50 Top cruise YouTube channels

About this Top 50 list:

This list of top 50 cruise YouTube channels is in no particular order. Each channel is different and each cruise content creator brings something special to the table.

Some content creators are relatively new, and have created a lot of amazing content during the pause in cruising. Other channels have ship tours and destination information that was made before the shutdown, equally valuable as you may be planning a future cruise.

This list will be reviewed and updated about once a year, so if you think that another channel deserves to be on this list, make sure to shout it out in the comments section below!

On the most part, these cruise YouTube channels are run by individuals, and not big brands. If you enjoy the content they create, please let them now by liking their videos and subscribing to their channels.
