Fathom Announces Pricing on Cuba and Dominican Republic Voyages

fathomCarnival Corp.'s new social impact travel brand, Fathom, has announced prices for its new 2016 itineraries to Cuba and the Dominican Republic

The price structure consolidates the core fare options into four categories based on stateroom type. The company also streamlined pricing for single, double and triple occupancy.

Estimated taxes, fees and port expenses are $200 extra and a $300 per-person deposit is required for all stateroom categories and occupancy levels. Final payments are due 150 days prior to departure. Travelers may begin tailoring their trips later this fall (e.g., impact activities selection, stateroom selections, etc.).

Prices for seven-day educational and cultural exchange itineraries to Cuba start at $1,800 per person, excluding taxes, fees and port expenses and including all meals on the ship, onboard social impact immersion experiences and certain on-the-ground cultural immersion activities. There are four pricing levels, based on stateroom configuration and location, and prices vary by low season (Sept. 18, Oct. 2), shoulder season (May 1, 15, Aug. 21, Sept. 4) and peak season (May 29, June 12, 26, July 10, 24, Aug. 7).

Additional recreational activities and dining and beverage packages will be priced separately. Estimated taxes, fees and port expenses are $500 extra and a $600 per-person deposit is required for all stateroom categories and occupancy levels. Final payments are due 150 days prior to departure. Travelers may begin tailoring their trips later this fall. Fathom Cuban itineraries are subject to Cuban approval, which Carnival Corporation said it is confident is forthcoming.

Fathom said it also has streamlined pricing for single, double and triple occupancy. Prices listed are per person, based on double occupancy. Other pricing details include:

  • Triple and Quad Pricing: 50 percent discount off per-person double occupancy price (all categories).
  • Single Supplement: 150 percent of per-traveler double occupancy price for interior, exterior ocean-view and balcony staterooms; 200 percent per traveler double occupancy price for suites.

Fathom is also offering a Single Traveler Share Program for individual travelers who may be traveling alone and looking to share the cost of a double-occupancy stateroom. As part of its Single Traveler Share program, Fathom guarantees single travelers the company will match individuals with other single travelers of the same gender who are interested in the same type of staterooms (interior and ocean view only). If Fathom cannot find a suitable roommate, it will not charge the traveler the single supplement fare even if the passenger travels alone in the stateroom (the single traveler is guaranteed the per-traveler double occupancy fare of 100 percent of fare vs. 150 percent).

According to Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation, a percentage of every impact travel ticket purchase price goes to Fathom partner organizations in the Dominican Republic and Cuba in the form of donations to cover on-the-ground activities, including supplies, travel, personnel to assist with the activities and funding to support the partner organizations’ overall missions.
