A five-star hotel with 244 rooms, as well as its own restaurants, shops, cinemas, a casino and a golf course , was opened on board a British royal ship moored in Dubai .
During the restoration of the vessel designers tried to preserve as much as possible the antique furniture and other original details, but at the same time the ship was equipped with the latest technology. One of the onboard restaurants will serve traditional British dishes according to the recipes of 1969.
Queen Elizabeth II was launched in 1967, since then it was considered the most famous cruise ship in the world, on which celebrities and monarchs traveled many times. After writing off the hotel chain CFC bought the ship and sent it to the UAE.
For its modernization, spent 10 years and 500 million dollars.
Always on the move.. . . Yesterday we were invited to have a sneak view on @qe2dubai, the legendary cruise ship docked in Dubai to become a floating hotel. Currently only 3 out 13 levels are opened to public. But if you or your lil ones ever dreamed to be in the open sea, do check out the museum and the ship. . . Жизнь – это движение (и желательно вверх)). . . Вчера нас пригласили на послеобеденный чай на легендарный лайнер @qe2dubai, более 30 лет бороздивший океаны, а сейчас пришвартованный в дубайском порту. . . На сегодняшний день посетителям открыты 3 палубы из 13, на которых разместятся более 600 гостиничных номеров, рестораны, кафе, бары и спа. . . Если вы или ваши дети мечтают о большой воде, о солёных каплях и порывистом ветре, не поленитесь доехать до Mina Port Rashid, чтобы взгянуть на океанский лайнер и посетить исторический музей. . . #sea #dream #ship #captain #life #move #grow #future #queenelizabeth #qe2dubai #mydubai #dubaimums #dubaimoms #dubaifamily #корабль #круиз #мечта #жизнь #развитие #движение #русскиемамочкивдубае #маминклуб #путешествуемсдетьми #жизньзаграницей

For the first time visited Queen Elizabeth 2 @qe2dubai on Queen Elizabeth’s 92nd birthday. Food at “Queens Grill” was soooo good. Dreaming about Artichoke and Garlic soup (not in the pictures) and Cold White Chocolate and mix Berry Fondant (dessert with pink ball). For the dessert lover – pre-dessert before dessert- excellent idea (first picture)!
