Nakheel, the Dubai-based owner of the ex-Cunard liner QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 has confirmed that the ship will be transferring to Cape Towns V&A Waterfront, in which Nakheel/Dubai World hold a substantial share.

The ship will arrive in Cape Town to be used initially as a floating hotel during the FIFA 2010 Soccer World Cup and will remain at an as yet unidentified berth for a minimum period of 18 months, during which time the ship will act as a floating hotel, restaurant and entertainment ship.

Nakheel said it expects that the ship will sail under her own power to Cape Town but will not be carrying any passengers.
