Princess Cruises is offering a unique opportunity for guests to experience a complete solar eclipse at sea.
The itinerary aboard the Emerald Princess has been altered to allow guests sailing the Mexican Riviera to witness the rare event. The total solar eclipse is one of the three remaining worldwide this decade, and the only one visible from North America until 2044.
On April 8, 2024, the moon’s shadow will be cast across parts of North America, and a view at sea may offer one of the best vantage points.
The cruise departs from Los Angeles on April 5, 2024, sailing to Ft. Lauderdale into the Mexican Riviera, through the Panama Canal, and across the western Caribbean.
The 3,080-passenger Emerald Princess will catch the total solar eclipse on April 8 between Cabo San Lucas and Huatulco, Mexico. The itinerary also includes stops in San Juan del Sur Costa Rica, Cartagena, Grand Cayman, and Ft. Lauderdale.
Guests will be given special glasses to safely view the eclipse on the top decks of the ship. Astronomy and space exploration enthusiast Fred Cink will help guide their viewing experience. Guests will also enjoy specially-themed drinks and bites during the event.
John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises, commented:
“This rare occurrence in the cosmos is sure to wow millions, but only the smallest fraction will ever experience this phenomenon via the ocean aboard an amazing cruise ship. Princess thrives on ensuring our guests have authentic experiences that sometimes become once-in-a-lifetime moments.”
Princess has adjusted its itinerary after selling out the 10-Day Mexican Riviera cruise with Total Solar Eclipse on Discovery Princess.
The cruise line aims to provide guests with authentic experiences that they will cherish for a lifetime. Will you be sailing with Princess Cruises to experience the solar eclipse at sea? Let us know in the comments!
