Modeling the Cabin Capacity Allocation Problem in the Cruise Industry: An Italian Case Study

Giusy Macrina, Francesca Guerriero, Luigi Pugliese

Abstract

In this paper we present several optimization models for cruise cabin capacity allocation. In particular, we address the problem of managing the booking requests for a set of cabins with different type and price in a cruise ship. We formulate three models, considering several features of the problem such as: the limited number of bookable places on the ship, different planning and operation horizon, the possibility to postpone a departure or to apply special offers. Then, we present an Italian case study and we analyze the impact of different strategies on the revenues achievable by the company.
