Cruises booked online are set to get the green light, with some sailing companies hoping to offer the option for passengers to book from their phone.
Cruises are still limited to the traditional bookings from the operator, which can take days to arrive.
Cruisers including the RMS Empress and Royal Caribbean Cruises have been looking at the option of mobile bookings for months.
However, there have been concerns over whether they would work when people have to wait longer than a day for a boat.
The new option could be part of a bigger shift for the industry.
Some major cruise lines have started to offer mobile booking.
Royal Caribbean said last year that they were exploring the option, and that it had been in talks with operators to launch the service.
The company is currently looking at locations in the United States and South Africa.
However they have not confirmed when the service will launch, and there are no plans to launch in Australia.
Cruise Line Australia said that it was not planning to launch a mobile booking service for its services, but that they would look at ways to help customers book through their phone, which would be a “nice addition”.
Cruises such as the Royal Caribbean, Alton, and Star Cruises already offer mobile booking, but they require you to book a boat in advance.
The companies said that their existing mobile booking plans were good enough for them to launch.
However it remains unclear whether the new mobile booking option will be offered on all of the operators boats, or just on the major ones.
What is mobile booking?
Mobile booking is a mobile app that lets you book a ship online.
Cruising lines can book ships through the app, which has been available for about a year.
They have also been offering a range of other booking methods, including bookings via a smartphone app and online booking.
However the app itself has not yet been rolled out for the big cruise lines.
For example, Star Cruise has not rolled out mobile booking on its Virgin America ships.
Alton Cruises did not have mobile booking available for the first time in late 2015.
In a statement, the company said that the company was in talks to roll out mobile bookers.
The carrier said that they had been exploring the possibility of mobile booking for some time.
Al and Star cruises have all been working with the operator to find the best way to deliver the service to their passengers.
However as a result of the uncertainty surrounding mobile booking and the limited availability of vessels for mobile booker, they have stopped talking about mobile booking.
