As a liner fan and former QE2 passenger, I have mixed feelings about this news.

First, I am sad to read that she will no longer be plying the seas. I am also dismayed that she is ending up in Dubai, as it means I shall never see her again. I saw a television report (60 Minutes, I believe), that exposed the horrid conditions that the immigrant workers on the Dubai tourist construction project were forced to endure.

Then again, at least she won't end up like my beloved SS Norway, who remains languishing off the coast of Alang.

I think I have to let this absorb...
