Hauppauge, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
For the third consecutive year, Royal Caribbean International has selected Direct Line Cruises, Inc. to partner with them at the New York Times Travel Show at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. This year’s show, which will be held Saturday, February 26 (from 10 am – 6pm) and Sunday, February 27 (from 10 am – 4pm), will feature nearly 600 travel exhibitors from every segment of the industry and virtually every travel destination in the world. Exhibitors from the cruise industry will include Royal Caribbean International and its “sister” companies, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises, as well as several other major cruise lines.
The combined Royal Caribbean / Direct Line Cruise booth (#511) will be located right at the center of the Cruise Exhibit section. Free brochures will be on hand for all Royal Caribbean cruises, including year-round departures from their homeport in “Cape Liberty”, which is located on the New Jersey side of the Statue of Liberty. Featured show deals (including special pricing and free onboard credits) will also be available on many Royal Caribbean ships, including the fabulous Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, the largest, most innovative cruise ships in the world.
“As Royal Caribbean’s Northeast Partner of the Year, we are absolutely delighted to again have this opportunity”, said Helen Coiro, President and co-founder of Direct Line Cruises. “The show is so hectic, but we love it!”
In addition to greeting thousands of visitors to the booth, members of the Royal Caribbean and Direct Line Cruises staff will conduct a live stage presentation on European cruises at 12:30 pm on Saturday. Then, on Sunday at 11am, the stage presentation will feature Caribbean cruises. Other featured presentations at the NY Times Travel show will include live appearances by renowned travel guidebook writer Rick Steves (10am on Saturday), Arthur and Pauline Frommer (11am on Saturday), plus cruise line executives Keith Lane (VP of Field Sales, Celebrity Cruises), Cynthia Cobb (Regional Sales Director-Northeast, Royal Caribbean International) and Larry Pimentel (President, Azamara Club Cruises) at 1pm on Saturday, February 26. Sunday’s lineup of speakers will include Patricia Schultz (author of “1,000 Places To See Before You Die”) at 12 noon, Samantha Brown (everybody’s favorite Travel Channel personality) at 1 pm and Steve Perillo of Perillo Tours. And, this is just a sampling of all that is going on.
