Let’s be real: We all want to travel like Oprah. We're talking VIP tours of Italy, private jet time with her adorable dog, royal engagements in England, Disney trips with celebrity friends, and even that time she covered a hotel room in money just to brighten a housekeeper's day. Up next? Cruising.

Earlier this month, Holland America announced its partnership with O, The Oprah Magazine for a three-day women-only cruise event starting on Jan. 30, 2019.

Taking place on the cruise company’s newest ship, Nieuw Statendam, Oprah herself will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She will of course be joined by her lifelong best friend (and O, The Oprah Magazine’s editor-at-large) Gayle King, along with key members of the magazine’s staff.

On board, the group will host presentations and special events for guests, including three different life “conversations with Oprah.” Meaning cruise-goers really will have the chance to rub elbows with the TV queen herself.
How Oprah Made Her Billions Oprah's long and successful career has her set for life.

During the brief cruise, which will head to Holland America’s private island in the Bahamas, guests can also attend events like “Love That!,” a style session with the magazine’s creative director Adam Glassman. According to Travel Agent Central, during that event Glassman will share his secrets for “essential pieces that everyone needs in their wardrobe.”

Or, guests can choose to attend “O’s Reading Room” with the magazine’s books editor, Leigh Haber. There, Haber will lead a discussion on Oprah’s Book Club’s latest selection.

This is all in celebration of the fact that Oprah was named the godmother of the ship. She will even christen the new vessel before it heads out to sea at a private event, taking part in a centuries-old tradition that is meant to bring good luck to the ship as it sets sail. Oprah’s name will then forever be associated with the new boat, and really, what could bring more luck than that?

"Oprah has done it all. She's an actress, author, and philanthropist and we thought, 'Why not make her the ship's Godmother?'” Jayne Jamison, senior vice president, publisher, and chief revenue officer of O, The Oprah Magazine, toldForbes.

Sadly, the cruise Oprah herself will be on is sold out, however, Holland America will continue to host Oprah-themed cruises, including an August 11, 2018 sail through Alaska and an October 28 seven-day Caribbean sail, where travelers can learn all about how to live their best, Oprah-like lives.
