Royal Caribbean is offering guests a chance to view the historic Total Solar Eclipse, a once in a lifetime event.

The once in a lifetime “Great American Eclipse” will not be missed by guests sailing on Royal Caribbeans Oasis of the Seas. The cruise line will offer guests a chance to capture that American Eclipse which only occurs every 99 years! Royal Caribbean will sail a one-time special 7-night Caribbean sailing and Oasis of the Seas will sail to an optical spot at sea so guests can capture the moment.

Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International, said:

“We’re set to take vacationers on an unprecedented experience that is nearly a century in the making.” “A total solar eclipse hasn’t crossed the entire U.S. since 1918, and with many of our ships sailing 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 adventurers won’t want to miss.”

The Total Eclipse will occur on August 21, 2017, and during the 7-night voyage, guests will be able to enjoy a host of events and activities to celebrate the historic event. The Total Eclipse Cruise will even feature and huge onboard concert with a yet to be revealed headliner.

The optimal viewing area along the eclipse’s path stretches across the country from Oregon to South Carolina before passing over the Caribbean Sea. On this trajectory, the sun will be entirely covered by the moon, and a moment this unique deserves an equally impressive experience.

The 7-night Total Eclipse Cruise onboard Oasis of the Seas will set sail on Aug. 20, 2017, from Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida and visit Eastern Caribbean destinations: Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas;  and Nassau, Bahamas.

Seven other Royal Caribbean ships will be in the Caribbean during the total solar eclipse on Aug. 21, on itineraries ranging from 3 to 9 nights, offering guests extraordinary partial views of the phenomenon to make for a memorable experience. The seven ships are Allure of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, Empress of the Seas, Enchantment of the Seas, Grandeur of the Seas, Harmony of the Seas and Majesty of the Seas.
