Have you heard about Carnival's newest venture called Fanthom?  Beginning April 2016 this 710 passenger ship formerly the Adonis sailing 7-night cruises from Miami will offer passengers the opportunity to work alongside locals  on community projects such as teaching English, working in Agriculture or on Water filtration systems, etc. Carnival hopes that this first ship will be the start of more ships to follow.  Passengers would spend 3 days in the Dominican Republic on a 7-day cruise.  The cruise would run every other week on a Tuesday.  The cost of the cruise would start at $1,540.  Would this be something that you would consider?
