CRUISE SHIPS POSITIONING FOR SOLAR ECLIPSE

A total eclipse of the sun will occur Feb. 26 in the Caribbean, and cruise lines are taking advantage of the phenomenon by positioning their ships within the area of totality. Most of the cruises will have astronomers or other authorities on board to offer space-related programs.

Among the ships expected to be on hand: Cunard's Vistafjord, (800) 528-6273; three Holland America Line ships, (800) 426-0327; Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Sea, (800) 327-7030; Princess Cruises' Dawn Princess, (800) 421-1700; Radisson Seven Seas and Diamond, (800) 333-3333, and Royal Olympic's Stella Solaris, (800) 872-6400. In addition, Tropical Adventures, (800) 595-1003, has chartered several Windjammer Barefoot Cruises vessels.
