People To People Brings Carnival Paradise To Paradise


Last year, Carnival Corporation’s Fathom brand was the first cruise line to establish a presence in Cuba.  In the process,  Social Impact Travel opened the door to the island nation in a people-to-people sort of way.  To culturally focused travelers, Fathom got them there and that’s all that mattered.  To experienced Caribbean cruise travelers, the cultural exchange requirement was deal breaker, making the one Fathom ship hard to fill at any price. Still, lessons were learned in the trailblazing effort bringing Carnival Paradise to paradise, starting in June.
