About Us

The Cruise Counter is a brand name of Thompson Travel International based in County Armagh Northern Ireland.  We have been selling cruises and all other types of holidays for 25 years.  We are considered experts in cruising and have won the ‘Big Hands’ Award with Royal Caribbean Cruises for Service Excellence and Sales.  All of our team have had the benefit of experiencing life on board most ships in the fleet of major cruise lines.  We sell the cruise to suit you, the destination you wish to visit or the ship you favour the most – all whilst we reward you for your loyalty to us.

We are delighted to offer a reward scheme to all our customers. 

As well as benefiting from the normal rewards schemes of individual cruise companies, you will avail of the many benefits through us, regardless if you cruise with a variety of companies over a period of time.

Maybe you fancy a cruise to Alaska with Celebrity Cruises for 7 nights, a River cruise with Arosa to the Christmas markets for 5 nights or a winter break to the UAE with MSC Cruises for 7 nights, all 19 cruise nights will be added to your rewards passport for ongoing offers and prizes – and you will never lose out on the cruise benefits offered by the cruise companies.

Holding a full ATOL license gives us the ability to tailor make your cruise & stay, source the best flight deals for you or add-on a stopover with the piece of mind.

Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme. But ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. Please see our booking conditions for information or for more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate.
