Sailing dates for Fathom have been added through December 2017, adding an additional 13 months of week long cruises from Miami, Florida. The cruises will continue to alternate each week between social impact activities in the Dominican Republic to cultural immersion trips to Cuba.
Tara Russell, president of Fathom, gave the following statement: “We have been humbled by the tremendous response Fathom has received from travelers eager to experience Fathom while helping the Dominican Republic to flourish and making history through human connections and immersive experiences in Cuba.”
“Fathom resonates with travelers as the best way to travel with intention, to culturally immerse, to experience and to see more. For example, Fathom visits three incredible, diverse locations in Cuba during its itinerary while having the convenience of unpacking once and savoring the comforts of premium accommodations aboard the intimate, small-ship, MV Adonia – not to mention its excellent and diverse dining, service and onboard amenities.”
Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation, said that part of the reason to add another year of sailings was due to the positive feedback the cruise line has received from travelers, travel professionals, and community leaders who have taken one of the first few cruises on Fathom.
Prices for the seven night cruises to the Dominican Republic start at $974 per person with cruises to Cuba starting at $1,889 per person, excluding visas, taxes, and fees.
Fathom recently made history by being the first cruise line to sail to Cuba from the U.S. in over 50 years. The culturally immersive cruise itinerary features experiences in the Cuban ports of Havana, Cienfuegos, and Santiago de Cuba.
The seven night sailings to the Dominican Republic spend four days in Amber Cove, Carnival Corporation’s newest cruise port. While in Amber Cove, passengers partake in a few of the following social impact activities: reforestation, community English, pouring cement floors in homes, English in local schools, and creating water filters to provide clean drinking water for the locals.
Cruise Fever had the opportunity to sail on the maiden Fathom voyage to the Dominican Republic and experience first hand what the social impact trips were all about. You can read about our experiences here.
Reservations for the additional 13 months of voyages can be booked starting June 1, 2016.
