Replacing text in txt files

I am replacing square brackets by round brackets with help of a python script - works perfectly. 

But I also want to replace a single word by another word (Cruise -> Campaign): nothing happens. 

 

Here is the part of the script: 

 

r = csv.reader(t, delimiter="\t")
all=[]

header=r.next()
#arcpy.AddMessage(header)
for fields in header:
fields.replace("Cruise","Campaign")##not working
fields.replace("[", "(")
fields.replace("]", ")")

 

Any idea why it replaces the brackets fine but not the word?
