Cruise With Ben & David FAQs (April 2023)

Crew Members

Ben Hewitt (age 34)

David McDonald (age 34)

They’re both lovable guys from the UK with an awesome little nephew called Oscar.


They reside in the UK when they aren’t cruising the world’s oceans in style.

Past Cruising

They have done more than 50 cruises now! It’s fair to say that they’re well-traveled and experienced on board.

In fact, they’re hardly ever home these days!

Affording It

So how to do they fund their travels? It’s easy. They built a profitable business around their passion which is cruising.

Net Worth

They’re richer today as business owners than they ever were as employees.

As of 2023, Cruise With Ben & David have a net worth of $750,000 USD.

This is based on the value of their car and online business.

Yes, they’re doing well for themselves, but they aren’t millionaires. In fact, their audience often has 2-3x more wealth.

Making Loot

They are definitely monetizing their channel well.

In 2023, Cruise With Ben & David are making around $16,000 per month with their channel. That’s quite remarkable! ‘Cause they get paid to keep cruising.

Essentially, the more they go cruising…the more money they make! What a lifestyle.

They make money through:

➜ Ads on their YouTube videos

➜ Subscribers to Patreon

➜ Channel sponsorships such as Squarespace

➜ Amazon affiliate links

➜ Commissions earned through cruise ship bookings

They haven’t left much money on the table.


I’ve haven’t really seen them other cruising influencers but would love to see a collab between them and Emma Cruises.

Big Moments

They’ve had some epic cruises and some that left them a little disappointed.

Still, their infectious positivity has helped them get through those tough times!

Future Plans

Neither David nor Ben aspire to stop cruising anytime soon. They’re just having way too much fun!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn?

➜ You don’t need to be a millionaire to go cruising

➜ Open your mind to the opportunities that are online

➜ Allow your true personality to shine

And surround yourself with the right people.


There are no cruisers as lovely as Cruise With Ben & David. They bring so much positivity and love to the world and I hope they continue to create for years to come!
