The multi-platinum selling band DNCE will be on board Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas for a live musical performance to celebrate to the Great American Eclipse, a natural phenomenon 99 years in the making. On 21 August 2017 DNCE will headline Royal Caribbean’s bucket-list-worthy solar eclipse viewing party with a surprise guest for an out-of-this-world performance aboard the exclusive 7-night Total Eclipse Cruise.
The 7-night Total Eclipse Cruise will set sail on Aug. 20, 2017 from Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida, and visit Caribbean destinations in the Eastern Caribbean, including Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Nassau, The Bahamas.
Oasis of the Seas will position itself along the eclipse’s path of totality where the moon completely masks the sun for a few minutes of total darkness, giving adventure-seekers the perfect vantage point of the century. Building up to the unprecedented moment at sea, DNCE frontman Joe Jonas and all-star bandmates, including bassist and keyboardist Cole Whittle, guitarist JinJoo and drummer Jack Lawless, will perform the band’s heart-pumping hits like “Kissing Strangers,” “Body Moves” and, “Cake by the Ocean.”
“When we were invited to headline this once-in-a-lifetime event, we didn’t think twice. What could be more out of this world than witnessing a full solar eclipse at sea? ” said Joe Jonas. “We’re stoked about coming back on board with Royal Caribbean to put on a lights-out performance with a very special guest. It’s beyond exciting to be able to celebrate this crazy moment in history out in the middle of the ocean.”
The viewing party will last well into the night, long after the moon eclipses the sun, creating social media-worthy moments for what is predicted to be one of the most trending topics of 2017.
Guests on Oasis of the Seas will be treated to other eclipse-themed activities, including dance parties, trivia, interactive science fun for kids and their families, and tasty cocktails and dishes. Elsewhere, for adventure seekers, there are two FlowRider surf simulators, a zip line nine decks high (speeding riders 82 feet across an open-air atrium), Broadway-style shows and high-diving, acrobatic performances in the iconic AquaTheatre.
