Floating hotel to open in Dubai next week

Just over 10 years after Dubai acquired it, the Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) ocean line – which has been restored as a floating hotel – is set to open. 

On April 18, the QE2 will have a soft launch, which will be followed by a more formal opening.

Rooms at the vessel will start at around $163 (AED600), with discounted deals expected in Ramadan, which starts in mid-May.

It houses 224 refurbished rooms and suites, 13 food and beverage venues, 25 meeting and conferencing facilities and a number of retail shops, according to the ship’s new website which hotel operators updated ahead of the launch. More
