In The Video Mood - Part 7 - Synopsis of the Life of the Queen Elizabeth 2 - QE2

I saw this video and I knew I had to share it with visitors. This video is a synopsis of the life of Cunard Line's Queen Elizabeth 2. The QE2 was built in 1969 and sailed for Cunard until 2008. Her primary itinerary was transatlantic cruises between New York and Southampton.

Currently the liner is tied up in the backwaters of Dubai - awaiting her next assignment. Plan to covert her into a floating hotel and entertainment center in Dubai or Asia have fallen through.  Reports indicate that the pristine liner is receiving less care and upkeep now that her full time maintenance staff has been reduced.

It was also stated that there was a clause in her purchase agreement that stated she could not be resold for 10 years. If true that contract will expire in the next 2 years.

Hopefully the liner will find employment again. I hope you enjoy this video.
