The leg­endary Queen Elizabeth 2 has opened its doors, mark­ing the first of sev­eral phases in which sec­tions of the liner will wel­come pas­sen­gers on board. The ini­tial phase, or“soft open­ing,” fea­tures beau­ti­fully re­stored rooms and suites, and an op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover five of the planned 13 restau­rants and bars.

The iconic cruise liner, which has a his­tory span­ning five decades, is now docked per­ma­nently at Mina Rashid. PCFC Ho­tels – part of the Dubai govern­ment’s Ports, Cus­toms and Free Zones Cor­po­ra­tion – has re­stored the 13-deck ho­tel as a must-see tourism des­ti­na­tion. The grand launch of the QE2 will take place in Oc­to­ber.
