|Why fathom? |
Let's fathom (contemplate) why a measure of depth (a fathom)
is a great name for a cruise line focused on social impact!

The adventure begins in Spring 2016 with separate round-trip voyages from Miami to two of the Caribbean’s most desired destinations: the Dominican Republic and Cuba. In the Dominican Republic, you’ll have the opportunity to work side by side with local residents in existing programs that focus on improving the lives of children, families and communities. In Cuba, you’ll participate in an ongoing cultural exchange program that gives you the opportunity to interact with the Cuban people, one on one.I can tell you from personal experience that you will receive more enrichment than those that you are helping...and they will truly appreciate your help. Isn't that awesome? Imagine the "impact" that can have on your children or grandchildren?
Imagine how differently your children and grandchildren will look not only at the world, but you?
By the way, fathom doesn't just dump you shoreside. Your experience starts onboard with lectures and training with workshops and activities. You can even learn some Spanish!. But you also have time for the pool, yoga and a host of other fun activities. To be sure, the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it...but you get to decide how much! (Even if you are taking this trip for your grandchildren - who have to be at least 8 years old - you can sit poolside while they delve into the world of social impact.)
Here is the general scheme for your Cuba cruise:
Getting a bit more specific, but focusing on the other destination (I can't put all the information in one article!) your projects in the Dominican Republic may include assisting people improve their speaking English (so they can get jobs in the tourism industry, etc.), assisting with reforestation or distributing water filtration systems. How about working in a cooperative for chocolate production or arts & crafts? Assisting with new home construction or special needs individuals? The possibilities that are being developed by fathom in advance of your visit are truly diverse.
But is it all serious? Absolutely not. That is the entire point! You may well have the ability to play baseball with some of the local children. Oh, you don't want to play baseball? You can be a waterboy! You don't know what a waterboy is? They'll teach you! You just want to watch and laugh? That's cool too!
And, when your time in port is finished and you are sailing back to Miami you can sit back, with a smile, enjoy your time at sea and say, "I not only did something for others, I really did something for myself (and, possibly, even my family.)"
