Work with Life Well Cruised

Brand Partnerships:

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

We can also collaborate by featuring your product or service in a YouTube video. Sponsored videos and integrations can be tailored to fit your needs.

In addition to the blog and YouTube channel, other ways we can partner include Facebook and Instagram posts, sponsored press trips and brand campaigns. Please note that reviews are always honest, and we only work with brands that align with and resonate with our audience. 

Due to the time and work involved, only paid collaborations will be considered. 

Please email Ilana at to discuss your project.
