Nomad Cruise Program

We believe that sharing knowledge, skills and experience is the foundation of an open-spirited community on board. To create an environment of cooperative learning and developing, we organize talks, workshops, and meet-ups. No limits, but new horizons every day.

A day on Nomad Cruise

We start the day with a hearty breakfast, before the first curated talk. After lunch, there is time for hands-on workshops and larger meet-ups every day (check out the preliminary program). The afternoon hours can be used for smaller meet-ups, work-out sessions and more socializing by the pool. After watching the sunset on the top deck, we will migrate to the hold of the ship to have dinner together, go for a drink to the bars and later hit the dance floor. Sleep. Repeat.


Whatever your talent is – we want it! Everybody’s good at something. With Nomad Cruise the time to shine is now!

Our cruisers have organized acrobatics meet ups, choir rehearsals, jam sessions, tango classes and other fantastic events. This is what makes Nomad Cruise special and it’s also what we can’t wait to see more of!



Listen to the thought-provoking talks in the mornings. Let our community speakers inspire you to reflect and reconsider – or take the chance to contribute yourself and become a speaker to share your story, your wisdom and your experience with the community.


Extend your knowledge in our afternoon workshops, where members of the community get you engaged in the topic of their expertise. Embrace these new insights – or broaden the horizons of others in a workshop session that you design.


Meet the people you want to meet. We provide you with the opportunity to exchange your thoughts and discuss your ideas in small groups of people, enlighten them or ask for their experience. Every pot has a lid, and at Nomad Cruise every interest has its group.


No problem cannot be solved. Nomad Cruise will allow you to gather a group around you that will provide you with valuable ideas and impulses to resolve your issues strategically. Open up once, and you will be rewarded many times!


Work hard – play hard. The conference days are full of food for thought. We find balance by exploring two of the three Islands we will stop at together. From volcanic hills to sandy white beaches, the Caribbean will spoil us with its finest features.


We believe that being stuck on a ship with over 150 Nomads provides exceptional networking opportunities – be it at the pool bar, over a dinner or coffee. We’ve seen nomads starting new businesses, collaborating and teaming up to work and travel.

The Route

We’re headed back to good old Europe in May. Our next trip will take us from the port of Cartagena, Colombia to Lisbon, Portugal.

Cartagena is one of the oldest Spanish colonies in South America and combines both beautiful beaches and the perks of a vibrant city. On our way, we will then stop on the two tropical islands of St. Martin and Antigua. St. Martin attracts tourists for its typically tropical landscape and famous Maho Beach, where you can feel the power of aircraft land only meters from the shore. In Antigua, we will have the opportunity to take over white sandy beaches and enjoy the Caribbean vibes at its finest.

From there, our ship will take us across the Atlantic Ocean to the island of Madeira, the “Island of Spring,” which will enchant us with its unique landscape, pleasant climate, and maritime architecture. Our final destination is the Portuguese capital of Lisbon – a city so rich in flavors, culture, history, and beauty that we can’t wait to go back after it welcomed us so heartily last year.


Day 1: Cartagena (Colombia)
Day 2 – 3: at sea
Day 4: Philipsburg (St. Maarten)
Day 5: St. John’s (Antigua)
Day 6-12: at sea

The Cruise Ship

We’ll be back on the Pullmantur MONARCH, one of the largest ships in the Pullmantur fleet. We’re familiar with this ship as it has taken us back to Europe before. We can’t wait to welcome you aboard of our home for two weeks again.

The Community

We love people. The ever growing Nomad Cruise community is probably what we are the proudest of. Over the course of the first cruises, we have realized that the moment of arrival in our final port is never really the end. It’s the beginning of something new:

Your new friends will travel with you. They might even become friends for life. After our first cruise to Brazil we met up in small beach towns in Brazil, celebrated New Years in Rio de Janeiro, and many of us are still working and traveling the world together. After the second cruise, most of us stayed in Lisbon a little longer before going to Porto, the Algarve or Barcelona in smaller groups. After the third cruise over 100 Nomads headed to Cabarete to celebrate Christmas together.

Become part of this community. We doubt that you’ll ever regret it.

Common Questions

Here are the answers to a few questions we often receive before the booking process. Find more in our FAQs and if there is still anything else you’d like to know feel free to reach out to!

What happens after I applied?

After your application landed in our inbox, we review it and check whether or not we believe that you are a good asset to our community. If yes, you will receive an invitation soon after.

Nomad Cruise is about sharing and connecting. For us, it’s important to create an environment of learning and developing (be it your business, your skill set or your personality). So the broader the spectrum of skills and talents on board is, the more everyone will benefit.
The application process allows us to put together a heterogeneous group on age, gender, nationality, experience, skills, and interests, yet homogenous on open-mindedness and choice of the nomadic/remote working lifestyle.

How do I respond to the invite?

In your invitation, you will find a link that takes you to the booking site. Click it and fill out the form, press book and that’s about it.
You will soon after receive your invoice, and you’re all set! If anything goes wrong, don’t worry! Our excellent customer support department will get back to you soon, and you can always reach out to them under

Do I have to pay right away?

Yes and no. We do ask you to put down a deposit, which tells us that you really mean it. After all, we want to see some commitment! The deposit is 150€ and it’s non-refundable.

When is the full amount due?

60 days prior to departure you will have to pay the full amount. The earlier you pay, the better. We do remind you though that time is running once we get to that point!

How do I get to Colombia (for cheap)?

Well, this depends on where you’re flying in from. There are great connections between Bogota and Miami and occasionally New York. We recommend for a good overview over flight tickets. From the US you can flights from 100€, from Europe flying via Miami is usually the cheapest and will cost your around 400€

FIY: Viva Colombia is super cheap, but also as basic as it can be. We survived it in one piece, though, and especially for short flights (like Bogotá to Cartagena) it’s a decent option.

Once you arrive at Cartagena Airport you can either uber it to the city or take a taxi from the counter outside the airport. It’s not expensive and pretty convenient.
