Multi-platinum selling band DNCE will headline at Royal Caribbean International’s solar eclipse viewing party, which will take place onboard Oasis of the Seas’ ‘Total Eclipse Cruise’ this August.

DNCE and a ‘surprise guest’ will give a live musical performance on 21 August, the day a total solar eclipse will cross the US coast-to-coast for the first time in 99 years. Guests will also be able to participate in eclipse-themed activities, including dance parties, trivia, enrichment lectures and interactive science sessions.

“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 incredibly excited to be coming back onboard 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.”

Departing from Port Canaveral in Florida on 20 August, Oasis of the Seas will take guests to eastern Caribbean destinations such as Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Nassau, Bahamas. The eclipse, which will be the first significant one in the US since 1970, will be visible across the 70-mile band that stretches from Oregon to South Carolina, before passing over the Caribbean Sea.
