Cosmos Tours & Cruises claims to be the first UK operator to package cruises by social impact brand Fathom to the Dominican Republic.

The move follows the Carnival Corporation one-ship business moving to actively sell through the trade in the UK

The Cosmos Tours packages include return flights to Miami, a three night pre-cruise stay at the Aloft Hotel South Beach, local excursions in Miami, seven night cruise on revamped P&O Cruises’ ship Adonia to Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic with social impact travel activities and overseas transfers included.

Departures run fortnightly throughout August to November 2016 with 2017 departures due on sale shortly. Prices lead in at £1,675 per person in August.

Cosmos Tours’ chief executive Giles Hawke said: “We are delighted to be the first UK operator to offer customers the opportunity of giving back to local communities in the Dominican Republic by taking part in this incredible and worthwhile travel experience.

“Agents can suggest the experience to adventurous customers wanting to make a difference and learn about a different culture as well as enjoying a relaxing cruise experience with everything taken care of.”
