Social impact cruise line Fathom has announced additional sailing dates, extending Adonia’s stay in the Caribbean through to December 2017. The move comes as demand continues to grow for Fathom and its first-of-a-kind voyages from the US to Cuba and the Dominican republic
“We have been humbled by the tremendous response Fathom has received from travellers eager to experience Fathom while helping the Dominican Republic to flourish and making history through human connections and immersive experiences in Cuba,” says Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation.
“Fathom resonates with travellers 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 savouring the comforts of premium accommodations aboard the intimate, small-ship, MV Adonia – not to mention its excellent and diverse dining, service and onboard amenities.”
According to Russell, Fathom also appeals to travellers as a meaningful way to experience personal growth while making purposeful and engaging contributions to the world, starting in the Dominican Republic. “There is genuine excitement about Fathom’s ability to empower travellers to serve and immerse alongside locals in the Dominican Republic to create scalable and sustainable, transformative impact that will play an important role in helping the Caribbean region flourish,” she said.
Fathom will depart on weekly seven-day voyages from Miami aboard the 704-passenger Adonia – redeployed from from P&O Cruises in the UK.
Dates for seven-day voyages departing on Sundays roundtrip from Miami during 2017 include the dates below. Fathom’s reservations systems will be ready to take 2017 bookings by June 1, 2016.
“The decision to add 2017 Fathom sailing dates underscores our enthusiasm for Fathom and our experience to date with the impact it is having,” said Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation. “The feedback from travellers, travel professionals, community leaders and our own employees has been extremely positive.
Fares for seven-day cruises to the Dominican Republic start at $974 per person. The rates for seven-day cruises to Cuba begin at $1,899.
