Interesting Find - Original Plans Proposed for the Queen Elizabeth 2 in Dubai

Found this interesting artists rendering of the modifications proposed to the Queen Elizabeth 2 - when she was scheduled to be part of the Nakheel's Palm Jumeirah in Dubai in 2008. The plans included removing her funnel and using it as part of the grand entry to the ship. The space where her funnel was located, would be replaced with penthouses, only after her engines were removed and her engine room re-purposed to create more cabins and entertainment venues.

The global financial crisis shelved all of these plans.

New plans for the QE2 include full internal remodeling in China and becoming a Far East Hotel and Entertainment Center keeping most of her external appearance in place as well as her engines.
