The Queen Mary 2, the world's largest and most expensive cruise ship, arrives in Florida after completing her maiden transatlantic voyage from Southampton, England. Cunard Lines, owned by the giant Carnival corporation, hopes the luxury liner — and the fanfare it's generating — will reverse the company's flagging fortunes. Hear NPR's Phillip Davis.
