What are your favorite Cruise Vlogs ?

Recommended Posts

A few more channels I have added to my regularly watched stuff:

 

 

Adventures Ahead

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeWlmTjTyHhLS8SlcxonYjA

 

 

These 2 are funny!

 

 

La Lido Loca

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqFivW2VWJtGfvrMreyjNbw

 

 

This one is growing fast!

 

 

Thecruisegeeks

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAb0dQJwxfLY59zmVORlOLQ

 

 

They have a great audio podcast too

 

I find La Lido Loca very charming. They are new cruisers so the fact that they have a Cruising community is interesting.

Step 1. Film yourself doing cruisy things on board random cruise

Step 2. Post "vlog" on YouTube & get subscribers

Step 3. Get discounted cruise fare becasue you are now an "influencer???"

 

Is that how the new gig economy works?

 

The majority of this content is terrible. This is the 2018 version of your uncle's 1980 slideshow of his trip to the Bahamas.

 

You know, everybody gather on the couch, lights go down, turn stereo on for "mood music" and then fire away for 8 trays of bad photos featuring Morty and the gang.

 

We used to do everything possible to avoid that day, and now we willingly subject ourselves to it on YouTube while putting coin in their pocket.

 

How do you spell "SUCKERS" again?

 

I hope these people are turning a profit, because why else would you post these vidoes? Does the whole world really need to know what you ate on the Carnival Whatsit for dinner?

 

Just know that everytime you hit "subscribe" on one of these things, you just discounted their next trip, not yours.

BTW...They are not travel agents. In Florida you have to be licensed. Just saying!

How do you know that they are not possibly licensed? It is true that Florida requires travel agents to be licensed. However, they use a host agency that carries the license in those states where it is required. They then basically work as an independent contractor to the host agency. How else do you think they book all those group cruises? All bookings are made through the name of the host agency.

Hi there. We've been cruising for a few years now. What I've noticed is there are not much youtubers that are into cruise travel film making, mainly are vlogs (that's where they can monetize really). So i decided to do a cruise travel film making and here's my ever attempt

 

 

Hope you'll enjoy :)

I am not sure what point you are trying to make with the link. The link actually contradicts your prior statement. From the link regarding Florida;

 

Notes on the Florida Seller of Travel

 

Okay, there’s a trend. But just because we like to geek out on this, here’s a few exemptions for FLA SOT if you’re with a host:

  • Act for or on behalf of a seller of travel that is operating in compliance with Sections 559.926-559.939, Florida Statutes, the Sellers of Travel Act; AND
  • Have a written contract with the seller(s) of travel listed above (please provide us a copy of the contract); AND
  • Do not receive a fee, commission or other valuable consideration directly from the purchasers of travel or travel related services; AND
  • Do not at any time have any un-issued ticket stock in my possession; AND
  • Do not have the ability to issue tickets, lodging or vacation certificates, or any other travel documents.

 

When working with a Host Agency, one would meet all of the above criteria to have an exemption for the license.

Yes, that is what this thread is about. (Vlogs)

 

While I consider your video to be a highly professional and commercial looking piece of work it is definitely not a vlog. :)

Through inside information I happen to know that the site is about to see huge improvement with the investment of new filming equipment and music starting with the upcoming Europe videos, which include the Breakaway Baltic cruise (Denmark, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Sweden, and ship tour)

Way too much music in some of the videos for my personal tastes but the other ones are cool. :)

What camera equipment have you invested in? We just bought a Canon EOS M50 to use, replacing a Sony FDR X3000 that we were using to vlog with. Of course, we have other cameras from GoPro to Canon 80D, but the GoPro isn't any different than the Sony and the Canon 80D is way to big for a vlog camera. Considered the G7X, but I don't like the lack of an external microphone input. The new M50 has that and the same sensor as the 80D. I haven't done any cruise vlogs yet, but have been posting vlogs of our other land based trips.

 

Also, have you looked in to Epidemic Sound? A great resource for music (sorry Carl) for content creators on YouTube.

Hey everyone,

 

Just thought I would add my two cents and a link to my channel.

First - I don't make any money off of my vlogs, there are no ads on them.

Second - I have never received a discounted fare on any cruise because of my vlogs.

 

I just love to cruise and love to share the experiences with others. I think that cruising is the absolute best way to travel and I am trying to help expose people to it.

 

My channel is http://www.youtube.com/SoTweetie

 

I have five more cruises coming up on my channel including Hawaii on the Norwegian Jewel, a couple of Caribbean trips (RCI Majesty of the Seas & Carnival Liberty), and the Panama Canal and Alaska on Coral Princess. I hope you'll check out my channel and consider subscribing. My next cruise is going to be on the Allure of the Seas in October. 👍

Carl, I think you have some bad channel links in there. When I click on some of them, Sharon at Sea for example, it doesn't work. I think they have changed their channel URLs to use a Custom URL and the old standard YouTube URLs don't work any longer.

Although I have been watching cruise videos for years I just started getting into cruise vlogs. Here are some my favorites thus far:

 

1. Seas Cruisers - The Donohos (Amy and Elizabeth)

 

These are the gold standard as far as I am concerned. I haven't seen anything better and they have a LOT of content. Here is a link to their playlists of cruises:

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5hyCFNJwGcZOs_76B2JbYw/playlists

 

2. SheaParker - Brooke and Garrett

 

 

This is the only couple I have ever seen that MADE MONEY on a shore trip :D Great stuff

 

3. iamthebosslady - Terri and Tony

 

My next cruise is on Carnival Dream so I really like that one. Terri and Tony are awesome too! :)

 

 

4. Adventures of Angela and Andy

 

Shows you details you miss in other videos

 

 

5. CruiseNYR

 

Only a couple of videos total but worth watching this young couple

 

 

6. sarahproductions113

 

Great production values being it is from a 17 year old Canadian teenager

 

 

 

I would love to hear about other cruise vloggers I can check out?

 

You got any to share? ;)

 

Thanks

 

 

YouTube favs:

EECC Travels, AuntiVeraCharles50, cruising with wheels, Cruisetipstv, ...I’m out of ideas also

Hey everyone! I know I won't be a favorite anytime soon but I did just announce my first two cruise vlogs that I will be going on coming up soon! I am super excited to finally get to vlog these cruises as I tried to last time I went on a cruise but it did not work out at all. Now thanks to all the inspiration from these channels, I think I finally can create a decent vlog! Cannot wait to share the vlogs with you all and see all the other vloggers trips as well :)
