BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Royal Caribbean is offering a special seven-night ‘Total Eclipse Cruise’ to the Caribbean that will sail through this Summer’s eclipse’s path on August 21.

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

The August 21 total eclipse of the sun, the first to sweep the entire continental U.S. since 1918, is a celestial phenomenon that’s been anticipated for years as the path of moon’s shadow travels between the sun and Earth—from the Oregon coast to the Atlantic Ocean by way of South Carolina.
Day will turn to night and nothing but the outermost part of the sun’s atmosphere, called the corona, will be left shimmering in the sky.
On Aug. 21, millions of people will travel to witness this total solar eclipse.
Being in the right place at the right time is important for viewing a total solar eclipse as it only lasts for a few brief minutes along a narrow path. This is called the path of totality.
The rest of the U.S., including Alaska and Hawaii, will experience a partial solar eclipse.
