The 2017 Solar Eclipse cruise aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Oasis of the Seas was a once in a lifetime dream experience for many and certainly, it was a bucket list experience. Cruising during a solar eclipse was an experience like no other.  Protective eyeglasses in place, passengers and crew listened to Bonnie Tyler and DNCE perform Total Eclipse Of The Heart as the sun disappeared above the majestic cruise ship.

Total Eclipse of the Heart” is a song recorded by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler. It was written and produced by Jim Steinman, and released on Tyler’s fifth studio album, Faster Than the Speed of Night (1983). The song was released as a single by Columbia Records on February 11, 1983 in the United Kingdom and on May 31, 1983 in the United States.

Oasis of the Seas left Port Canaveral, Florida on Sunday August 20 for a seven-night Caribbean solar eclipse cruise. Oasis was in port at Nassau, Bahamas from 8:30 to 3:00, then sailed onto Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas and Philipsburg St. Maarten before returning to Port Canaveral.
