NEW YORK,  March 5, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting Live
Nation Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: LYV), Six Flags Entertainment Corp. (NYSE:
SIX), Carnival Corporation (NYSE: CCL), Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL)
and HomeAway, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWAY). Today's readers may access these reports free

HomeAway, Inc. Research Report

Home Away - the world's leading online marketplace for vacation rentals -
reports a surge on East Coast vacation hot spots such as Virginia Beach,  Myrtle
Beach  and Ocean City.  Even Jersey Shore  listings on the global vacation home
site jumped 259% - an all-time record for the area - compared to this same time
last year, according to HomeAway.com CEO  Brian Sharples. This is around four
months after super storm Sandy barreled through prime vacation destinations at
the Jersey shore. "The thing that is shocking to me is the increase in
properties, which is enormous," Sharples said. "This means that those homeowners
are a little more concerned about renting their homes, so they are spending
money on marketing to do so. If the number of properties is doubling and demand
is down, then there are probably some great values at the Jersey shore this
season." Add this to the company's 2012 financial results, wherein it
experienced a 22% revenue growth, things should be looking great for HomeAway.

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Research Report

Royal  Caribbean  unveils two new ships, the Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of
the Seas debuting in 2014 and 2015 respectively. These ships will be the first
in an exciting new line aptly named the Quantum Class, offering a "quantum leap
forward in cruising." Each ship weighs 158,000 tons and has a passenger capacity
of 4,100. "Our ships have always been designed for WOW and with Quantum of Seas,
we are excited to introduce Quantum cruising and the 'at sea' firsts that our
guests have come to expect from Royal Caribbean," said  Adam Goldstein,
President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. Royal  Caribbean  has also
named Emmy and Tony award-winning actress  Kristin Chenoweth  as godmother to
its new ships. Historically an honor reserved for heads of state, politicians
and celebrities, godmothers not only break a bottle to christen a ship, but also
serve as guiding spirits to its guests and crew. Royal  Caribbean  looks to
capture the essence of the role by choosing women whose life lessons and
achievements illustrate the kind of courage, dedication and determination that
are an inspiration to all. The Full Research Report on Royal Caribbean Cruises
