Abstract

When cruise lines develop new itineraries, a myriad of factors are taken into consideration. These range from logistics, such as provisioning or tendering, to the public perception of an itinerary or individual destination. Although some factors are universally important, the role of many others may vary depending on the size of the cruise line and its vessels. In addition, port selection criteria may have a different weighting for ports-of-call and for home ports. For instance, airlift services, a good connection between the air and sea terminals and hotel capacity play a decisive role in the case of home port activities but are not considered in the choice of ports-of-call.
