Royal Caribbean is offering the perfect solution for thrill seekers to experience a once-in-a-lifetime event: the total solar eclipse, August 2017.
The “Great American Eclipse,” 99 years in the making, is already booking up hotels across the country and Royal Caribbean is hosting an out-of-this-world, 7-night Caribbean sailing on Oasis of the Seas.
The cruise will take guests to the optimal spot at sea for guests to witness the total solar eclipse on August 21st 2017, a celestial phenomenon that is poised to become the most photographed, most shared and most tweeted event in human history.
Taking place on one of the world’s largest and most adventure-packed ships, it will feature a bucket-list-worthy viewing party with a live concert performed by a major headliner, yet to be revealed at a later date.
“We’re set to take vacationers on an unprecedented experience that is nearly a century in the making,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.
“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 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 Royal understand this to be a moment so unique that it deserves an equally impressive experience.
During the adventure to idyllic islands in the Caribbean, guests on Oasis will be treated to a full range of eclipse-themed activities, including dance parties, trivia, enrichment lectures, interactive science fun for kids, and tasty cocktails and dishes with names like the Cosmic Cosmo, Planetary Punch and Moon Pie, ensuring the most memorable and adventurous way to commemorate the Great American Eclipse.
In addition to celebrating this historic event on board one of the largest cruise ships in the world, passengers will also enjoy the ship’s bold and unexpected lineup of experiences and amenities.
From two FlowRider surf simulators and a zip line nine decks high – speeding riders 82 feet across an open-air atrium, to unparalleled entertainment, including Broadway’s hit musical CATS and high-diving, acrobatic performances in the iconic AquaTheater; and world-class dining, featuring a six-course seasonal menu at 150 Central Park by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz, there is an adventure for travellers of all ages aboard Oasis of the Seas.
The 7-night Total Eclipse Cruise will set sail on August 20th 2017 from Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida and visit Eastern Caribbean destinations: Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Nassau, Bahamas.
