  • QE2 started a dream to go to sea - now a reality!

That looks like the model of SS Russia (which Charles Dickens sailed back from the US onboard in 1867) behind Dudley Moore and the other interviewee earlier in the programme. This model is now found in the lobby/old cruise terminal building in Dubai, having last been located onboard on Boat Deck, A Stairway (near to the Britannia statue).

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.

And an Introduction as only Mr Norman could do :)
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
