Queen Elizabeth 2 -
Today for the last time the QE2 is berthed in the Grand Harbour before it sails to a new life as a floating hotel in Dubai. The liner was sold last year for some 65 million euros to the Dubai World Company. The QE2 was launched in September of 1967 and has traveled around 6 million miles, making more than 800 trans-Atlantic crossings carrying 2.5 million passengers.
Today my friend and I went to take some photos of this wonderful ship and also had the chance to speak to 2 members of it's crew. I am also very happy with the first photo I took as I managed to get the whole ship in one photo and I was standing pretty close to the ship.
