Unfortunately it’s not, but someone will get a cruise, Oprah!

The entrepreneur, philanthropist, former talk show host and media mogul is heading out to sea with Holland America as part of O, The Oprah Magazine‘s inaugural cruise feature. 

‘Share the Adventure Cruise’ sets sail to Alaska this July with the household name sailing onboard along with the magazine’s editor at large Gayle King and others from the O team.

The cruise will include an exclusive program developed with the magazine’s editors such as talks from members of the SuperSoul 100 – thought leaders and visionaries who use their talents to elevate humanity. There’ll also be a variety of engaging activities that bring the magazine to life including meditation, tai chi, healthy cooking demonstrations and an onboard book club.

Following the initial sailing, Holland America will host four additional  O, The Oprah Magazine ‘Adventure of Your Life’ sailings featuring similar O Magazine-inspired activities.

Holland America’s President Orlando Ashford said the line is “honoured” to partner with Oprah and further the “shared belief that travel and wellness have the power to open minds, build connections and inspire shared humanity”.

“Our commitment to providing authentic experiences for our guests is at the forefront of all we do, and this collaboration is going to empower our guests in a whole new way with thought-provoking and enriching activities and content developed together with the experts at O, The Oprah Magazine.”

Here’s the good part, while it won’t be a whole audience of free cruises handed out, the magazine is giving three readers to chance to win (North America entrants only) a spot on the inaugural cruise to Alaska with Oprah and Gayle.
