Looking for a perfect place to enjoy a complete solar eclipse? The Emerald Princess will give guests sailing the Mexican Riviera in April 2024 the rare opportunity to experience a total solar eclipse at sea.

“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,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.

On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total eclipse lasting as long as 4 minutes 28 seconds will be visible as the moon’s shadow is cast across parts of North America, and a view at sea may very well offer one of the best vantage points.

The total solar eclipse is one of the three remaining worldwide this decade, and the last one visible from North America until 2044.

“Princess thrives on ensuring our guests have authentic experiences that sometimes become once-in-a-lifetime moments,” Padgett said.

Guests will gather on the top decks and be given special glasses they can wear to safely view the eclipse as astronomy and space exploration enthusiast Fred Cink helps guide their viewing experience.

Guests also will enjoy specially-themed drinks and bites during the coveted event.

Princess has adjusted its 15-day ocean-to-ocean Panama Canal cruise aboard Emerald Princess after selling out the 10-day Mexican Riviera cruise with Total Solar Eclipse on Discovery Princess.

During the voyage departing Los Angeles on April 5, 2024, sailing to Fort Lauderdale into the Mexican Riviera through 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 Fort Lauderdale.  The cruise is now on sale with starting rates of $1,699 per person.
