My Month as a Digital Nomad on the Cunard Queen Elizabeth

Hello, fellow adventurers and digital nomads! I’m Brandon, and I recently embarked on a unique journey, spending a month aboard the Cunard Queen Elizabeth cruise ship. This experience was a blend of work, leisure, and exploration, starting from the sunny shores of Perth, Australia. Let me take you through the highlights of my life at sea.

Our Home on the Waves

Our cabin was more than just a room; it was our home for a month. Spacious and well-equipped, it catered to both my work needs and family life. The balcony was a game-changer, offering fresh air and stunning views – a necessity for someone with multiple chemical sensitivity like me.

Family-Friendly Adventures

One of the best parts of this journey was how family-friendly the ship was. My three-year-old had the time of his life with the ship’s childcare services. They offered a variety of activities that kept him engaged and happy. It was reassuring to know he was in good hands while I worked.

Dining Delights

The culinary experience was exceptional. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • All-Inclusive Meals: From breakfast to dinner, every meal was a treat.
  • 24/7 Room Service: Cravings at midnight? No problem!
  • Welcome Champagne: A bubbly start to our journey.
  • BYO Alcohol: We brought our favorite drinks, adding a personal touch to our evenings.

Health and Wellness

As a professional acupuncturist, I was pleasantly surprised to find free acupuncture services onboard. While other wellness services like massages were available, they were a bit pricey. But hey, it’s all about indulging a little when you’re at sea, right?

Entertainment and Activities

The ship was a hub of entertainment. Here’s what we loved:

  • Bingo Nights: Surprisingly competitive and loads of fun.
  • Dance Shows: A treat for the eyes and soul.
  • Daily Activities: From quizzes to competitions, there was never a dull moment.

Seamless Connectivity

Working remotely was a breeze, thanks to the ship’s robust internet connection. I could easily manage my tasks, stay connected with my clients, and even upload videos without any hassle.

An Unforeseen Event

Our peaceful journey had a moment of drama when a fellow passenger needed urgent medical attention. The efficiency and professionalism of the crew during the helicopter evacuation were commendable. It was a reminder of the unexpected turns life can take, even at sea.


This month-long journey on the Cunard Queen Elizabeth was more than just a trip; it was a life-changing experience. It showed me that you could blend work and adventure seamlessly. As I look forward to my next sea voyage, I’m excited to share more stories and tips with you all. Stay tuned for more tales from the ocean!
