All aboard: QE2 set to reopen on October 1
Feel as though you’ve stepped back in time with this iconic historical hotel…
Dubai’s very own piece of history will be opening its doors for the first time since March on Thursday October 1. The 13-deck hotel is already accepting bookings and preparing to reopen its restaurants, including The Pavilion – an alfresco dining concept over looking the Port Mina Rashid Yacht Club.
The fifty-three year old ship has been on an incredible journey throughout its life, travelling the world 25 times before coming to retire in the UAE. The Queen Elizabeth II now operates as a floating hotel, with 224 refurbished rooms and suites, dining, entertainment and events.
