Miami, FL, July 29, 2011 - Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq:IILG), announced that Interval Travel has earned the Norwegian Cruise Line’s President’s Club status for its 2010 sales results.

"Our travel partners are critical to our success and it’s important for us to show how much we appreciate their hard work and dedication. We’re thrilled to see Interval achieve the President’s Club status," said Lenny Martinez, Norwegian Cruise Line’s business development manager.
