Fathom speculation.

12 posts in this topic

Speculation has started regarding the Fathom business idea, with subtle alterations to the concept and price reductions indicating a less than enthusiastic response from the public than was envisaged (assuming Carnival had some positive market research).

I doubt that P&O will get to see Adonia again, more likely the ship would be quietly sold with possibly a name change included in the sale contract. Fred Olsen may well be watching on the sidelines.

This is an article I found on the subject. Is 'voluntourism' cruise line Fathom struggling to sell concept to customers?

 

Would P&O want Adonia back? I don't think so. It is small and expensive to run and would not probably fit in with their vision of attracting new, younger cruisers. Yes, some of the Adonia 'fans' would welcome her back but in the greater scheme of things they are I believe in a very small minority. Just my personal opinion as always. ;)

I think Fred's would LOVE Adonia, but I get the feeling they won't be getting her....

 

Personally I can't 'Fathom' this 'Fathom' idea out. It's the most awkward departure for a cruise line... essentially paying to stay in 4/5 star luxury then trot off to 'help' the impoverished. Doesn't sit well with me at all.

Its a bit like when a person goes and volunteers overseas and has to pay for their flights and accommodation, yet many do it and maybe this is where the idea emanated from.

Good evening wheels36 and firstly a Happy New Year to you.

The post you have quoted is not mine so not sure what to make of your post. wink.png

A happy new year to you too OWT.

I think that if I cannot manage to hit the correct quote button I should probably be looking to cut down on the vino this year.
