Hong Kong or Singapore is likely to be the new home for the QE2 according to the Oceanic Group. As reported by the South China Morning Post, Oceanic Group's Managing Director Daniel Chui confirmed that "the perfect location is definitely Hong Kong or Singapore". Singapore's Oceanic Group has entered into an agreement with Drydocks World to lease the ship for a reported US$1 million a year.

Hong Kong or Singapore would be an initial base; Chui also discussed a long term plan for the QE2 to be rotated between Asian countries, spending a number of years in Hong Kong, before moving onto Japan for a period time, and then on to South Korea.

According to the article, the QE2 is currently undergoing maintenance on seven of her nine engines in Dubai, which should be completed in 3-4 months. The QE2 will then sail to China, via Hong Kong for a US$100 million 15-month long refit. The QE2 will emerge with 400 deluxe rooms, 100 suites and retail space.
