Default QE2 in Dubai

Just read that the OE2 is on the way here to be a floating hotel. Where's it going to go, and isn't there already enough hotels in Dubai?!?

It will be moored at Palm Island, was scheduled to be here September when it finishes it's last trip I think.

Wouldn't be surprised if it's the first casino here.

Let's hope they hire a good live band to perform at the arrival ceremony. My money is on the Dave Clark Five or possibly The Monkees.

apart from the 'all equal' bit, that sounds rather like the UAE, if you replace 'PM and karma' with 'law breaking and ownership'... so in a way, you equate the UAE with a socialist paradise. Interesting...
