The former celebrated cruise liner the QE2 could be moved to Asia after being converted to a luxury floating hotel.
Since making her final voyage from Southampton to her current berth in Dubai in 2008, the ship's future has been uncertain due to the financial crisis in the emirate in recent years.
The latest news for the former ocean-going liner, which was sold for £50m to the United Arab Emirates real estate developer Nakheel, is that following an extensive refurbishment, she will be taken to "an unnamed Asian city", where she will operate as a five-star, 500-bedroom hotel.
Launched in 1967, the 70,327-tonne QE2 carried around 1,900 passengers on each of its 26 voyages around the world, as well as making 30 Atlantic crossings every year.
