Fathom has announced it is adding two more Cuba sailings this fall due to strong demand.
The newest cruise brand from the Carnival Corporation which is the only U.S. cruise line sailing to Cuba is adding two additional sailings. The two extra cruises will be in October and November.
The Adonia cruise ship which is the only ship operated by Fathom will depart on a week-long itinerary on Sunday October 9 and again on Sunday November 6, 2016. The additional sailings will as usual depart from Port Miami and will include two days in Havana.
Tara Russell, president of Fathom said:
“Carnival Corporation made history when Fathom arrived in Havana on May 2 of this year, and we continue to strengthen our relationships as the only U.S. cruise company sailing to Cuba from the U.S. – and we are very grateful to Cuban officials for granting us two new dates to accommodate more travelers wanting to sail with Fathom to visit their remarkable country,” referring to the first time in more than 40 years a U.S. cruise line has sailed from the U.S. to Cuba.
Fathom isn’t like a regular cruise line, it gives cruisers the chance to make a difference in the ports the ship calls at. Guests can help the local area in many unique experiences like planting trees and teaching English.
“Because demand is so strong, we encourage travelers to book as soon as possible for the October 9 and November 6 cruises, as we expect brisk sales for the new sailings on our small premium ship, the Adonia. For people interested in other dates for our Cuba sailings, we are almost sold out for the year with only a small number of staterooms available for a few remaining fall cruises to Cuba, and we have extremely strong demand for 2017.”
Adonia can carry 700 passengers and sails out of Miami, Florida year round. The ship alternates on week-long cruises to Cuba and then the Dominican Republic. The new sailings announced today are now open for booking. Cruise Hive readers can also browse the best deals for Fathom cruises.
