QE2 Stops in Hawaii for the Last Time

QE2 in Honolulu

Cunard Line’s Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) cruise ship made its last stop ever in Hawaii on her current iteniary yesterday (March 25). She came into Honolulu Harbor early yesterday morning (at around 5 am) and left early this morning at 1:00 a.m. The legendary cruise liner is on its way to Los Angeles, retirement and the history books.

Late this year Cunard Line will retire the QE2 . The mighty ocean liner will be sold to an investment firm in Dubai where she will set sail for in November. Once there she will be refurbished and converted to a “floating luxury hotel, museum, retail and entertainment destination.”

The QE2 has been a regular Honolulu port visitor on her annual around the world cruises. Upon leaving Honolulu today, she set sail for Lahaina, Maui.
