Retired QE2 to become New Luxury Hotel in Accor Portfolio in Dubai

Accor has added former Cunard vessel Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) to its portfolio, and the ship will reportedly undergo upgrades and renovation before joining the hotel company’s MGallery Hotel Collection.

After sitting for almost ten years in Dubai, QE2 opened as a floating hotel in APR under PCFC Hotels, which is owned by the Dubai government, reports Seatrade Cruise News. Accor added the vessel in collaboration with PCFC Investments LLC, a private boutique equity firm. It’s a “unique project which brings diversity to the portfolio, while expanding the MGallery brand presence in the city,” said Mark Willis, CEO of Accor India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey.
