More information were reported on Monday about the inauguration of the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) in Dubai as the city’s recent tourism attraction.
The legendary cruiser will open its doors to the people on Thursday with PCFC Hotels – part of the Dubai government’s Ports, Customs and Free Zones Corporation – disclosing her accommodation, dining and entertainment attractions.
The world-popular cruise liner, which is now docked forever at Mina Rashid, will embrace passengers on board to experience a selection of beautifully constructed rooms and suites as part of phase one of the inauguration.
They will even locate five of the planned 13 restaurants and bars and find her rich history in the neighbouring QE2 Heritage Exhibition.
The grand opening of the QE2 will occur in October.
CEO of PCFC Hotels, Hamza Mustafa stated, “To finally open the QE2 is a dream come true for my team and I. It is one of Dubai’s most highly anticipated projects and we know that a lot of people are going to be very excited to see her for the first time, or to step back on board the vessel that created so many wonderful memories during her 40 years at sea.”
He also said, “We have dedicated more than 2.7 million man-hours into transforming this legendary ocean liner into the multi-faceted tourist destination that she is today and I am very proud to reintroduce her to the world as she embarks on the next stage of her celebrated journey. It has been an honour to work on this wonderful project.”
The 13-deck hotel has been established to her former glory – conserving her most loved interior design features – including her renowned paintings, period furniture and popular memorabilia. The original porthole windows still add a maritime feel to the attractive modernized guest rooms and a number of her original restaurants have maintained the same names and décor as her former years.
Next to the hotel lobby is the QE2 Exhibition – an interactive museum that showcases the QE2 during the 60s when she was a pioneer in design, technology and lifestyle.
From tiny but beautifully designed ‘cabin’ style Standard Rooms beginning at 17 sq m, to the 76 sq m Royal Suites belonging to the Queen herself – the QE2 will provide a selection of 13 room and suite categories for guests.
The gem in the crown of the QE2 are the two Royal Suites named after the Queen’s mother and grandmother which provide a private veranda, conservatory and dining room – additionally to a luxurious bedroom.
During the soft launch of the QE2, passengers can also experience some of the ship’s original restaurants including The Grand Lounge, The Chart Room, The Pavilion, The Golden Lion, Lido and the Yacht Club.
The hotel’s signature restaurant is The Queens Grill which provides a refined selection of British fine-dining dishes also a tasting menu that regenerates a classic selection of dishes from 1969.
