Carnival newest brand Fathom recently announced their lineup of recreational and leisure activities for passengers to enjoy during their down-time in the Dominican Republic.
Travelers can customize their trips to the DR to include a variety of social impact experiences, including projects focused on environmental, educational, and economic development that match their interests and activity levels. Passengers who want a break from their scheduled activities during their time on the island can simply just relax and take in the country’s landscape; with the beautiful blue water, waterfalls and rainforests, and predictable weather.
- Traditions and Local Flavors – Puerto Plata is home to the first fort built by European settlers in the New World, and is a very scenic spot. Passengers can explore the city and its rich history, shop downtown, and walk along the famous Malecon; a 3-mile beachside boardwalk with lots of shops and restaurants. Travelers can also take a walk through the city and visit the San Felipe Fortress, Cathedral San Felipe, Vrugal rum factory, Plaza Indepencia, and other museums.
