You’ll meet like-minded people, broaden your horizons, learn from inspiring talks and workshops, engage in thought-provoking discussions and get involved in masterminds on every topic. Added to that we’ll be stopping at some exciting new destinations.
THE ROUTE OF NC8
Imagine traveling between two digital nomad hotspots on an ocean Cruiseliner with 200+ of your newest friends!
We will cruise the Canary Islands and begin our journey in Gran Canaria, a digital nomad haven, where we will host pre-cruise events so you can get to know your cruise crew a little better before we depart. From there we will set sail to Tenerife and Lanzarote. On day five, we dip our toes into Africa as we visit the world famous city of Casablanca in Morroco. Just before we disembark in Lisbon, we make one last stop in Càdiz, an ancient port city in the Andalusian region.
Nomad Cruise 8 will be shorter then previous cruises and will have more days on land. This doesn’t mean less fun at all, imagine exploring new destinations in the morning and attending our curated program in the afternoon. You need to get some work done? Grab your laptop and work from a new destination almost every day.
As always, our itinerary will be packed with an incredible conference program with excellent Keynotes, Workshops and Special Events, like Night of Failure and Talent Show. We create the perfect blend and balance between a great program and activities.

Network. Share. Learn.
We believe that sharing knowledge, skills and experiences is the foundation of an open-spirited community and it couldn’t be more true of the ethos on board. To create an environment of cooperative learning and personal and professional development, we organize talks, workshops, and meet-ups with the help of our fellow Nomad Cruise participants. No limits, just opportunities for exponential growth every day. Keen to see what we’re talking about? Check out the Nomad Cruise programs of trip V and VI.
As Nomad Cruise 8 will visit more destinations than previous cruises in a shorter time, the main conference program will take place in the afternoon. You will be able to get some work done or explore new destinations in the mornings, almost every day.
KEYNOTES & TALKS
Listen to keynotes and talks from other nomads. Let our community speakers entertain and engage you with the stories and experiences that have led to their greatest achievements and deepest learnings. You will feel inspired. You could also join our speaker community and share your perspective on the thing that gets you up 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. Whether it’s on the pool deck or around the dinner table, get a small group together to discuss ideas, thoughts and opportunities. Every pot has its lid, and at Nomad Cruise, every interest has its group.
Have a wicked problem that needs solving? Let your Nomad Cruise community help you out. You won’t have many opportunities like this, with people like these at your disposal to help you crack the ‘code’ you’ve been struggling with. Open up once, and you will be rewarded many times!
Work hard – play hard. Our conference days are packed full of inspiration and insight. On land days, team up with new nomad friends to try the cuisine, discover the picturesque landscapes and immerse yourself in the local culture at each of our stops.
Finding yourself stuck on a cruiseliner with 300+ nomads is just as awesome as it sounds. You’ll have ample networking opportunities – be it at the pool bar or over coffee, we’ve seen nomads collaborating on projects, starting businesses and teaming up to work and travel together.
