ECLIPSE April 8, which ships will be watching off the coast of Mexico?

Recommended Posts

On Monday, there's a total eclipse, and I think some cruise ships will be "lurking" off the coast of Mexico, where it is expected to have a high chance of clear skies.


Is there a list of those ships, at least the "big ones"?  I suppose there will be a bunch of smaller ones, too.


Could we list the "cruise ships" that are expected to be in the area?

According to Cruisetimetables,  the Zaandam will be in Mazatlan

We will be at sea during the Eclipse, may dock afterwards. 


Koningsdam will also be in the area.

So... what reports from the ships in the Totality area off Mexico?

Was the sky clear?


We flew to Montreal, changing plans at almost the last minute (well, 2 days) when the weather reports showed our initial plans weren't going to work so well.


And yes, TOTALITY!

And totally worth it!

There were some high thin clouds, but not enough to impact the view. All the ships started 20 or 30 miles west of their planned locations for best viewing. After the rearranging, on Zaandam,  our conditions were excellent. 4:20 of totality, only 7 seconds less than predicted.
