What is Cruise Critic?

Cruise Critic is the leading cruise search platform. Both ocean and sea river cruises are available on the site. In 2007, the platform was acquired by TripAdvisor and is currently part of the world’s largest travel community.

Benefits of the Cruise Critic affiliate program

As part of the Cruise Critic affiliate program, you can earn on clicks to external sites. Every time your audience on the Cruise Critic website clicks on the partner links and goes to the advertiser’s external site, you will receive a click-through reward. Pay per click is not very common in travel affiliate programs, but the Cruise Critic affiliate program is an example of a program on which you can earn money on travel traffic using the CPC model. With that said, commissions based on clicks assume high-quality traffic from your side, so the advertiser evaluates all partners and allows only a limited list of traffic sources.
