Carnival Corporation’s newest cruise brand, Fathom Travel, has added two last minute sailings to Cuba this fall.
Fathom currently sails seven night cruises to Cuba from Miami, Florida every other week on MV Adonia. Fathom is the only cruise line that sails to Cuba from the U.S. and the cruise line has added two additional sailings to Cuba on October 9 and November 6 to help meet demand.
Fathom’s seven-day cruises from Miami to Cuba visit the historic ports of Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. In post-cruise surveys, Fathom guests are giving high marks for a great experience at all three destinations, which would otherwise be challenging to visit, and on the Adonia, which houses 700 travelers, providing a sense of intimacy that guests are enjoying.
Highlights of the highly sought after cruise vacation include the island’s famously friendly people, Spanish and French colonial architecture, traditional Cuban music and dance, restaurants with genuine Cuban cuisine, museums, cathedrals, coastal fortresses, the cannons on San Juan Hill, the shores of Cojimar that were Ernest Hemingway’s favorite fishing village, and lively nightlife including the famous Tropicana Club, and much more.
Tara Russell, President of Fathom Travel, gave the following statement: “Carnival Corporation made history when Fathom arrived in Havana on May 2 of this year, and we continue to strengthen our relationships as the only U.S. cruise company sailing to Cuba from the U.S. – and we are very grateful to Cuban officials for granting us two new dates to accommodate more travelers wanting to sail with Fathom to visit their remarkable country.”
Fathom has seen strong demand for cruises to Cuba and that is evident in the fact that all voyages for the rest of 2016 are nearly sold out. The cruise line has strong bookings for 2017 and they expect brisk sales for these two additional sailings.
Bookings for these two new sailings can be done through your local travel agent or directly through the cruise line.
Kimberli McCallum, a recent Fathom traveler from St. Louis, said the following about her cruise to Cuba: “Cruising aboard Fathom was the perfect way to travel to Cuba – the experience blew me away. It was my first cruise and I can’t believe how much I loved it! My husband and I were sitting on our cabin’s balcony one evening wondering why we had waited so long to cruise. Plus, visiting Cuba was better than I ever imagined. Havana is so beautiful and the art, the music and the people were all amazing!”
Prices for seven-day itineraries to Cuba start at $1,599 per person, excluding Cuban visas, taxes, fees and port expenses, and include all meals on the ship and lunch while in the three ports, onboard experiences and on-the-ground activities. Prices will vary by season.
