Learn and grow your business & network on the Pacific Ocean

Nomad Cruise is a unique opportunity to cross the Pacific Ocean and explore Japan while connecting with a diverse community of remote workers from around the world. We've created an environment on the cruise that fosters learning and growth: throughout the trip, you'll have the chance to expand your thinking, learn new skills, and gain valuable knowledge from experts in various fields.

Attend keynotes and hands-on workshops, visit stunning destinations, connect with others and engage in mastermind sessions, and finally, network during our specially curated nightly events. At Nomad Cruise, each day is unique, and this is how we like it!

Embark on a fantastic journey as we cruise from Vancouver, Canada, spanning the vast ocean in 13 days. Along the way, we'll discover the charm of Sitka, a unique Alaskan town, and explore Kodiak Island, a truly extraordinary destination, home to the iconic Kodiak bear. Before we reach the vibrant Tokyo, our final destination, we'll make a delightful stop in Kushiro. Famous for its expansive Kushiro Marsh, this serene spot is inhabited by deer, sea eagles, and Japanese cranes. Get ready for an adventure filled with incredible scenery and memorable moments!

And finally, we'll make our grand entrance in Tokyo, a city pulsating with the beating heart of modernity and tradition.

From Salsa dancing at the disco to creating new business ventures and playing guitar to the sound of the waves, Nomad Cruise was a great experience that we hope to enjoy again very soon.

Your questions answered

Who is the Nomad Cruise for?

We are looking for creative, productive and passionate people at different stages of their digital nomadism/remote working. Nomad Cruise is for beginners as well as for pros because we believe that we all have different talents and we can all learn from each other.

We always have a heterogeneous group concerning age, gender, nationality, experience, skills and interests, yet homogenous concerning open-mindedness and choice of the nomadic/remote working lifestyle.

While many participants typically range from 25 to 50, we warmly welcome nomads of all ages, whether younger or older!

If you haven’t booked yet and want to join us on our next cruise, please do so soon. Keep in mind that chances to get better deals are higher if you book early. Early bookings will also get the best cabins.

Can I come alone?

Sure you can! We make it super easy for you to connect with the other participants, so we promise you won’t be alone for too long. Most of the participants who join us for the first time come alone and leave with hundreds of new friends.

Can I share my cabin with other participants?

We do offer shared cabins with another Nomad Cruise participant. Each cabin can have a setup with two separate beds. By providing shared cabins, we can get more people on board, you can save some bucks on your ticket, plus you’ll have a friend from the very first day. You can either make a suggestion of who you would like to share your cabin with or we will choose another lovely participant of the same sex for you.

Can I bring my partner/family along?

You are welcome to bring your partner along and share your cabin with them. You can choose a cabin with either a large double bed or two separate beds.

Both of you will need to book a shared cabin separately and mention each other’s full name in the check-out form when we ask if you have anyone to share your cabin with.

Family bookings:
You can share a cabin with up to 4 people.  Infants must be at least twelve (12) months old on the date of embarkation for Transocean crossings.
Simply send an email to if you would like to book for your family.

Is the ticket for the cruise tax deductible?

Yes! Many participants have used it to reduce their taxes. How much you can deduct in the end depends on your country and tax advisor.

Are there any restrictions?

There are a few restrictions in the cruise line’s policy which we have to abide by:

  • Women cannot have begun their 24th week of pregnancy at any time before or during the cruise. If you are pregnant or sailing with a guest who is pregnant they must provide a physician’s letter stating the expected due date, medical fitness to travel and the pregnancy is not high risk.
  • Due to international restrictions imposed by cruise companies, citizens of Russia, Belarus, North Korea, Yemen and Cuba are only allowed on board if they have a residency certificate in a country not listed above.
  • For solo travellers the minimum age to join is 21 years.

What happens after booking?

Once you’ve booked, you will receive access to our Cruise Wiki, offering even more information to help you plan your cruise in advance.

About 45 days prior to departure you will also be invited to our Telegram Group, so you can connect with other participants and plan your trip together.

What shall I do if the cabin i want to book is not available?

We have limited cabins for this trip, and while we can’t promise anything, we are working on making more cabins available.

If your preferred cabin category is not available, you are welcome to sign up to our waitlist and we’ll let you know in case we have a spot for you.

If you’re flexible with the cabin category and want to make sure you don’t miss out on the adventure, we recommend booking the closest category to your preferred choice, and if we can, we will update your booking to your favorite cabin type. In this case, we also invite you to fill out our the waitlist to let us know what type of cabin you’re after.

Is there wifi on board?

Our ship will be equipped with the Starlink broadband internet connection system, which is a faster and more reliable internet experience compared to our previous trips. Holland-America’s Premium Wifi package is included in your ticket price.

What drinks can I enjoy with the included Drink Package?

Your Nomad Cruise ticket comes with the Signature Drink Package included.

Holland America’s Signature Package is an alcoholic package for guests ages 21+. (Minibar in the cabin is not included).

You can choose from a selection of beers, spirits, cocktails, and wines by the glass up to $11 per serving. Plus, you can choose from all non-alcoholic options available with the Quench Package (Coca Cola products, premium coffee such as espresso and cappuccino, juices, mocktails and bottled water).

There is a daily 15 drink limit for both alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages.

When should I arrive to the departure city?

If you have the time, we highly encourage you to arrive one week earlier, as we will organize different programs to discover Vancouver and connect with other participants before the cruise begins.

Can you share tips for booking my flights?

Arriving in Vancouver: Vancouver has an international airport, located on Sea Island in Richmond, British Columbia, serving the city of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland region. It is located 12 km from Downtown Vancouver.

We recommend arriving at least one or two days ahead and booking a hotel in Vancouver for one night. We will have some advice on places to stay in our trip wiki.

Departure from Tokyo: The ship arrives in Tokyo on October 13th at 7 am, and it might take a few hours until you are able to disembark, therefore we advice against booking an early flight. Getting to the Tokyo Haneda (HND) Airport will take around 15 minutes by taxi.

What happens after arrival?

The disembarkation can take a while, so we suggest not to book any early flights.

We encourage you to stick around in the area for at least 2 weeks after the cruise. This gives you an excellent opportunity to build deeper connections and brainstorm potential business collaborations with those you met on board. If you have more time available you don’t won’t want to miss the reunions we will organize after the cruise – they are always a ton of fun and a great way to explore yet another beautiful destination – or two!

How can I contribute to the program?

Speaking on stage at Nomad Cruise is one of the best ways to show your expertise to other members of our great online-entrepreneur community.
As a skill-sharing conference, we do not offer any compensation for the talks/workshops – we are looking for voluntary contributions.

You can find all the information about giving a talk or workshop on board and apply here.

If you are not chosen as a keynote speaker or workshop facilitator, we still encourage you to be an active part of the program. Organize your own meetup on your specific topic or participate in the various special events we host (e.g. talent show, mastermind).

Do you have a refund policy?

If for some reason you can’t make it on the cruise, you can cancel your ticket by simply sending an email to

The following conditions apply to cancellations and booking changes for the trip:

> 60 Days: Deposit is held as cancellation

60 – 30 Days: 33% of the tour price is held as cancellation

18 – 0 Days: 100% of the tour price is held as cancellation

Tickets are not for resale.

How do you address the environmental impact of your trips?

For each cruise we calculate the carbon emmission that is released during the trip and offset it with the official offsetting platform of the UN Nations. You can read more about how we stay carbon-neutral here.
