Fathom added two Cuba sailing dates this fall, citing strong demand. Fathom's Adonia is the only ship sanctioned to operate cruises directly from the US to Cuba.

The additional departure dates are Oct. 9 and Nov. 6.

For both week-long cruises, Adonia will depart PortMiami for three destinations in Cuba, including two days in Havana.

'We are very grateful to Cuban officials for granting us two new dates to accommodate more travelers wanting to sail with Fathom to visit their remarkable country,' said Tara Russell, president of Fathom.

She added that since Adonia's inaugural Cuba voyage in early May, Fathom has experienced 'strong, continued demand from travelers ... Our bookings for the fall are strong,' she added, 'and the word is spreading: Going on a cruise with Fathom to Cuba is the best, easiest and most enjoyable way to visit this unique country.'

Fathom is almost sold out for the year with only a small number of staterooms available for a few remaining fall cruises to Cuba, Russell said, 'and we have extremely strong demand for 2017.'

In addition to Havana, Adonia visits Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba.

Fathom said passengers are giving high marks for a great experience at all three destinations in post-cruise surveys.

Some highlights include the island’s famously friendly people, Spanish and French colonial architecture, traditional Cuban music and dance, restaurants with genuine Cuban cuisine, museums, cathedrals, coastal fortresses, the cannons on San Juan Hill, the shores of Cojimar that were Ernest Hemingway’s favorite fishing village, and lively nightlife including the famous Tropicana Club.

Fathom travelers self-certify (to comply with regulations) and can experience the island with approved people-to-people cultural exchange activities.

Prices for Cuba cruises start at $1,599 per person, excluding Cuban visas, taxes, fees and port expenses, and include all meals on the ship and lunch while in the three ports, on-board experiences and on-the-ground activities. A fully refundable $600 per person deposit is required for all cabin categories and occupancy levels. Final payment is due 90 days prior to departure.
