Abstract
In this paper we present a discrete event simulation model of a cruise terminal for decision support and strategic planning. The main objective is to provide an analysis tool for systems with high capacity constraints, heterogeneous subsystems, time-dependent demand and stochastic passenger transfer and travel times. Cruise terminals are connected by bus to a transport interchange or intermobility center where passengers are transferred to taxis. All terminals are affected by capacity constraint...
