Social impact travel set sail when Carnival Corporation’s Fathom Travel brand took to the seas. Fathom is Carnival’s 10th brand, and specializes in cruises that allow guests to participate in port activities that have a positive and lasting impact on the areas they visit. These activities are as varied as helping improve language skills to working with local entrepreneurs to help ensure the success of their businesses.
Fathom is celebrating its inaugural season with very attractive fares to the Dominican Republic. Guests who book a social impact cruise to the Dominican Republic with Fathom through November 16, 2016 can book a 7-day cruise starting at $499 for inside cabins. Fathom is also offering great discounts for third and fourth guests with a 50 percent off double occupancy rate.
These special fares are available for all stateroom categories:
“We want to provide unique ways for our guests to give, learn, grow in spirit, and help build a sense of community that reaches out to the wider world,” said Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation. “Our maiden voyage is behind us, but there is still so much all of us can accomplish together. It is an exciting time for us all, and we look forward to bringing people with a passion for travel and a desire to make a difference in this world to the Dominican Republic so we may keep up the significant impact we have already accomplished.”
