Oprah Steps Onboard Ship For Adventure Of Your Life

Oprah Steps Onboard Ship For Adventure Of Your Life

Holland America Line has just revealed it is bringing a major partner onboard with them.

The line has just partnered with O, The Oprah Magazine to sail five “Adventure of Your Life” sailings.

It will bring O Magazine-inspired activities aboard and offer guests the chance to interact with the magazine’s figureheads and members of its SuperSoul 100 list of leaders, entrepreneurs and influencers “who are using their voices and talent to elevate humanity.”

Oprah Winfrey herself will be onboard for the first sailing to Alaska in March, plus O Magazine’s editor at large Gayle King, editor in chief Lucy Kaylin and creative director Adam Glassman.

I’m so excited to continue 2017 as my Year of Adventure with another bold, new place I’ve never been before: Alaska!” Winfrey revealed in a statement.

The five sailings are scheduled for Nov. 29, 2017, an 11-day Southern Caribbean Wayfarer on Ms Koningsdam; March 3, 2018, a 7-day Eastern Caribbean roundtrip from Ft. Lauderdale on Ms Nieuw Amsterdam; Aug. 11, 2018, a 7-Day Alaska roundtrip from Seattle on Ms Eurodam; and Oct. 28, 2018, a 7-Day Western Caribbean sailing on Ms Nieuw Amsterdam.

Holland America president Orlando Ashford has stated: “The readers of O Magazine and Holland America Line guests have a lot in common. They prefer to collect experiences…they have a strong desire to learn and engage and they seek authenticity, something that’s real and tangible.” 

Besides those five, more than 300 North American sailings throughout 2018 will be integrated with features inspired by the magazine, including movement and tai chi classes, an onboard book club and “Let’s Eat” seminars on healthy eating.

Readers and others will have the chance to earn a free “Adventure of Your Life” sailing by going to the magazine’s website and submitting a written piece on why travel is important to them and how it helps them connect with the world.  

The partnership has been stated by the team as the “most ambitious and most fabulous thing we’ve ever attempted.”
