QE2 Farewell to Florida Qe2fl10

Poignant send-off of Iconic Cunard liner marked by festivities and flotilla

April 11, 2008 – QE2, the most famous passenger ship in the world and Cunard’s longest serving ocean liner, departed Port Everglades in grand style yesterday afternoon as locals of Ft. Lauderdale gathered to say bon voyage for the last time amidst a flotilla of local boating enthusiasts. Port Everglades has been the Florida winter home for QE2 nearly every cruise season since 1971.

In commemoration of the special occasion, local Nova High School’s 45-piece concert band provided musical pageantry fit for a Queen as the ship pulled away from the port for the last time.

Currently completing her 26th and final World Cruise, QE2 sailed into Ft. Lauderdale after making her final transit through the Panama Canal. Her onward journey will take her to New York before heading to her homeport in Southampton, England.

QE2 will leave the Cunard fleet in November this year to become a first-class tourist destination in Dubai.

Lovely photograph.

You don't believe the guff about Dubai do you? I cannot quite see how she's land up a "first class tourist destination".....
