|Princess Cruises and Fathom Travel Add Impact Sailings to Caribbean|
After a successful inaugural sailing in January, six more sailings will give guests opportunity to come alongside locals to make difference in their lives
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (March 1, 2018) – Princess Cruises and Fathom Travel – two of 10 leading brands from Carnival Corporation, the world's largest cruise company (NYSE/LSE: CCL; NYSE: CUK) – have announced six additional impact sailings, now to be known as Travel Deep sailings, in 2018 to the Caribbean. The new voyages follow a highly successful inaugural sailing in January onboard Crown Princess with more than 150 guests joining locals for in-depth immersion into island life, a connection with local communities, a donation drop, and community care, making a tangible difference in their lives.
These unique group opportunities allow Princess Cruises guests to make an impact while traveling and provide assistance and support to local communities in a variety of ways such as on-shore opportunities to deeply connect with those living on the islands of the Caribbean, and to realize the rewards of lending a helping hand to those in need. Due to the success of the first group sailing onboard Crown Princess, the following six additional dates have been added aboard seven-day Princess Cruises Caribbean cruises:
"These additional Travel Deep group sailings allow us to offer our Princess Cruises guests more opportunities to make an impact within the communities in need while adding meaning and a deeper connection during their travels," said Tara Russell, Fathom president and Carnival Corporation global impact lead. "These purpose-driven groups allow travelers to get closer to the places we visit with a chance to come alongside local communities and have more authentic, immersive experiences with locals."
All Travel Deep group sailings include small group leaders and guides, unique onboard events and activities, as well as on-shore opportunities to deeply connect with those living on the islands of the Caribbean. Once booked, Princess Cruises guests who wish to take part e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to join the group, after which they receive onboard credits and special invitations to Fathom Travel programming.
Highlights of the
inaugural eight-day Crown Princess sailing that visited Antiqua, St. Maarten,
St. Thomas and Amber Cove in January included an in-depth immersion into island
life, a connection with local communities, a donation drop, and community care
– with optional activities including rebuilding, beach clean-up, reforestation
and therapy through arts:
Many of the repairs and aid were funded by donations made at https://www.youcaring.com/puertoplata-991506, where all proceeds went directly to rebuilding the Loma de la Bestia community in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Those who cannot sail but still wish to offer support are encouraged to make donations online.
