Opening of the Dubai Cruise Terminal
« on: Sep 04, 2018, 11:19 AM »
QE2 was alongside the Dubai Cruise Terminal when it was opened on 26 March 2001 by His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai.

She is now (pemanently?) berthed alongside the same Terminal.

I think that i have already posted my story reference this event some time ago, but there again i might not have and it is a bit difficult to portray the 'punchline' as it as very visual!

During her maiden call in 1997 QE2 docked in the same very berth as she is in today.
Only then the terminal building was not even build
