It's been announced the QE2 is going to be refurbished into a luxury five star floating hotel.

The cruise ship, which hosted kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers and celebrities throughout its legendary 40-year history, will depart from Dubai and arrive in COSCO Shipyard’s facility in Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province.

Once there, it will receive a thorough revitalisation and a makeover which is scheduled for completion by 2015.
