There are dozens of cruise sweepstakes out there. We listed a few in our recent post about traveling by winning sweepstakes. However, I have never before seen a contest where the winner gets to experience the Golden Age of cruising by sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on the Queen Mary 2. This fall, Cunard (who owns the Queen Mary 2) is offering one lucky winner a seven-night voyage for two 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 on the cruise. (The retail value is $4562.)
Facilities aboard the Queen Mary 2 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 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!
