The Pavilion at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth 2 Hotel, managed by Accor, was a sight to behold during its annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony on Friday 8th December 20, a cherished festive tradition eagerly anticipated by families and children alike.

The beautiful evening unfolded with a captivating performance by the renowned Dubai Singers, who enthralled guests with a selection of traditional Christmas carols, setting the tone for a night filled with festive cheer. The enchanting atmosphere was further enlivened by a special guest appearance by Santa Claus, who, in a delightful detour from the North Pole, warmly greeted the families, spreading joy and excitement among the children. Each family was presented with a festive Marks & Spencer goodie bag, a thoughtful gesture that added to the spirit of giving and celebration.

The highlight of the ceremony was the magnificent Christmas tree coming to life in a spectacular display of lights. This magical moment was made even more special as it was performed by a lucky child, the winner of the evening’s raffle, symbolizing the joy and wonder of the season.

Ferghal Purcell, the General Manager of The QE2 added, “The Christmas Tree Lighting at the ship is more than just an event; it’s a unique experience that brings together our Guests in celebration of the festive spirit. We are delighted to see the happiness and wonder it brings to everyone, especially the children. And with it, we mark the arrival of the festive season, unfolding an exciting line-up of events from traditional Christmas lunches to grand New Year celebrations, all wrapped in the rich history of the QE2.”

Following the lighting ceremony, the celebrations continued as guests shared in the joy of the season at the Lido restaurant, indulging in a lavish festive-themed buffet dinner. The Pavilion at Queen Elizabeth 2 Hotel, through this memorable event, not only illuminated its Christmas tree but also the hearts of all who attended, making it an unforgettable experience that truly captured the essence of the holiday season.
