The man in charge of organising the 2007 Cricket World Cup has admitted some fans could have nowhere to stay.
Dehring has warned travelling fans to book accommodation early
"We will never satisfy 100% of that demand - no world games can," said tournament director Chris Dehring.
"But we will certainly be satisfying a reasonable amount. I would advise everybody to book early."
Up to 100,000 fans are expected at the tournament, which involves 51 games featuring 16 teams in nine different countries within the West Indies.
Tournament organisers and national tourist boards have already moved to make up much of the shortfall in accommodation.
Home owners are being encouraged to join a bed and breakfast home stay programme, while cruise ships are being chartered in Jamaica and Barbados.
"The Caribbean is already a destination of choice," Dehring added.
"And when you add the Cricket World Cup you're obviously going to have an incredible amount of demand."
The World Cup begins on 13 March in Jamaica, with the final in Barbados on 28 April.
