From the more time to say good-bye department:

Since Cunard announced Queen Elizabeth 2 would be retired, "The demand for QE2's 2008 voyages has been phenomenal, said Cunard president Carol Marlow. To satisfy some of that demand (and make some extra money) the line has decided to forgo some scheduled drydock time in April and schedule an additional 8-day cruise.

The extra voyage, called Iberia in Bloom, will depart Southampton on April 27 (2008) with calls at La Rochelle (for Cognac), Le Verdon (for Bordeaux), Bilbao, La Coruna (for Santiago de Compostela) and Lisbon.

Details are available from Cunard.
