Problems for fathom

I’ve done a few posts about Carnival Corp’s new cruise line, fathom. This is the one which is doing “involvement” cruises to the Dominican Republic and to Cuba. With the thawing of relations between the US and Cuba, especially in the wake of President Obama’s visit there last month, it must have been thought that […]
