What is the MCC for expedia.com and hotels.com?

Anybody know exactly how Citibank MasterCard classifies expedia.com and hotels.com as to its Merchant Classification Code? I have the Shop Your Way Master Card and they are offering a generous bonus if I spend $400/month on "travel". I've run into issues with these guys previously as to exactly how certain merchants are classified. The fine print says " Travel purchases are transactions made a hotels, rental cars, airfare, limousines, taxicabs and travel agencies". So how does expedia.com and hotels.com fit in? What is the exact MCC code applied to these merchants?

...and as long as I am venting, would cruise lines be considered "travel". Interestingly, cruise lines are specifically NOT mentioned in the fine print. Their MCC seems to fall under "transportation". Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks in advance for any specific info!

I looked at charges through our corporate P-card program and found the MCC codes for charges our employees made with these vendors
