MIAMI - Fathom, the pioneer in social impact travel and Carnival Corporation's 10th and newest brand, along with Airbnb, a world-leading community-driven hospitality company, have partnered for a "give and get" opportunity for new Airbnb hosts in the U.S. Beginning today, people who sign up to become a new host with Airbnb will receive a $250 credit for a Fathom cruise to the Dominican Republic or Cuba.
Fathom offers uniquely different round-trip voyages from Miami to embrace what's possible in two of the Caribbean's most desired destinations – the Dominican Republic and Cuba. Fathom's cruises to the Dominican Republic focus on an authentic, enriching and meaningful experience that allows travelers to participate alongside locals to address community needs. Fathom's culturally immersive cruise itinerary in Cuba features experiences in the Cuban port cities of Havana, Cienfuegos, and Santiago de Cuba, exposing travelers to a rich and vibrant culture that until now most U.S. travelers have only seen in photographs.
"We love that Airbnb offers a marketplace of unforgettable experiences curated by their host community all over the world," said Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation. "In many ways, we share that same passion and deliver new memories. Today's consumers want to have unique, immersive experiences, and I'm excited that we can now creatively make this possible even further through this natural partnership."
Today, new Airbnb hosts - who become Fathom travelers - have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact while gaining deep insight into the everyday lives, rich culture and history of both local Dominican and Cuban communities. No matter what cruise travelers choose, Airbnb provides the perfect home, apartment or private room for those who want to live like a Miami local before or after a Fathom cruise to the Dominican Republic or Cuba.
