Dubai, Jan 19 (IANS/WAM) Luxury ocean liner Queen Elizabeth 2, popularly known as QE2, will be renovated and converted into a floating hotel in Dubai.

Before its retirement move to Dubai in November 2008, the QE2 took regular cruises around the world as well as operated as a scheduled liner across the Atlantic Ocean between Southampton and New York.

The ship carried 2.5 million passengers, sailed nearly six million miles and completed 806 trans-Atlantic crossings during 39 years of service.

The ship will be converted into a five-star hotel with 500 rooms managed by a prestigious international hotel as an operator.
