If you’re like me, and the person you most want to travel with won’t get on a plane, there’s only one way to get to Europe–on a luxury ocean liner. However, such cruises not only take time, they take money.

Once a year, Cunard cruise lines hosts a contest where you can win a trip on the legendary Queen Mary 2, from New York City to Southampton, England.  The trip includes airfare to the ship and back from England, all ground transportation, a balcony stateroom aboard the ship, and all meals and entertainment on the cruise. (The retail value is $7,750.)

The Queen Mary 2 is like a floating luxury resort. Facilities aboard the ship include 15 restaurants and bars, five swimming pools, a full casino, the Canyon Ranch spa, a theater, an 8000-volume library, a shopping arcade and a planetarium.

You can enter once between now and November 30, 2012 at 9pm PST. You must be 21 years old and a resident of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia to be eligible to win. To try your luck, visit this page.

Good Luck and Bon Voyage!
