“A total solar eclipse hasn’t crossed the entire U.S. since 1918, and with many of our ships sailing to the Caribbean along the projected path, the stars aligned. Oasis of the Seas will have the vantage point of the century and an unforgettable celebration out at sea that travellers won’t want to miss.”
So says Michael Bayley, President and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, touting the cruise line’s bucket list, seven-night Caribbean sailing on Oasis of the Seas, which will cruise to the optimal spot at sea for guests to witness the total solar eclipse on 21 August 2017.
The best viewing area along the eclipse’s path stretches across the US from Oregon to South Carolina before passing over the Atlantic Ocean. On this trajectory, the sun will be entirely covered by the moon. Guests on Oasis of the Seas will be treated to eclipse-themed activities, including dance parties, trivia, enrichment lectures, interactive science fun for kids, and themed cocktails and menus to commemorate the ‘Great American Eclipse’ – 99 years in the making.
The Total Eclipse Cruise will also include a live concert performed by a major headliner – to be revealed at a later date – to celebrate the eclipse.
“We’re set to take guests on an unprecedented experience that is nearly a century in the making,” Bayley added.
