Dubai will welcome the most famous ocean liners in the world when the arrival of Queen Mary 2 coincides with the opening of the Queen Elizabeth 2 hotel.

Guests traveling on QM2 will have the opportunity to join VIPs and local media at the opening of the QE2 on 18th April.  Future guests will also have the chance to visit when QM2 returns to Dubai in January and April 2019 as part of her World Voyage.

"On behalf of Cunard, we are so excited for our guests sailing on Queen Mary 2 to be of the first to board the QE2 Hotel in Dubai," said Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America. "QE2 holds a very special place in Cunard's history, and we hope that the ship will continue to be enjoyed by many guests to come."
