SOUTHAMPTON, England, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- The British charter company behind a 100-year anniversary cruise following the Titanic's path said cabins are nearly sold out for the April 2012 trip.

Miles Morgan Travel said passengers from 26 countries, including relatives of 30 victims of the Titanic sinking, will depart April 8, 2012, from Southampton, England, on the Balmoral from Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, and memorial services will be held at the site of the sinking between 11:40 p.m. April 14, the time the Titanic hit the iceberg, and 2:20 a.m. April 15, when the ship went down, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

The ship will also stop in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where passengers will visit the graves of 121 victims of the sinking, before completing the journey in New York.
