    From my experience cruise lines COULD do more than shred loss making operations if they needed to cut cost. Cruise ships are very labour-intensive due to in part design choices and in part the traditional way that things are done onboard a cruise ship (this is, at least compared to cruiseferries filling a roughly similar function). If nescessary, I think by changing the labour-intensive practices of onboard work the number of crew could be cut and hence crewing expenses – which I believe are the largest single expense on a cruise ship – would also drop.

      I agree, However I would imagine this would be a more long term approach, and no doubt as the growth of the cruise market continues that this will become the main way cruise lines cut costs. In fact I had already heard that Ocean Village moved more restuarants to the buffet format, reducing crew numbers accordingly. Just small working practices can save the cruise lines significantly.
