24303 Town Center Dr., Ste 200, Valencia, CA 91355, United States

This venerable British line (now owned by American company Carnival Corp.) carries on the tradition of operating impressive ocean liners, including on transatlantic routes. The 2,592-passenger Queen Mary 2 and 2,014-passenger Queen Victoria show off their pedigree in fine style. But whether you have a luxury experience depends on where you stay—your accommodations determine where you dine (the Queens Grill is best). Impressive features: British nannies; excellent Canyon Ranch–operated spas; Todd English’s Olives restaurants; a top-flight enrichment series (comedian/actor John Cleese is among the regular lecturers).
New and Newsworthy: A program introduced in 2009 brings aboard literary luminaries, such as Erica Jong and Christopher Buckley. Queen Elizabeth (sister to QV) debuts in October 2010.
Price: 6-night transatlantic sailings from $1,115 per person.
Geographic Areas: Transatlantic, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Northern Europe, Baltic, Canary Islands, New England/Canada, World Cruise.
Type: Premium/luxury.
