WTM news: Queen Elizabeth 2 to expand offerings for 2020

Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) in Dubai has announced that they will be adding new suites, restaurants and tours in the coming year.

Having just opened its doors to the public in April of last year, the floating hotel will already be updating the ship with two decks worth of new rooms and suites, The Pavilion restaurant, and will also be launching the bridge tours in December.

By 2020, the ship will also see a new, signature restaurant known as The Queen’s Grill, a new conference centre, attracting international clients and events, and more leisure facilities.

Speaking to Travel Bulletin about these updates, Katie King, director of marketing, said: “All these new projects are very modern, yet they retain their nautical charm. Even if you’re not coming to stay onboard, a lot of visitors do like to visit the ship and have a look.”

In 2020, the QE2 wishes to expand its reach in its key markets, which include, the UK, Western Europe, India and Saudi.

An obvious upcoming project for the ship is working with the hugely anticipated Dubai Expo 2020: “We are working with delegates and offering generous packages. We want to align the QE2 as a top 10 hotel destination in Dubai,” explained Katie.

QE2 have already made arrangements with tour operators and will be offering training and FAM trips for agents in the coming year. Travel agents will have access to special stay rates to have a first-hand experience of staying aboard the QE2, and thus be better able to sell a stay at the luxury ship to clients.
