- July 10th 2010 - Just a note to say that the situation with
QE2 in Dubai is unchanged. The ship still sits where she was,
with engines running, air-conditioning and safety systems live, and
a crew on board.
Everything essential is done, however some work is now being put on
hold until the ship's future is known. For instance items
which are only relevant if the ship is to take to sea again, are
being held off until they know when/if this will happen.
However the ship is still intact, and her contents are still in
place - the ship is still like she was left in November 2008.
You can keep an eye on the ship daily "live" via the port rashid
webcam and follow the latest news as it happens over at
