CUL­TURE CLUB: The new vol­un­tourism cruise brand Fathom, launched by P&O Cruises’ par­ent com­pany Car­ni­val Cor­po­ra­tion, of­fers cul­tural cruises to Cuba. The one­week sail­ings from Mi­ami aboard P&O’s Ado­nia call at Ha­vana, Cien­fue­gos and San­ti­ago de Cuba, where pas­sen­gers can im­merse them­selves in “cul­tural ex­change” ac­tiv­i­ties, such as din­ing at a home­based res­tau­rant, vis­it­ing a pri­mary school and meet­ing lo­cal artists and mu­si­cians. Cuban movies, mu­sic and cui­sine ac­com­pany your time aboard. Reg­u­lar sail­ings are of­fered from May to Novem­ber. More: fathom.org.
