Cruise to Cuba
Cuba Cultural Exchange Voyages on Fathom
Be one of the first to see Cuba in comfort
Fathom offers mindful travelers a truly historic opportunity: a chance to help build new bridges to a rich and vibrant culture that hasn’t been open to U.S. visitors for more than 50 years. Fathom is proud to be among the first companies to be granted sailing rights to Cuba. Our intention is to develop cultural immersion experiences that give you and your fellow travelers the rare chance to learn more about the everyday lives of the Cuban people – and to harness the power of human connection to make relevant, lasting contributions that will continue to have an impact long after your ship sets sail on the return journey to Miami.
See Cuba as the Cubans See It.
Your itinerary for your Fathom voyage to Cuba will be authorized under current U.S.-to-Cuba travel guidelines, which allow travel to Cuba for the purpose of engaging in activities that support the Cuban people. And support, you’ll find, takes many forms. As a Fathom traveler, you’ll have the opportunity to interact, one on one, with the artists, musicians, small-business owners, students, health workers and others who make up the fabric of Cuban society. And you’ll quickly realize that what you can learn from them is every bit as important as what they can learn from you.
If you’re serious in your desire to immerse yourself in another culture, this is your invitation to join us. With your help, Fathom’s program of cultural, artistic, and humanitarian exchanges can create new bonds between the people of the U.S. and Cuba, support increased economic activity, and encourage the Cuban people to share their stories more completely with the world. And, as you’ll discover, they do have stories worth sharing.
Your Home at Sea.
The 710-passenger Adonia will serve as a comfortable home base throughout your trip. With restaurants, lounges, bars, pools, a spa, a state-of- the-art gym, and all the other amenities of a 21st-century passenger ship, you’ll never lack for opportunities to relax. Thoughtfully prepared Cuban-inspired meals will nourish your body. And, of course, there’s the infinite mystery of the wide open sea around you. So your spirit gets a bit of extra nourishment too. In addition to its built-in amenities, the Adonia was purposely chosen for this journey because it’s small enough to let you get genuinely acquainted with your fellow travelers: the people who share your commitment to meaningful travel, the people who’ll be part of your Cuban experience onshore. And, for the Fathom voyager, that could be the most important amenity of all.
Ports of Call
Two Days in HAVANA
Cuba’s colorful capital is probably best known for the Spanish-influenced architecture of Old Havana. But its historic castles, fortresses, cathedrals, mansions, and public buildings vie for attention with the city’s lively music and entertainment scene, an eclectic and sophisticated mix of museums, art galleries, music, dance, and open air festivals that take full advantage of the island’s sunnyCIENFUEGOS
SANTIAGO DE CUBA
The distinctly Caribbean spirit of Santiago de Cuba is evident in every aspect of the city’s cultural life. Cuba’s second largest city is home to the popular festivals of Carnaval and the Fiesta del Fuego, as well as to many of the country’s most famed musicians and artists and some of its most visited historic sites.
The coastal city of Cienfuegos, the center of Cuba’s sugar, tobacco, and coffee trades, is known to Cubans as the Pearl of the South. Near the entrance to the city’s spectacular natural bay stands the great stone fortress of Castillo de Jagua, built in 1745 to protect the city against pirate attacks.
