An article in the UK's Daily Mail suggests that the QE2's owners Isthimar, a division of Dubai Ports World, may have sold the ship to Chinese scrappers for 20 million GBP. The story was picked up by the London Telegraph and Southampton Daily Echo, but Cunard refuted it, saying they are "in regular contact" with Dubai and would have been notified. The agreement between the two firms stipulates that DPW cannot resell the ship for ten years.
