From surfing online to navigating at sea, it’s a short step, just go to the Ticketcrociere website. The travel agency specialized in online cruises, combining business with pleasure, has decided to move part of the office on board a cruise for a week. Ticketcrociere is the first Web site in Italy to offer the best cruises at extremely competitive prices. Innovative and pioneer in the cruise field, it offers 8,000 itineraries in real time, with the widest range of cruise lines on the market. The innovation lies precisely in the new Sail Working proposal, on board the Costa Smeralda (Costa Cruises flagship). The cruise had been adapted to meet the needs of smart workers.

The Sail Working for the team consisting of seven people who are part of the staff of the Agency, which will be operational on board all week, has left two days ago. This was also possible thanks to the evolution of on-board technologies. More and more powerful Internet connections and WiFi system available in all areas, common and private ones. A way to combine work with leisure opportunities that a ship can offer.

On board, life has returned to the pre-Covid era. No curfew, possibility to go to the gym, swimming pool, movie theater, wellness center and take part in the entertainment activities scheduled by the organizers. In addition to being able to take part in the protected excursions organized by the company (and work, of course).

The upcoming green pass for tourists and the acceleration on vaccines open up the recovery of the travel sector. The cruises are back and many people are looking for a new formula to experience the sea… Boundaries between vacation and work becomes increasingly thin and increasingly embraces the philosophy of digital nomads who, at the end of the working day, can enjoy their free time to the fullest. A new world without sacrifices, which manages to combine work needs with personal ones, sail working is proposed as a new alternative to the home office.

We want to reward our agents with a formula that can add leisure, relaxation, evenings at the restaurant without checking the time, opportunities to discover destinations to smart working. Not to mention how a sea view breakfast can make you start the day better. At a time like the one we are going through, psychophysical well-being is even more important.

But who said that an itinerant ship cannot also be the ideal solution to overcome the domestic monotony of smart working?

Sail working is actually not a big news for digital nomads. But cruising represents a premium alternative to the prehistoric digital nomad’s boat, which reconciled smart working with the context of the boat, working immersed in nature and diving during the lunch break.

However, for lovers of non-prepackaged adventures, we recommend taking a look at Sailogy, the online platform for boat rental all over the world with or without skipper. On the platform you will also find a collection of some practical tips to carry out sail working in the best possible way. Based on the profiles developed by Extended DISC Italy, Saioloy has drawn up a list of the benefits of smart working on a boat for the various behavioral styles of workers.
