A Journey Of A Different Kind
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.
Fathom will provide ground transportation for all your impact activities in the Dominican Republic. Transportation for your chosen leisure activities will be at your own expense.

Impact Activities on the Ground
The true value of your Fathom™ voyage will be the opportunity to work alongside the people of the Dominican Republic, helping to make a meaningful contribution to sustainable economic, environmental and educational initiatives in the local communities.

Your time on board will be an adventure, too. A unique experience tailored to prepare you for making the maximum impact during your time on the ground. Your fare includes access to most content, programming and other on-board events. A limited number of on-board events will have an additional fee.
Daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the ship are included, as well as snacks and water during your on-ground impact activities. If you’re feeling adventurous, additional curated dining experiences will be available on the ship at an extra cost.

Option B: Relax on the beach
Bring your towel and head over to one of the sandy beaches where you can rent snorkels, fins, and other watersports equipment. You can also kick back at Amber Cove’s own pool, complete with a lazy river and private cabanas.
