On Sunday, April 24 Fathoms inaugural cruise with the Adonia cruise ship arrived back at its home port in Miami, Florida. The first official cruise which aimed at making a difference with hundreds of passengers helping the local people of Dominican Republic was a huge success.

The 704 passenger Adonia which is Fathoms first cruise ship set off on a new form of cruising on a 7-night voyage. The ship departed PortMiami on April 17 and headed straight for the cruise line’s new resort at Amber Cove located in the Puerto Plata region. Once in port, guests got the chance to impact people lives with tours that make a difference.

Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation said:

“Feedback from our guests during the voyage was extremely positive,”

“This first voyage provided more evidence there is a growing market of guests who want to make a positive, direct impact when traveling. Fathom gave our guests a unique way to leave an impression on a very personal level within the community, as well as have an extraordinarily rewarding experience.”

The Adonia has already set sail on its second Dominican Republic cruise but on May 1, Fathom will embark on its first ever voyage to Cuba. The ship will alternate between the two countries where passengers will be able to choose tours like teaching kids English and planting trees.

Tara Russell added:

“We have already accomplished a lot in a short period of time – but there is still much to do,”

“While we celebrated and introduced the unique Fathom experience to our guests last week, we are looking forward to taking our guests every other week to the Dominican to continue making a profound and lasting impact for people in the country.”

Guests on the inaugural voyage also had a chance for some fun at Amber Cove with all its activities on offer. With the chance to meet locals in need the Fathom experience has impacted them to take more action back home. This new form of cruising to the Dominican Republic starts at $974 per person.
