THE LATEST CARNIVAL BRAND IS CALLED FATHOM. THIS IS A SMALLER SIZED SHIP WITH A DIFFERENT PURPOSE. IT IS ALL ABOUT SOCIAL IMPACT OR INOVATION IN ACTION. TRAVELERS MAY PARTICIPATE IN ACTIVITIES DESIGNED TO HELP POORER COUNTRIES IN THE AREAS OF ENVIRONMENT AND  EDUCATION AS WELL AS IMPROVING THEIR LIVES. SOCIAL INTERACTION WITH THE PEOPLE YOU ARE HELPING IS ALSO PART OF THE PROGRAM. I WILL EXPLAIN MORE IN THE FOLLOWING DAYS ABOUT THIS WORTHWHILE EFFORT. BEING A FATHOM TRAVELER IS DESIGNED TO BE A TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH CONNECTING TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WITH AN OPEN HEART AND MIND. FATHOM TRAVELERS ARE GIVEN INSIGHTS INTO THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITIES VISITED. SOCIAL INNOVATION IS SIMPLY TAKING ACTION TO RESPOND TO THE PRESSING PROBLEMS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. THROUGH TASK SUCH AS PORING CEMENT FLOORS IN HOMES WITH DIRT FLOORS, PLANTING TREES, TEACHING ENGLISH AND HELPING RE-CYCLE PAPER ARE A FEW OF THE PROJECTS IMPACT TRAVELERS PARTICIPATE IN.
