Cross The Atlantic Ocean On A 12 Day Journey From St. Maarten To Portugal

This is Nomad Cruise 11’s epic route:

Departing from St. Maarten on April 21st, we encourage everyone to arrive a few days early to explore the diversity of this Caribbean island: it is both urban and untamed, with rain forest-like landscapes, white beaches, and amazing caves and wildlife. Before making our passage across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe, we will stop in Antigua, another pearl of the Caribbean, ringed with coral reefs and home to many sandy beaches. Just before we disembark in digital nomad hotspot Lisbon, we make one last stop in Ponta Delgada in the Azores Archipelago.

 On land as well as on board: We’ll have the best time ever! Because there will be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in the program. Get ready for amazing Keynote Speakers, 30-Second Pitches, Nomad Cruise Talent Show, Deep Connection Workshop and many, many more.

Network. Share. Learn.

We believe that sharing knowledge, skills and experience is the foundation of an open-spirited community and it couldn’t be more true of the ethos on board.

We also believe that on Nomad Cruise every participant should get the chance to be an active part of the program and get feedback to their business and lifestyle related questions. That’s why we designed a unique environment of cooperative learning and personal and professional development.

Experts are on stage to share their knowledge through talks and workshops, while the specials are there to make you an integral part of the program by shared experience. Showcase your special skills at the Nomad Cruise Talent Show, get your hips moving during the Salsa Classes, or pitch your idea at the Business Breakthrough Session to get valuable feedback from experienced mentors.

Listen to talks from other nomads in the morning.

Take a deep dive in our workshops. This is your opportunity to really investigate the topics that interest you. Guided by our community speakers, you can look forward to a more focused session that really lets you get to grips with the topic at hand. Or if there is something you’d like to teach the community, why not host a workshop yourself?


Nomad Cruise works because it’s community lead and nothing represents the spirit of cruise community better than hosting your own meet-up.

Most frequently asked questions

How do I get on board?

NC is an invite only event. To get on board, apply here and we’ll send you further instructions on how to get on board.

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.

The application process allows us to put together a heterogeneous group concerning age, gender, nationality, experience, skills and interests, yet homogeneous concerning open-mindedness and choice of the nomadic/remote working lifestyle.

Where can I join the cruise?

You can join our next Transatlantic trip in two ports: boarding will be possible in both Cartagena (Colombia) and St.Maarten, depending on availability. Please note, that the official program will only start in St.Maarten.
The departure dates are the following:
  • Cartagena: 18 April
  • St.Maarten: 21 April
You can easily select your preferred port from a drop down menu during booking. The additional cost for embarking in Cartagena will be displayed in our shopping cart.
Should you decide to change the city of departure after you already booked your spot, you can do so without any additional admin fee for one week – afterwards we’ll have to charge a €50 extra fee.

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 bring my partner/family along?

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

You can share a cabin with up to 4 people. Children under the age of 2 can join for free, and children between 2-18 years can join for a discounted price. Simply send an email to if you would like to book for your family.

Remember that in case of Transatlantic cruises the minimum age to join the cruise is 12 months on the scheduled day of embarkation.Women who are pregnant beyond week 22 cannot join the cruise.

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.

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. 

Once you booked your spot on the cruise, you can apply for a speaking gig. All keynotes and workshops are related to remote work, business, productivity, health, digital nomad lifestyle, personal development and travel. We are constantly measuring the needs of each of our cruises so that we have our program tailored to the tribe of people attending. We review applications with this in mind.

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, piranha tank). 

Is there Wifi on board?

Yes, there is Wifi on board for additional cost. We faced a different situation on each trip, so it’s hard to make a general statement about the speed. Usually it’s enough to check e-mails and load regular websites. We recommend being prepared. Don’t expect anything – appreciate everything is pretty much the ideal strategy here.

While this sounds like a total downer, we were surprised to learn that a large number of participants used our cruises for a digital detox. They only ever logged in during island stops and other than that kept their devices off. They reported a positive change in their behavior, increased their level of relaxation, and many said that it felt like the first true vacation in years.

The Wifi package on board comes with additional cost.

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

This is set to be an incredible time you will never forget!

Explore Lisbon

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and a modern metropolis with bars, view points and a legendary food scene. In addition, it is a bustling Nomad hotspot with Coworking Spaces, meet-ups and a diverse nightlife. If you have never been to Lisbon, it’s time to check it out!

Ericeira, Sagres, Peniche; If riding the waves is your happy place and you can hear your name being called by the winds of the Atlantic, spending time at one of Portugal’s charming surf villages will be where it’s at for you. Spend lazy days in the sun, taking in the beauty of the Portuguese coastline.

What could be more fun than hitting the road with your new found friends and visiting every coastal town from Porto to Sagres in a camper van? Ride in comfort while ticking off bucket list item after bucket list item: Sleep on the beach, tell stories around a bonfire, take the road less travelled. It’ll be worth it.
