Cruise Industry Management (3006THS)

The cruise industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of tourism, and all major manifestations, including 'mass cruising', expedition cruising and river cruising, are investigated in this course. Global coverage is provided due to the diverse nature of the sector, but major cruising regions such as the Caribbean and Mediterranean are examined in particular because of their lessons for emerging cruise regions in the Asia-Pacific. Following an introduction to the history and geography of cruising, the course examines the structure of the industry and the operational dimensions of the typical cruise ship. Subsequent topics include marketing and relevant market segments, product diversification, revenue maximisation strategies, risk management, customer experience, ports-of-call, and 'private islands'. Contemporary trends that are discussed include ever larger 'mega-ships', the growth of the Chinese domestic and outbound market, environmental and social stewardship issues, niche target markets, and integration with other tourism sectors.
