Cruise Group Travel: Because together, we can do more than any one of us can do alone.
There’s strength in numbers. In fact, that acknowledged truth lies at the heart of the Fathom travel experience. By joining forces with local residents and partner organizations, you and your family, friends, or group can participate in an ongoing effort to improve environmental, educational, and economic conditions for the people of the Dominican Republic. By joining other travelers on a cultural exchange journey to Cuba, you can help forge new ties of friendship as you discover a vibrant country that, until now, most U.S. travelers have only seen in photographs. Yes, it’s a cruise. It’s adventurous. It’s fun. But, for groups of any size, or even for solo travelers who want to be part of something bigger, it’s also a bonding experience you’ll never forget.
You need a vacation. But not just any vacation.
If you’ve been looking for a way to be part of something bigger than yourself, a Caribbean cruise may not sound like the logical place to start. But, amazingly, it is. Because a Fathom cruise is far more than fun and games on some postcard-pretty beach. It’s a chance to make a genuine difference in the world, in the company of other travelers who share your commitment to mindful, meaningful relationships between people and cultures.
It’s never too soon to start sharing the world with your children, or to start teaching them by example about the value of making a difference. A number of Fathom impact activities are purposely family-friendly, with opportunities for children eight years old and up to participate, broaden their horizons, express their creative side, and have some fun in the process.
Of all the experiences you share with your family – your children, your grandchildren, your parents, your grandparents – the ones you remember longest are the ones that bring you together with a common purpose. Sometimes it’s a family reunion. A wedding. A graduation. Or any celebration of who you are as a family, and of why that matters.
And sometimes it’s a cruise. But not just any cruise.
When you think about faith-based travel, the word “cruise” probably doesn’t come immediately to mind. But Fathom’s pioneering voyages to the Dominican Republic and Cuba are about to change all that.
The whole purpose of the Fathom experience is to give, to learn, to grow in spirit, and to help build a sense of community that reaches out to the wider world. In the Dominican Republic, your group can work on established projects that continue to improve the lives of local residents. In Cuba, you can share the adventure of a pioneering cultural exchange that focuses on learning, sharing, and building new bridges between people.
We’re all in this together. After all the meetings, all the team-building exercises, all the adventure of discovering a new place and building new bonds between co-workers, that’s the ultimate takeaway from any successful corporate retreat.
And that’s what makes a Fathom cruise such a perfect fit for conferences, planning retreats, and other corporate gatherings of any size.
At its heart, Fathom is about teamwork, partnership, and growth.
There’s a kind of education no classroom setting can ever provide. Yet it’s the kind that can benefit every student, from the youngest middle-schooler to the mature but still searching college senior.
At heart, at every stage, nearly all students have a secret desire to try out their newly acquired wings and leave the wider world a little different because they’ve been there.
The modern 704-passenger Adonia, your home for the seven days of your journey, is a small adventure in itself. In addition to nourishing your hunger to make a difference, your voyage will also nourish your body with thoughtfully prepared, Cuban- and Dominican-inspired meals that include a variety of vegetarian options. There’s a pool, a gym, a games deck, even a full-sized library. And, of course, there’s the infinite mystery of the wide, wide sea around you. So your spirit gets a bit of extra nourishment too.
But, beyond its built-in amenities, what matters most about the Adonia is its size. It’s small enough to let you get genuinely acquainted with your fellow travelers who share your love of adventure. And, for the Fathom voyager, that’s the most important amenity of all.
