US markets closed flat after quarterly earnings from travel websites Tripadvisor and Priceline disappointed.
Those results weighed on the Nasdaq, but the Dow and the S&P 500 held steady after hitting record highs in the previous session.
The Nasdaq fell 18.66 points or 0.27% to 6,767.78.
A report that Canada's Brookfield Asset Management is looking to take private shopping mall property-owner GGP boosted property firm stocks.
Cruise lines also got a boost after Royal Caribbean Cruises said lower fuel costs helped to boost profits, which hit a record $752.8m in the quarter, up 9%.
The gain came despite more than $55m in losses stemming from disruption caused by the major hurricanes that struck in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean earlier this year.
Royal Caribbean shares increased by more than 3%. Optimism also lifted shares of rival cruise line Carnival Corp about 1%.
However, other travel companies did not fare so well.
Shares in Tripadvisor plunged nearly 19% a day after the booking and review website said hotel revenue had fallen 3% year-on-year, hurting profits.
Priceline also fell more than 13% after it said profit growth would be softer than in previous quarters.
The company said it faces tough year-on-year comparisons, but did not think there were broader structural reasons for the downshift.
