Time Out Says
The ship, which embarked on its maiden voyage in 1969, has been fully kitted out and restored to the glory of its heyday, for a touch of nostalgia.
The 13-deck hotel boasts 224 refurbished rooms and suites. Expect to sleep in comfy cabins, and enjoy the cosy, retro atmosphere on board.
If you’re looking to eat, book into fine dining restaurant The Queen’s Grill, a spot which has, in the past, been frequented by members of the British Royal Family. This eatery is steeped in history, and aims to “recapture the true essence of the Queen Elizabeth 2” – with a menu modelled on the original. There’s also The Yacht Club, which has been lovingly restored to its former décor. Open during the winter months, the terrace looks out over Dubai’s skyline and is ideal for a sundowner.
If you love a pub, visit The Golden Lion. There’s draught hops, live sports, pool tables and darts, so a proper pub experience is on board, too.
With plenty of other restaurants, bars and live entertainment venues, you’ll be spoilt for choice on one of the city’s, if not the world’s, most unique hotels.
