Come along with Craig Zabransky of StayAdventurous.com as he discovers a new way to experience voluntourism with Fathom Travel, a new Carnival Cruise line.
In this episode we board the mv Adonia, a relatively small ship in today's standards to sail from Miami to the Amber Cove cruise port in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. This cruise has only one stop with days at sea book-ending four nights docked in the Dominican. The adventure includes access to typical cruise excursions and entertainment, but offers much more...it offers a chance for the consumer to give back through impact travel.
Come along and discover the impact made with excursions of teaching Community English, making Water Filters, the Reforestation of the rain forest, and more. Listen in to the interview with one of the on-the-ground specialists working with Fathom on the excursions from Entrena, hear an interview with the Fathom President Tara Russell as she sailed with us on the historic inaugural journey, and catch up with a couple who discovered Fathom travelers are the people they want to know in their life.
The episode leaves you with his top travel tips to assist you when planning your Fathom Travel Cruise and describes the main differences between the Dominican Republic trip and the opportunity to visit Cuba. Also as always Craig provides the staying adventurous mindset moment, a travel takeaway and your souvenir, from his adventure in the Caribbean.
Craig is not an avid cruiser (yet), but has enjoyed a few other adventures at sea. Listeners will discover how this concept and trip really resonated with him too. He describes the details and the impact not just on the DR communities, but also on himself.
