There does seem to be a small trend toward at least shopping some of these classic ocean liners as possible floating hotels/museums. Not the fate of Regal Empress, of course. QE2 is the most recent example (and Queen Mary prior). And this from Saga Holidays, whose Saga Rose will be retiring from cruise travel later this year:
"Whilst what the future has in store for her in 2010 and beyond is not yet agreed, the option of being a hotel ship is being considered. There are many places across the globe that would benefit from the presence of this beautiful classic liner and no preferred location has yet emerged."
