Yes it was definitely a sign! It is sad, but even more so that the priceless paintings and other artefacts are going to Dubai too!
Going to watch her departure now. But you are right, there is something very poignant. After al the many departures and arrivals at southampton. Why today of all days did she decide to go on that sandbank? Goodbye and we will all miss you.
She was definatley telling us something like many others I dont think she wanted to go to Dubai, and I wish she had stayed here as a floating hotel. I will really miss going on her and cannot get any enthusiasm to try the new ships.
