Fathom outlines onboard facilities and amenities
Fathom, Carnival Corporation's newest brand shared details on its onboard facilities and amenities.

When Fathom's 704-passenger Adonia starts cruising in the Dominican Republic and Cuba next year facilities will include a spa complex, games deck, a pool overlooked by a sun deck, a fitness center with panoramic views and a wide selection of exercise equipment, a full-sized library, flavorful regionally inspired foods and lively Caribbean-themed musical performances.  
The programming will range from engaging cultural and geographic immersions exploring the unique and storied histories and customs of the Dominican and Cuba, to interactive social impact workshops that will stimulate the imagination. Other examples include conversational Spanish coaching to help travelers interact with local citizens upon arrival.

Fathom will also feature extensive entertainment programming ranging from culturally inspired music and movies to cocktail mixing and gourmet cooking classes.
The Ocean Grill is Adonia's specialty restaurant that will serve authentic and modern Cuban and Dominican food.
The Glass House wine bar will focus on carefully selected new-world wines by the glass as well as beer and cocktails.
Each voyage begins with one-to-two days at sea.

Fathom trips are 'impact inclusive' – including all carefully designed onboard cultural immersion events and impact workshops. They will also include access to all keynote speakers series and educational sessions about each country’s history and geography that will help travelers become better familiarized with the Dominican Republic and Cuba.  
Travelers may also brush up on their dance skills and expand their musical horizons by learning new rhythmic moves onboard during Fathom dance classes teaching merengue, the national dance in the Dominican Republic, and salsa, the national dance of Cuba.
On-board retail will feature unique and authentic goods and merchandise from purpose-driven businesses that empower local entrepreneurs around the globe.
'One of the most important aspects of every Fathom voyage is the onboard experience before and after the on-ground activities because it combines a great community building environment and playground with a powerful educational venue,' said Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation.
Prices for the seven-day trips to the Dominican Republic start at $974 per person, excluding taxes, fees and port expenses and including all meals on the ship, onboard social impact immersion experiences, three onshore social impact activities and related supplies. Prices will vary by season.

Prices for seven-day itineraries to Cuba start at $1,800 per person.
