U.S.-Based Fathom Announces First Cruise to Cuba

MIAMI – The U.S.-based cruise ship company Fathom, owned by the Carnival Corporation, will launch its inaugural voyage to Cuba this May, a seven-day trip that will take passengers to a number of ports of that Caribbean country before returning to Miami where the tour began.

Fathom made the announcement at Seatrade Cruise Global, a trade fair that began Monday in Fort Lauderdale, north of Miami.

On the Fathom Web site it is still possible to make reservations for the cruise to Cuba at prices ranging from $1,800 per person for an inside cabin to $7,320 for a suite.

If no last-minute problems arise, the Adonia 1, with a capacity for 704 passengers, will set off on the cruise line’s inaugural voyage on May 1 and will arrive at Havana the same day.

According to the program, the first two days will be dedicated to cultural activities in Havana, the third will feature “cultural immersion” at sea, on the fourth the ship will call in at Cienfuegos where it will remain until the next day, and on the fifth it will arrive at Santiago de Cuba, its last port of call in Cuba.

The cruise ship will weigh anchor at Santiago on the sixth day and head for Miami, where it will arrive on the seventh day.

“We’re pioneering history and we’re so excited for people to join us in that experience,” Fathom president Tara Russell said in a statement to local media.

Russell described the journey to Cuba as “impact cruising,” which means it is designed for travelers who really want to immerse themselves in Cuban culture.

The U.S. government announced Tuesday new regulations designed to continue boosting trade and travel between the U.S. and Cuba.
