THE QE2 STORY:Keeping the Legend Alive

THE QE2 STORY is a website dedicated to one of the greatest ships the World has ever seen, the website was registered in 2008 year that the ship ended her career as an ocean-going passenger ship, by Rob Lightbody. Today the site is quite possibly the most popular website on the Internet devoted to the QE2. A forum was launched in January 2009 to keep the ship alive with comments from people that worked on her, travelled on her and have been admiring the ship throughout the World.
QE2 was the flagship of the British Merchant fleet  for 35 years since 1969 until the new QM2 was introduced in 2004. Queen Elizabeth 2 was the last of many British-built Transatlantic Liners born on the Clyde.


Today the ship is still intact at Dubai, her interiors are kept intact and in pristine order by an active crew of experts of 38 people, one of her nine Diesel-generators is working full time to provide power to the ship, she was recently visited by Rob who was greatly impressed by the maintenance she receives on permanent basis, all this and a lot more can be experienced on this most brilliant website www.theqe2story.com

  1. Infelizmente nunca vi o QE2 pessoalmente, quanto menos pisei a bordo. Essa segunda parte, provavelmente, se nada der errado em Dubai, eu ainda possa fazer. Mas vê-lo entrar em um porto é outra coisa, não? Isso para não falar em viajar nele...

    O QE2 e um navio em todos os termos e aspetos sensacional, testemunho de uma epoca simbolica, eu viajei nele duas vezes em 1996 e adorei a experiencia, perdi conta as vezes que o fotografei e admirei essa obra de arte maravilhosa, o que eu gostave mesmo era que o navio voltasse a navegar, nao sendo possivel pelo menos que seja preservado como esta e que eu o Daniel e tantos outros como nos o possamos visitar.

    Abraco
