Fathom Celebrates Its Partner Kind Traveler’s One-Year Anniversary
Fathom — the immersion and enrichment experience brand from Carnival Corporation, salutes the one-year anniversary of Kind Traveler, the travel industry’s first socially responsible, ‘Give + Get’ hotel booking platform and blog.
Fathom, the “social impact” cruise line created by Carnival Corporation & PLC in 2015, is on its last Cuba cruise this week; it already underwent its last voluntourism sailing in the Dominican Republic last week. (cruisecritic.com)
Fathom offers one of the travel industry’s most unique experiences – a “Cultures of the Caribbean” cruise that visits the charming Cuban city of Santiago de Cuba and then travels to Amber Cove on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic for the Fathom brand’s highly rated social impact activities.
When Carol Matulonis first heard about Fathom, a cruise line that offers volunteer-focused trips, she was on board with the idea immediately. “I just thought it was amazing and I booked it that same week,” the Fort Pierce, Florida resident said. (skift.com)
While it’s a surprise that Carnival Corporation pivoted less than a year from its launch, the fact that its weeklong Dominican Republic cruises were selling for the shockingly low price of $249 signaled limited appeal. (cruisecritic.com)
As news of Carnival Corporation’s decision to drop Fathom Adonia broke, Cruise Critic members were divided, with U.K. members welcoming the decision to return the ship to P&O Cruises and U.S. members expressing mixed feelings over the move. (cruisecritic.com)
Fathom is ceasing operation by June 2017, according to Carnival Corporation spokesman Roger Frizzell, who was quoted in various media outlets. He could not be reached for comment at press time and no official statement was available from Carnival or Fathom. (cruiseindustrynews.com)
