Our Favourite YouTube Channel’s

Hey everyone, sorry we haven’t posted in a while but life has been hectic! We have had the chance to take a couple of weeks time off and travel around Ireland so plenty of content will be published soon!

We have been watching a lot of YouTube over the past few months and our favourite channels have revolved around something we haven’t been able to do – Travel. There are a ton of great Youtubers, but we decided to limit ourselves to 5 for this post as follows:

Gary Bembridge – Tips for Travellers

Gary runs the channel Tips for Travellers, his videos generally focus on cruises – we have only been on one cruise, and our two following have been cancelled. However we love watching him to get a bit of cruise hype – he has kept us up to date with all that’s going on in the cruise industry during Covid-19 and its become a tradition in our house to shout that Gary has a new video.

We highly recommend watching his videos if you are interested in cruising – he has tips around cruise lines, destinations and how to save money. Gary can be found on instagram @GaryBembridge

Ben and David

Cruise With Ben and David is another cruise channel that we love – we originally discovered them through their Scarlet Lady video – we really enjoy their style of video and they are entertaining to watch. Again, through Covid they have provided regular updates. We really enjoy their informative videos on different cruise lines they can be found on Instagram @cruisewith

Emma

Emma Cruises is another of the YouTube channels we follow for cruise news and updates, we discovered her after watching Ben and David’s video on the new Virgin Voyages ship – the Scarlet Lady. To be honest we have only watched a few of her videos, but we have found them very informative and entertaining. If you follow her on Instagram @EmmaCruises she occasionally has live streams!

Paul and Carole

Paul and Carole Love to Travel is another channel we love to watch – we initially discovered them through their Instagram @paulandcarole We find them really fun to watch and read, Brianna discovered recently they even have now have a TikTok account! They have videos reviewing, hotels, cruises and lately we have watched their touring caravan series.

Travel Blog Jamie

We also came across Jamie initially through Instagram @TravelBlogJamie, his YouTube channel is Travel Blog Jamie. We enjoy watching it as Jamie reviews a range of different accommodations and types of trips and he also has videos around lifestyle! He is really positive and supportive of his followers and we recommend engaging with his accounts if you get the chance!

These are our favourite five to watch at the moment!

Until next time stay safe and keep planning the next adventure!

Cruises We’d Love to Try – Part 2 – Itineraries

We’ve talked about our first cruise experience, and we’ve talked about cruise lines we’d love to go on. Now it’s time for us to talk about cruise itineraries that appeal to us – although if we’re being honest they all appeal to us, there just happens to be a few that stand out for us.

First up, the Norwegian Fjords. Because Norway is apparently rather expensive to holiday in, we feel like this would be the best way for us to see this beautiful part of the world. We did have a cruise on the Celebrity Silhouette booked for August 2021 to the Fjords, but we’re now planning on cancelling that one, as we have a close friend getting married during that time. But we’ll definitely be planning another cruise up around that area at some point.

Another cruise we’d love to go on is one around the French Polynesian islands. This area has been on our bucket list for the longest time, and we think a cruise would be the best way to get a taste of it without paying high prices for flights and accommodation.

We also love the possibility of doing a Caribbean cruise, especially ones that would allow us to visit Aruba and Cuba. We’ve talked about the idea of going on a Caribbean cruise at Christmas time some year. We imagine it would be a cool experience to spend Christmas day on board a ship in the middle of the Caribbean!

Alaska is another area we’ve always talked about going to. Like a trip to the Norwegian Fjords, we think a cruise here would provide us with breathtakingly beautiful scenery. We both have family on the west coast of America, so we’d love to incorporate a trip to Alaska if we go visit them at some point.

Two of our closest friends spent their honeymoon on a cruise around Japan, and after hearing about the experience and seeing their photos we knew had to add it to our bucket list of cruises. Aside from Norway, this is probably the cruise we’d be most keen to try out next.

Finally, a transatlantic or a transpacific cruise – either one appeals to us. We found that when we cruised last year we loved the sea days. They were the perfect opportunity to just relax and enjoy the ship, plus there was something exciting about going up to the top deck and seeing no land in sight. Also, if we did a transpacific one we’d get the chance to cross the International Date Line!

Who know where our next cruise adventure will be. But we think it’s safe to say that wherever we sail to next it’ll be an exciting trip.

Until then, stay safe and keep planning the next adventure!
