting them to jump overboard...the jarred lines ..oh you get the idea..

This is also my thinking! 

It is likely that not all the areas that had paintings and items on display when QE2 was in service, will be accessed by the hotel guests and members of the public, so they are using the Terminal building to display items.  Once other parts of the ship are opened then items could be moved back onboard.

maybe they are fooling us, all the originals are still on board unpacked & hung where they used to be, the ones in the terminal building are repros  for sale on board , for any discerning guest to buy     situated in the bookshop, (hey you got to hope)

Oh Pete, If only....!
One of the redeeming features of the exercise could also mean that the reference books from the Library might be stowed safely nearby.
I've tried to find similar copies, to find and read them again would be so very good.
