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.
