On Tuesday, Carnival Corporation formally announced its full pricing structure for Fathom’s seven-day voyages to the Dominican Republic and Cuba.
The Fathom brand is unique from other cruise lines in that it places emphasis on "voluntourism," catering to, in the words of Carnival Corp. CEO Arnold Donald, "a growing market of consumers who want to have a positive impact on people’s lives, and aren’t always sure where to begin."
To streamline the pricing framework, Fathom broke the fare options into four main categories based on stateroom type, including interior, ocean view, balcony and suite. Additionally, the company also made pricing for single, double and triple occupancy more competitive.
Fathom president Tara Russell released a statement about the new pricing structure:
“Travel pricing can be complicated, so we have taken a straightforward, transparent approach to pricing Fathom experiences, condensing the number of fare categories and breaking down pricing by occupancy and season. Impact travel experiences historically have been limited, hard to identify, and complex to piece together and schedule. Our pricing philosophy is consistent with our goal of simplifying the entire experience – Fathom offers an accessible, convenient and high-value offering that is easy to book and competitively priced.”
To make the trip to the Dominican Republic, prices start at $974 per person. The costs of fares vary due to the time of the year, with low season cruises departing on Sept. 11 and 25, shoulder season voyages on April 10, 17, 24, May 8, 22, and Aug. 28, and peak season departures on June 5, 19, July 3, 17, 31 and Aug. 14.
