The 710-berth Adonia will join Carnival’s new Fathom brand,” sailing between Miami and Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic

Last week saw the announcement of a new cruise brand from Carnival Corp & plc, called Fathom, with word that it will be assigned P&O Cruises’ Adonia to sail weekly from Miami. As the new Fathom ship, she will spend three days each week at Carnival’s new cruise terminal at Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic while her passengers engage in “social impact activities” ashore such as teaching English in schools, helping to cultivate cacao plants and building water filtration systems. Elsewhere, UK-based The River Cruise Line has chartered a new flagship, the Serenity, while we also have a look at the Yangtze River cruise trade in light of last week’s local disaster.
