Booking your cabin – Recall dates:

Escapees can only hold the group space for a limited time before the cruise line recalls our unassigned cabins. After the recall date, Escapees may not be able to secure a cabin and if we can, it will not be at the rates listed here.

 

This cruise to Cuba will sell out quickly, so it’s very critical that you book early, even if the cruise is scheduled for NEXT YEAR! Once the recall dates have passed, it will be harder to get a cabin, if one is left.

August 11, 2016

September 10, 2016

Hi Chuck,

 

Thanks for your post!

 

Once the cruise line releases the prices, (this week) I will post them on this forum and the Escapees HOPs webpage at: https://www.escapees.com/fun/hops under the Cuba Cruise.

 

Since this cruise is with the Fathom cruise lines, it works differently than we are accustomed too, when it comes to cruising. The Cuba cruises are selling out quickly, so Fathom allows us to put money down to secure a cabin.

 

Have a good day.

Thanks Lisa, we're signed up !

 

Edit: The Adonis was previously running very formal cruises, which I REALLY wasn't looking forward to, so I sent Fathom an email....here's their response.

 

Dear Dave,

 

Thank you for contacting Fathom.

 

Our trips ave very active when on the ground in the destinations so we have chosen to keep a relaxed atmosphere on board the ship. There will be no formal dining and we will keep to resort casual setting. While there is no formal dining we will still require individuals to be fully dressed (no swimwear).
