Milestone Celebration: 5,000 YouTube Subscribers!

What an unbelievable 3 months it has been! Here are just a few of the highlights:

In addition to those amazing experiences, we’ve also DOUBLED our YouTube following in that same period of time. On December 17, I wrote how we exceeded our 2023 goal hitting 2,500 subscribers. Now, just over three months later, you’ve helped us double that number!

Original 2024 YouTube Goals

As we began planning for 2024, we targeted 5,000 subscribers for the entire year. But then, based on the number of new ships and experiences we booked for 2024, we decided to increase our goal at the start of the year by 20% to 6,000 subscribers.

At the time, that number seemed daunting – but our followers helped us crush that original 5,000 goal in just the first 3 months of the year! Mind blown and humbled.

Updated 2024 YouTube Goals

Based on the tremendous support the cruise community has demonstrated toward Rocky and me, we’ve decided to update our 2024 YouTube Goal again. We’re taking that 6,000 number and increasing it another 25% to 7,500 YouTube Subscribers by the end of 2024.

That’s equivalent to an average of 9 subscribers a day. Every single day. Every single day for the rest of the year. Is it possible? Well, we’re setting an ambitious goal to find out – and we’re having fun along the way as we shoot for the moon!
