With the rise in popularity of the cruise market, several schemes and procedures are planned in order to cater for this advancement. Mainly, this paper demonstrates the principal approaches towards constructing plans for designing cruise routes. First and foremost, each port is ranked according to its attractiveness under four indexes, namely marine services, customs clearance services, transport services and tourism services. Secondly, with the aim of creating asymmetric links and the shortest path, a planning model is formulated to select and rank the ports of call. The aim of the model is to gain the optimal revenue per voyage, with considerations of time window and voyage duration. With regards to small-scale and large-scale port collections, the traversal and randomised algorithms are adopted to find the practical routes. Furthermore, an empirical analysis of routes in South Asia is given. Above all, this paper aspires to aid future route planning and unleash increased potential in consumer markets.
