Default Selling my new product in Ship Stores

I've designed, patented and manufactured a great new product that I believe would be perfect for the cruise lines to license and sell on their ships, or even possibly a give-away. Can anyone give me the contact for the buyers so I can reach them and send them a sample?

Thanks in advance~

Good luck with your new product, but I would suggest, contacting the cruise lines directly and see if they can steer you in the right direction for selling them.

Best of luck.

I'm pretty certain all the cruise line's shops are concessions, so rather than get to the cruise lines, you'll need to get to the concessionaires.

I don't know what type of product you have, but if you have real faith in it, you may want to look at getting a booth at the Cruise Shipping Miami convention in March.

It's the largest cruise trade show in the world, and all the major players show up.

Thank you so much for the suggestions! I did not know about the cruise trade show and will definately get information on that! I checked out Surf Expo, but do not think that is the show for me. If you would like to take a look at my product, here is the link~!
