With solar eclipse fever at full blast, the weeklong Total Eclipse Cruise to the eastern Caribbean adds a live performance by Bonnie Tyler, who will belt out “Total Eclipse of the Heart” before the Oasis of the Seas sails into the path of totality.

Tyler will perform her 1983 hit with American rock-dance band DNCE in the ship’s AquaTheater about an hour before the eclipse, a Royal Caribbean International news release says. (Yep, Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers is in DNCE.)

After the eclipse, the cruise will make stops at Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Nassau, Bahamas, before returning to Orlando.

The eclipse will begin around 8:45 a.m. Monday in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Oregon. It will travel across the U.S. A 70-mile-wide band of the country is in the path of totality, that is, places that will experience the darkness of a total solar eclipse.
