Next is the big question...Why book your cruise with Thompson Travel International?
1. Award Winners
2. Reward Scheme
4. Knowledge & Tailor Made Holidays
Have you ever wondered why people who cruise come back and book their next cruise so quickly? They even book on-board and send the booking back to us!
But…..how do we convince you to take the first step?
1. VALUE FOR MONEY
There are so many exciting deals out there that give you excellent value for money. The standard of food on board ships is amazing with an array of restaurants on offer to suit all tastes. Inclusive Meals, inclusive activities and even inclusive drinks are offered on lots of ships
2. YOU ONLY UNPACK ONCE
Cruising gives you the opportunity to see many destinations without packing and unpacking, catching trains or getting up at 6am to join a coach. You normally get full days in port and a chance to get a snapshot of places you’ve only dreamed of – and maybe you just might return again
3. FAMILY FRIENDLY
There is no doubt that major cruise companies have taken the whole family into account on most ships. From sports activities for the kids, to a relaxing sun lounger for the adults, some wine tasting, a top show, specialist dining times – a cruise has it all.
There is something romantic about a cruise. Maybe its sailing under the stars, watching a movie on the top deck or sipping a cocktail in the beautiful lounges on-board while enjoying all sorts of music. Specialist restaurants allow you to enjoy a relaxing and romantic meal as you sail.
Do you usually travel alone? There is nothing lonely about being on a cruise. You will find plenty to do or plenty of places to chill out. Some ships have special areas for single guests to meet new friends and soak up the atmosphere.
It is also the perfect destination for groups of friends.
6. TOP CLASS SERVICE
Many cruise companies now have smaller, more intimate ships. The staff serve meals to your stateroom course by course – and many with no charge for the service. Suite guests can also enjoy speciality restaurants, exclusive areas of the ship for sunbathing, socialising and avoiding the kids if needs be!
Now once you have decided a cruise is what you want for your next adventure the question is why book with us?
1. AWARD WINNERS
In previous years we have won a number of awards from huge cruise companies such as Royal Caribbean and Celebrity. However our most recent and achievement to be proud of was winning the prestigious Ulster Tatler Award in 2019 for Northern Irelands Best Independent Travel Agent.
2. REWARD SCHEME
A brand new innovation to the industry our new concept rewards our customers for every night they cruise regardless of ocean or river or any cruise line. These rewards continuously build to the end goal - a FREE CRUISE EXPERIENCE.
We have been selling cruises in Northern Ireland, Ireland and the rest of the UK for over 20 years! Sometimes even we can't believe that but that means we have a wealth of experience. Those years paired with the fact all of our staff love to cruise and have been on so many different ships on their own holidays mean we know lots of information and secret tips.
4. KNOWLEDGE, TAILOR MADE HOLIDAYS & ATOL PROTECTION
As you just read all of our staff have cruised and have more booked. Between the staff in our office we have pretty much cruised the world and have such a vast array of knowledge around cruising. Whether it be what cruise line will suit you, cabin types, excursions recommendations, what drinks package you take or what the best restaurant is onboard, we can help with it all.
Another huge advantage for us is our ATOL licence. That means we can tailor make your dream holiday and protect it as a package. That is exactly what you need if you fancy a Caribbean cruise but with a few nights in Miami first. Not only does that allows us to give you exactly what you want but a lot of the time it makes our prices better. We don't need to pay someone to build a package up for us so we cut out the 'middle-man'. That means one thing for you, better value for for money, for your next big adventure!
