Work with Life Well Cruised

Brand Partnerships:

Life Well Cruised collaborates with cruise lines, travel brands, tourism boards, hotels, shore excursion tour companies and consumer brands. We can showcase new programs and products, illustrating benefits in a personal and realistic way.

One of the most effective ways we can work together is through a Sponsored Post. These include helpful information featuring your brand. Different from other forms of advertising, a blog post offers both a personal and trusted voice as well as longevity of your brand’s message. Blog posts are promoted on social media and are optimized for SEO.

Other ways we can partner include Facebook and Instagram posts, sponsored trips, product reviews, YouTube videos,  brand ambassador and campaigns.

All travel stories featured on Life Well Cruised are meant to showcase a positive, but genuine, cruise travel lifestyle.

Please note that reviews are always honest, and we only work with brands that align with and resonate with our audience. If you believe we might be a good fit, please email [email protected] to discuss opportunities.
