We also have pictures of this vessel under the folowing name(s).

Extra info:
When these pictures were taken she was the fastest cruise ship in the world (07/2008).

She's normally an ocean liner, but we give her a place in our cruise section

QE2 retired from active Cunard service on 27 November 2008, where it was planned for her to begin conversion to a floating hotel which would have seen her eventually moored at the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai. However, since 4 June 2009, she remains moored at Port Rashid awaiting an uncertain future

In March 2017, a Dubai-based construction company announced it had been contracted to refurbish the ship. The grand opening is set for October 2018.

on 18 April 2018, following an extensive refurbishment, Queen Elizabeth 2 reopened as a floating hotel.
Over 2.7 million man-hours were committed to the work to upgrade and rebuild the ship to meet hotel standards.

The ship was sold in May 2022 to Accor, a French hotel group.
Accor has announced plans to further renovate the vessel, following completion there will be 447 hotel rooms for public booking

Converted? This vessel was converted from cruise liner to floating hotel in the year 2011.
