UPDATE – March 2016 – Cuba Officials Have Approved Carnival’s Bid!
Carnival Cruise lines has announced plans to offer cruises to Cuba from Miami starting in 2016! Earlier this week it was announced that MSC cruises was also offering cruises to Cuba. Carnival will be offering cruises departing Miami on a 7 day “people to people” cruise which emphasizes social impact through a newly established Carnival brand called “fathom.”
The Fathom concept was announced in June, and offers cruises that allow vacationers to experience a cruise while at the same time, making an impact in underdeveloped countries through service projects that are arranged by fathom.
Carnival has already received approvals from the United States government for these unique vacations and are currently waiting on Cuban authorities to approve the plans.
Fathom cruises are offered through a single ship in the Carnival fleet; The Adonia, which is a 710 passenger ship that’s been sailing with Carnival brand P&O cruises and with Princess cruise lines since the parent company acquired it in 2006.
Traveling on a social impact vacation like fathom plans to offer doesn’t come cheap. 7 night cruises will start at just under $3000USD per person.
