THE GALAPAGOS CRUISE API

Supplier (Cruise Line) API Documentation

Sending your Availability and Rate Data to GalapagosGDS

This document describes the process of using the GalapagosGDS Supplier API to send Availability and Rate data from your internal availability and rate system to the GalapagosGDS server. 

VoyagePort provides a REST API to send updates to GalapagosGDS about availability and rates automatically. 

Step 1) You will initially need to post the availability data of all of your departures of all of your cabins of all of your vessels and the corresponding price data to the GalapagosGDS server. 

Step 2) After Galapagos GDS has received all of your availability and price data, you will need to create a trigger that sends every change in availability and price in your reservation system to update your changes in the GalapgosGDS server in real-time or as close to real-time as possible.
