With robust activity throughout the two-day event, the New York Times Travel Show continues to demonstrate that this yearly expo remains an important forum for the travel industry. The attendance and participation at the 2012 show proved that despite the economy, the travel industry is resilient and poised for renewed growth. However, for the consumer, getting the best value for their vacation dollar was a critical prerequisite.

The show gave consumers the opportunity to explore their travel options with the over 500 exhibitors on hand, including a strong representation from the cruising sector.
The cost advantage of cruising, as compared to a land based vacation, became apparent to those that were shopping at the show. Due to the all-inclusive nature of a cruise, it is one of the most affordable ways to save on a vacation.

Those that visited the Royal Caribbean booth were able to inquire about Royal Caribbean ships and itineraries with the assistance of the experienced cruise consultants of Direct Line Cruises.

"We appreciate the exposure that the New York Times Travel Show gives us," said Greg Coiro, CEO of Direct Line Cruises, Inc. He continued on to say, “Working alongside Royal Caribbean continues to demonstrate that the WOW factor of their product combined with the good value associated with booking through Direct Line Cruises, always leads to success.”

The New York Times Travel Show was held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center this past weekend. The expo educates, entertains and inspires attendees by giving them the chance to travel around the world in a New York minute. It continues to be one of the most important trade and consumer shows in the United States.
