It was history in the making as Carnival’s Fathom cruise brand officially began its first-ever cruise to Cuba, the first cruise by a US company to Cuba in more than a half-century.

The MV Adonia set sail from PortMiami late Sunday afternoon on a seven-night itinerary that will include three-and-a-half days of shore excursions, including stops in Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Cienfuegos.

Fathom is Carnival’s “social impact” cruise brand, meaning a smaller ship and an itinerary focused on what the company calls a “thoughtful cultural exchange experience.”

On board, the itinerary includes activities from dancing lessons to Cuban cocktail classes, with three meals a day and a traditional cruise cabin.

The cruises are authorized under the United States’ “people to people” travel license for Cuba trips.

Fathom cruises start at around $2100 per person.
