Clamber aboard the QE2 for a fancy night of frivolity at a fraction of the usual cost.
The offer for UAE residents is available during the soft opening phase of the hotel ahead of the grand launch in October.
Until Sunday September 30 you can get 15 percent off the best flexible rate online, complimentary buffet breakfast for two, an upgrade to a higher room category and 25 percent off food and drinks throughout your stay – so you can live like royalty even if you don’t have the bank balance to match.
The QE2 was given its name by Queen Elizabeth in 1976, who named the vessel after her mother in front of an audience of 30,000 at John Brown’s shipyard on Clydebank in Scotland.
On May 2 1969 the boat made her first transatlantic voyage and went on to complete 1,400 subsequent voyages across six million nautical miles, ferrying almost 2.5 million passengers.
Twenty-five tours around the world and 39 years later, the QE2 retired in the Dubai sunshine where she has let down her hatches to welcome visitors once again, this time as a luxury hotel.
If you want to have a gander around the decks without staying over, you can head to the QE2 iftar during Ramadan.
The purpose-built majlis is on the ship’s largest deck and can host up to 250 people.
We can’t wait for a scout around.
Prices vary. Offer available until Sun Sep 30. Queen Elizabeth 2, Mina Rashid, Deira, www.qe2.com (04 526 8888).
