Fathom, a New Way to Social Impact Travel – Episode 14

Fathom a new type of travel, a new type of vacation is the chance to combine the love of fun in the sun on a tropical paradise with the opportunity to give back through giving your time, effort, energy, and resources to make a difference. The opportunity to both travel deep to make an impact and cruise the Caribbean.

Carnival Cruise just released its newest line, Fathom Travel and it provides week long cruise to the Dominican Republic and Cuba on rotating weeks. Each cruise is different, but the Dominican trip was designed to make an impact on the island and its communities and allow passengers not just access to rest and relaxation, but to enable them take on voluntourism cruise excursions.

    I honestly had no idea cruises like this existed, but it seems like a great way to get a new gen out on the high seas. Spent some time on the Fathom site, and am kind of hoping the Cuba trip gets outfitted with activities the way the DR trip is. Thanks for the info, Craig!

      well it is brand new… so glad you were inspired to hit the site too… And yes, Cuba is different, I suspect since they are just opening up, it will be a while before we can go to the island and “help” in the way we can in the DR… but time will tell and I am sure Fathom will be able to help open that door with its progress in the DR… stay making an impact, Craig

    Impact travel is very dear to me, as I have volunteered in South America and hosted a panel discussion on meaningful travel. I’m positively surprised that an ocean cruise ship would be involved in this, given how eco-unfriendly those can be… But I have to give credit where it’s due. This seems like a great initiative, so let’s see what happens down the road.

      Yes, it is a first in this industry or really any aspect of travel with this scale…Yes, perhaps ships are not as eco-friendly as they can be and hopefully become… but it really is a great initiative and the start of something on a grand scale… stay meaningful, Craig
