Is Impact Travel for you?
A 7-Day Fathom™ cruise may be the most memorable journey you’ll ever take. Combine your love of fun and adventure with your desire to give back by tutoring students in English, making water filters that bring clean water into Dominican homes, replacing dirt floors with concrete floors in the homes of needy families, all while enjoying the beauty and historical sites of Puerto Plata.
The more you give, the more you’ll receive, and no vacation makes giving more fun and rewarding than a Fathom™ cruise.
There’s a reason the Dominican Republic is by far the most popular destination in the Caribbean. In fact, there isn’t just one reason; there are dozens of them. Powder-white beaches and high mountain waterfalls. Outdoor adventures and excursions. The eclectic mix of Colonial architecture and traditional Caribbean culture. Evenings of dining on local specialties and dancing to infectious island rhythms, as the sun sets low over the sea and the friendly Dominican people extend you a genuine “Bienvenido.” Welcome. So bring along your intentions, your commitment, and your desire to make a difference. But, whatever you do, don’t forget to bring along your sense of adventure.
Almost from the moment you step on board your ship in Miami, you’ll realize that a Fathom™ voyage is anything but travel as usual. Yes, of course you’ll have leisure moments, creature comforts and time for recreation. But, during your time at sea, you’ll also be focused on building a community with your fellow travelers, as you participate in on-board activities designed specifically to prepare you for your on-ground impact experience.
Once your ship docks in Amber Cove, you’ll put all that preparation to good use. During your time on the ground, you’ll work alongside local community members on carefully chosen projects focused on improving educational, environmental, and economic conditions in the Dominican Republic.
Your ship sails from Miami on Sunday afternoon and will serve as a comfortable home base throughout your journey. You’ll spend Monday at sea before arriving in the Dominican Republic around midday on Tuesday. For the next three days, you’ll work alongside local people on projects that serve local community needs. On Friday afternoon, you’ll begin your return voyage to Miami.
As you travel from Miami to the Dominican Republic, on-board orientation and training will prepare you for the varied activities waiting for you onshore. During your outbound voyage, you’ll also feast on Dominican-inspired cuisine, get to know your fellow travelers, and have plenty of free time for relaxing and recharging.
Within obvious limits, your on-ground experience can be almost anything you want it to be. Maybe you’ll choose to help a community gain access to clean water. Or to work alongside local women to start or maintain a cottage industry. Or to make a contribution to local reforestation efforts. What you choose to do will depend, in large part, on your passions, your interests, and your skills. And on what, inside your soul, is the cause that matters most to you.
