A Must-Read Before Your Fathom Cruise to Cuba!

Written by Mark McElroy

Make the most of your Fathom Cruise to Cuba!

To help you see more, enjoy more, and cruise to Cuba with greater confidence, I’ve collected all my tips, tricks and secrets in one book: MillionMileMark’s Notes on Your Fathom Cruise to Cuba.

How is This Book Different?

Other guides Cuba offer comprehensive tips on every sight in every port. This book, though, is focused on the Fathom Cuban cruise experience. What’s being aboard the Adonia like? Is dinner in the fancy Ocean Grill worth the $25.00 upcharge? How are the onboard shopping options? Are the workshops and port lectures worth attending? And is that pricey optional tour out to Havana’s Tropicana Cabaret worth it?

In addition, you’ll find detailed critiques of Fathom’s excursions in every port. Should you take the ship’s tours (included with your ticket) or arrange your own? What sights will you see? Will you have enough time to on shore to do all the things you want to do? I answer all these questions and many others with practical, friendly, trustworthy advice that will help you make your own best choices.

In short: reading MillionMileMark’s Notes on Your Fathom Cruise to Cuba is like chatting with me about my adventure … while we work together to plan your own!
