2E6A3073

Princess Cruises has added more Caribbean sailings with Fathom Travel, Carnival Corporation’s social impact brand.

The voyages, which are being called ‘Travel Deep’ sailings, will combine a cruise on Princess with the opportunity for guests to give back to the communities they visit, according to a release.

Tara Russell, Fathom president and Carnival Corporation global impact lead, said: “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. These purpose-driven groups allow travellers to get closer to the places we visit with a chance to come alongside local communities and have more authentic, immersive experiences with locals.”

The following seven-day Caribbean cruises have been added:

  • Regal Princess, departing March 18, 2018 (previously announced) – Fort Lauderdale, Princess Cays, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Fort Lauderdale
