Carnival Corporation & plc’s social impact travel brand Fathom has added extra dates for its Cuba and Dominican Republic sailings, extending its deployment in the Caribbean until December 2017.

The 2017 voyages, which can be booked from 1 June 2016, will depart from PortMiami, US onboard the 704-passenger Adonia every Sunday and last seven days. Additional information about sailing dates can be found here.

“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. Our travellers and trade partners are asking for additional sailing dates – and we are happy to oblige.”

Launched in June 2015, Fathom departed on its first-ever voyage on 17 April to the Dominican Republic and then sailed its first Cuba voyage on 1 May, becoming the first cruise company to sail from the US to Cuba in more than 50 years. Each seven-day voyage enables travellers to participate in various artistic, educational and humanitarian activities that support cultural and economic development in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, and allows them free time for leisure or sightseeing opportunities.

“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,” said 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.”
