There had been reports on Christmas Eve that the liner, bought by Dubai investment firm Istithmar for around $100 million in 2007, was about to be sold to a Chinese firm for scrap metal. Cunard Line reacted to the claims on the company's Facebook page. They said:
"We have noted the recent article in the Daily Mail with reference to QE2. We remain in close contact with Dubai and can reassure you that to the very best of our knowledge this story is pure speculation - our best advice would be to ignore the story."
