    The voyage even comes with NASA-approved glasses for optimal viewing.

    August 21’s total eclipse of the sun (the first to sweep the entire continental U.S. since 1918) is a celestial phenomenon that’s been anticipated by astronomers and travelers alike for years. That’s because if you’re in the path of moon's shadow when it travels between the sun and Earth that day—from the Oregon coast to the Atlantic Ocean by way of South Carolina—you’ll take in a very rare sight. 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.

    Sure, you could head to the Great Smoky Mountains or the Pacific Northwest to check it out, or even book hotels and Airbnbs located right in the line of action. Or you could go all out and see the eclipse from the sea.

    Royal Caribbean has just announced a seven-night ‘Total Eclipse Cruise’ to the Caribbean that will sail through the eclipse’s path on August 21.
