Cunard Line Adds New Voyage to QE2’s Farewell Season
Cunard Line has announced an additional voyage to QE2’s 2008 Farewell Season. The company announced in June that the vessel would leave the fleet in November 2008 and begin a new life as a first-class hotel and entertainment destination in Dubai.
The new eight-day Iberia in Bloom voyage will depart Southampton on April 27, 2008 and call in France at La Rochelle (for Cognac) and Le Verdon (for Bordeaux), in Spain at Bilbao and La Coruna (for Santiago de Compostela) and in Lisbon, Portugal.
“The demand for QE2’s 2008 voyages has been phenomenal since we announced she was leaving the fleet,” said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line. “While we still have space on some sailings next year, the introduction of this new voyage means we can give people a further opportunity to experience the most famous ship in the world before she ceases her role as an ocean-going passenger vessel.”
