More 2016 Solar Eclipse planning

The total solar eclipse in 2016 is best observed from a moving platform such as a cruise ship. Land based observations will be hampered by travel requirements and the climate which indicates a high potential for clouds on eclipse morning (the only major land fall for this eclipse is near the start of the path).

I am going to be on board the Pride of America, chartered exclusively to see this eclipse. The Pride of America is a Norwegian Cruise Lines ship that normally does week long cruises around the Hawaiian Islands. Due to the proximity of the islands to the eclipse path this is an excellent choice. Details can be found at http://www.eclipse-chasers.com/tse2016/PrideOfAmerica.html
