Carnival Corporation’s Fathom cruise brand is expanding its sailings to Cuba.
The company, which made the first cruise trip by a US company to Cuba in more than a half century last month, has added sailing dates to Cuba and the Dominican Republic through December 2017.
“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,” said Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation. “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.”
Fathom will continue operating weekly seven-day voyages from PortMiami on board the MV Adonia.
“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 travelers, travel professionals, community leaders and our own employees has been extremely positive. Our travelers and trade partners are asking for additional sailing dates – and we are happy to oblige.”
Fathom will begin talking 2017 bookings by June 1, 2016.
