Winfrey will embark on a special three-day Girls’ Getaway cruise aboard the new ship on January 30, 2019, joined by O, The Oprah Magazine Editor-at-Large Gayle King and other members of the magazine’s editorial staff. The voyage will set sail roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale with a day at Half Moon Cay.

Guests on the sailing will be able to attend live conversations with Oprah, as well as other sessions with the magazine’s staff, such as styling tips, a book club, meditation classes, and more.
