Dominican RepublicAlmost 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.

Or, you might simply decide to sail as a Traditional Crusie and do what you want, go where you want, and do what you want.  Withing reason of course!

nt, and do what you want.  Withing reason of course!


JULY 2, 2017 – JULY 9, 2017


This trip spends 3 days at sea and 3 days overnight in the Dominican Republic.

Let’s talk about IMPACT CRUSING FIRST!

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.

On the island, a variety of impact activities will allow you to harness your own particular skills and passions to make the most meaningful contribution during your time onshore. And, although this calendar and sample days are typical of your week’s itinerary, you’ll soon discover that there’s nothing typical about this experience at all.

Above is just a sample of IMPACT CRUISING.  If you sign up for this option, you can do as little and as much as you want.

As your ship makes its way to Amber Cove, you’ll prepare for your on-ground experience with a variety of on-board activities that include orientation to the Dominican Republic, impact education, and impact activity training. And you’ll have the opportunity to connect with your fellow travelers as you share your collective visions for your journey.

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.

NOW, Less talking about TRADITIONAL CRUSING!
Basically, you follow your own schedule.  You meet who you want to meet, you go where you want to go, and you do on board activities that you select.  This would be just another exciting cruise to you.
