*For those of us who didn’t get the memo, from the looks of things Oprah and guests who did had an O-mazing time on the ‘Share the Adventure’ cruise that brought together some of the world’s foremost visionaries for an entire week as they set sail from Seattle to Alaska.
It was a week chock full of talks and activities aboard “ms Eurodam” and along with partners at the Holland America Line, O, The Oprah Magazine, is now sharing the adventure with the rest of us in an array of exclusive photos and video.
Throughout the week guests took part in morning meditation with yoga instructor Sara Ivanhoe and explored eating well with Impatient Foodie founder Elettra Wiedemann.
O, The Oprah Magazine editor in chief Lucy Kaylin and editor at large Gayle King shared a peek behind the scenes of the award-winning magazine, explaining how they bring the pages to life.
Kaylin and books editor Leigh Haber each led conversations with Pulitzer Prize-winner and New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout for the first-ever O’s Reading Room.
After viewing scenic Glacier Bay, Oprah Winfrey took to Eurodam’s Mainstage to host A Conversation with Oprah. Speaking at two full-house engagements, Winfrey shared her journey to success, her self-proclaimed ‘Year of Adventure’ and the desire for this cruise to be the start of something meaningful for those on board.
“We are in the business of trying to expand the way people see themselves and their lives, and that’s what travel does,” explained Winfrey.
“I want it to be more than just a trip. I want it to be the start of something big that started with this adventure of a lifetime that fuels and feeds in a way that is grand and deep and wide,” she added
“The first cruise in our partnership with O, The Oprah Magazine was tremendous; the energy and inspirational atmosphere on Eurodam was felt by all and truly something special,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line.
“The incredible caliber of talent and performances on the Share the Adventure Cruise exceeded expectations, and we leave this week with a lifetime of memories and lessons on how to live your best life.”
The July 15 cruise was the first of several special cruises with Holland America Line and O, The Oprah Magazine. Four additional Adventure of Your Life cruises with SuperSoul 100 Members (to be announced) will set sail as follows:
In addition, more than 300 Holland America Line cruises sailing from North America from August 2017 through 2018 will offer a variety of engaging activities developed with the magazine’s editors and designed to nourish body and soul.
