Carnival Corp announced yesterday that Adonia would have her stay in the Caribbean sailing for fathom extended until the end of December 2017. I think that means an additional year – I believe the previously-announced sailings were only until the end of this year, 2016. The Carnival Corp press release says “Due to growing demand, Fathom adds sailing dates to Cuba and Dominican Republic, offering cultural immersion and educational, environmental and economic development impact activities“.
It also says “Fathom also appeals to travelers as a meaningful way to experience personal growth while making purposeful and engaging contributions to the world“, so it looks as if the doubts I expressed about fathom’s ‘social impact travel’ business model were wrong.
