No Longer Seen In these Parts QE2 departs The Solent
Now in retirement the QE2 waits its fate in Dubai. Sold by Cunard to become a floating hotel, but due to the economic downturn it's not known what will happen to her... The scrap yard is NOT out of the question, yet! On her VERY last voyage into Southampton Water after 40 years of coming in ... she ran aground on a sandbank. ... Spooky!
