Oasis of the Seas TOTALITY event with Bonnie Tyler!
According to surveys yesterday the forecast was for 1 in 2 people in Northern America would actively go outside and experience the once-in-a-lifetime TOTAL ECLIPSE! An event that brought out slightly more people than the 2016 Presidential Election!
Things were a little different out in the Atlantic Ocean however – aboard Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas – pretty much all of the 5,400 passengers and 2,394 crew were out on deck or balconies enjoying a special live concert by Bonnie Tyler and witnessing the total eclipse under bright blue skies.
It wasn’t a mere coincidence either, behind the scenes Royal Caribbean’s Chief Meteorologist James Van Fleet and Oasis of the Seas Captain Per Kristoffersen collaborated to navigate toward the path of totality for the Great American Eclipse – a celestial phenomenon 99 years in the making.
In addition to the viewing party, guests on Oasis of the Seas were delighted with other eclipse-themed activities, including interactive science fun with YouTube star and science communicator Kevin Lieber, dance parties and tasty cocktails.
To celebrate this historic event at sea onboard one of the largest ships in the world, Bonnie Tyler joined DNCE in performing her iconic 80s power ballad, “Total Eclipse of the Heart.”
