What is Fathom?
 
It's a new kind of cruise that combines your love of travel with your desire to make a difference.
 
Travel With Purpose 

Pioneered by Fathom, impact travel is a whole new category of travel: it’s travel with purpose. Travel that transforms lives. Sometimes including your own. Impact travel with Fathom provides the opportunity to build community with like-minded travelers, become immersed in another culture, and work alongside its people to create enduring social impact.

 
Every Fathom™ journey is based on our sincere belief that the person-to-person connection is among the strongest catalysts for transformation. What sets Fathom apart is the long-term, systematic partnership approach with its partner countries paired with the unique business model that allows for sustained impact and lasting development. Fathom’s scale and global vision reach beyond what the world has ever seen.
 
The adventure begins in Spring 2016 with separate round-trip voyages from Miami to two of the Caribbean’s most desired destinations: the Dominican Republic and Cuba. In the Dominican Republic, you’ll have the opportunity to work side by side with local residents in existing programs that focus on improving the lives of children, families and communities. In Cuba, you’ll participate in an ongoing cultural exchange program that gives you the opportunity to interact with the Cuban people, one on one.
 
And you’ll come home seven days later knowing that, for the people whose lives you’ve just touched, the world has become a little brighter because of you.
 
People + Passion + Partnership = Enduring Social Impact

CUBA: A Meeting of People. And Cultures.Fathom Cuba Map
 
For mindful travelers, Fathom offers a truly historic opportunity: a chance to help build new bridges to a rich and vibrant culture that, until now, hasn’t been open to U.S. travelers by sea for more than 50 years.
 
Fathom is proud to be among the first cruise ship companies to be granted U.S. approval for round-trip travel between the U.S. and multiple destinations in Cuba, including Havana, Cienfuegos, and Santiago de Cuba. Our intention is to create the kind of true cultural immersion experience that will give you and your fellow travelers the rare chance to learn more about the lives and aspirations of the Cuban people.
 
Fathom cruise itineraries to Cuba are authorized under current people-to-people guidelines as set forth by the U.S. government, which allow travel to Cuba for the purpose of engaging in activities that support the Cuban people. As a Fathom traveler, you’ll have the opportunity to interact, one on one, with the artists, musicians, small-business owners, students, health workers and others who make up the fabric of Cuban society. And you’ll quickly realize that what you could learn from them is every bit as important as what they could learn from you.
 
Your own itinerary might include a walking tour of Havana’s Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage site. A visit to an organic farm. A meal at a home-based restaurant. An English workshop with students at a local primary school. A brainstorming and idea-sharing session with local microentrepreneurs. A chance to interact with local artists and musicians in their own environment, as you deepen your understanding of the arts as a vital bridge between people and cultures.
 
Dominican Republic: A Journey Of A Different KindFathom DR Map
 

Almost from the moment you step on board your ship in Miami, you’ll realize that a Fathom™ voyage is anything but travel as usual. Yes, of course you’ll have leisure moments, creature comforts and time for recreation. But, during your time at sea, you’ll also be focused on building a community with your fellow travelers, as you participate in on-board activities designed specifically to prepare you for your on-ground impact experience.
 
Once your ship docks in Amber Cove, you’ll put all that preparation to good use. During your time on the ground, you’ll work alongside local community members on carefully chosen projects focused on improving educational, environmental, and economic conditions in the Dominican Republic.
 
Meet Our Partners
 
Fathom is proud to work alongside so many amazing local organizations. We can't wait for you to meet them in person.
 
Our lead impact partners, Entrena and IDDI, have strong community connections in the northern Dominican Republic. Their deep roots and long experience provide us with a greater understanding of the specific needs of the local communities, and their well-established programs form the foundation that allows us to help address those needs in the most meaningful way.
