These 2 are funny!


La Lido Loca

This one is growing fast!

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 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.

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

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.

Yes, it certainly has changed since Elizabeth is not part of it anymore but I still watch and am a fan.

I just started checking out Sean and Stef IRL too but haven’t watchec enough yet to put it on my favs yet.
