The cruise industry, which is essentially a North American phenomenon, is the most successful and fastest growing sector of the tourism industry. This paper seeks to describe how cruise lines go about managing their cabin inventory with regard to the acceptance and cancellation of reservations, collection of deposits, and dealing with no shows, overbooking, over-sales, upgrades, auctions, and walks (with compensation). Individual as well as group bookings will be analyzed.
