Fathom, Carnival Corp.'s social-impact cruise line, has been given permission to visit Cuba on cruises scheduled to go to the Dominican Republic.

Fathom will offer a port call in Santiago de Cuba, on the island's southeast coast, on six cruises next year that primarily go to Amber Cove, Carnival's port in the Dominican Republic.

The seven-day cruises will take place during the weeks of February 26, March 12 and 26, April 9 and 23, and May 7. Prices start at $599 per person.

The cruises depart Miami on Sundays. Fathom said the Santiago de Cuba port call will occur on Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Travelers already booked for those cruises will need to add a $75 Cuban visa.

Fathom's ship, the Adonia, already sails every other week to Cuba with stops in Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago. Prices for those cruises start at about $1,900 per person.

In November, Carnival Corp. said that Fathom is discontinuing cruise operations next June. The Adonia will be returned to the P&O Cruises fleet.
