After four decades of plying the world’s oceans, the liner Queen Elizabeth 2 departed New York for the final time last night.

It will be converted into a five-star hotel in Dubai, the flashy resort center in the United Arab Emirates.

Launched in 1969, the QE2 has made at least 26 round-the-world voyages.

At 70,000 tons, less than half the size of the Queen Mary 2, it is still considered big enough to succeed as a desert luxury hotel.
