We’re absolutely fascinated by the images taken of the QE2’s bridge. The legendary ship’s home at the Mina Rashid port has been a gathering point for various tours, brunches and more, but now you can get a glimpse inside the command room where former captains sailed the high seas. It’s a big deal as only the senior crew and the most important of people were allowed access in the ship’s heyday.
The bridge is a real throwback. It has obviously been well preserved since it stopped cruising the oceans, but it feels like a snapshot that has been frozen in time.
The lo-fi tech of switches and knobs look archaic by today’s standards. You can almost smell the nostalgia from the wood trim and carpet combo. It really is a relic, but it’s one that we love.
