Princess Adds Two Fathom Sailings to Hurricane-Affected Destinations

Princess Cruises has announced that it is adding two more Fathom Travel sailings to hurricane-affected destinations in the Caribbean. The first such sailing, on the January 20 departure of Crown Princess, has sold out. The Regal Princess and Caribbean Princess will offer the additional sailings, departing March 18 and May 26, respectively.

The new small group sailings will allow guests to take part in local impact activities in Caribbean destinations impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria, under the direction of a small group leader. The inaugural sailing on Crown Princess, an eight-day itinerary that visited Antigua, St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Amber Cove, included activities like a donation drop of more than 2,000 items for young families in St. Thomas or repairing a school and homes in a community in the Dominican Republic.

Once booked, Princess Cruises / Fathom guests must email [email protected] to join the group. After that, they will receive onboard credits and special invitations to Fathom onboard programming, networking, cocktail events and exclusive shore excursions.

Fathom initially debuted as a standalone social impact brand for Carnival Corporation, offering voluntourism sailings onboard the Adonia (which has since been purchased by Azamara Club Cruises). Carnival Corp. announced that Fathom would cease operating as a standalone brand late in 2016, although it would continue to offer social impact shore excursions on sailing by other Carnival Corp. brands.

Travelers who can’t attend a Fathom sailing but are still interested in contributing to rebuilding efforts can donate at All proceeds will go directly to rebuilding the Loma de la Bestia community in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.
