Not really an event, but the Christmas Tree is up at the stern of QE2.

Good to see the QE2 has her Christmas Tree on deck. I wonder if they will have an event for the switching on of the lights.

Would love to see picture of Christmas decorations on the ship if anyone is onboard for the festive season.

Just before the Pandemic, dear old Queen Mary had her bow well lit up.  :-*
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

QE2 Dubai have announced planned events 5 to 7 May 2023 to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

Details have been posted to book for a Coronation Ball, Coronation Afternoon Tea, plus screening of the Coronation Event in the Golden Lion Pub.  Most important is the Heritage Tours conducted 6 and 7 May to inform people about the ship's history.

Christmas Tree Lighting  on QE2 Dubai sounds like a "wish I could be there event"

I hope we can get some photos. 

If anyone is going to be onboard, please post.

On 8 December the festive season events program got off to a good start with the switching on of the Christmas Tree lights. 

The Christmas Tree lighting ceremony was a huge success, with some 300 adults and kids present. The Dubai Singers were a wonderful and welcome addition to the evening.

Thank-you to Ferghal Purcell, General Manager, Accor Group for the photos and information about the event.
