When Oprah steps aboard Holland America Line’s Eurodam in Alaska on its July 15th sailing, it will have additional programming to be excited about.

Not only will Oprah herself be on hand for a Q&A, but the Share the Adventure Cruise will also feature O, The Oprah Magazine’s creative director Adam Glassman giving tips and advice.

“Adam is a pioneer in the magazine and fashion industries, and to be able to give our guests access to someone with his prominence is a rare opportunity that we know will leave a deep and lasting impression,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line, in a press release.

“The Share the Adventure Cruise is going to inspire our guests, whether it’s gaining a new style sense on the outside or a deeper sense of well-being on the inside. Every activity developed in partnership with O, The Oprah Magazine is designed to make a meaningful connection, and for many that means both looking and feeling good.”

Emmy Award winner and style guru Glassman will specifically present “Love That!” sponsored by Chico’s, showcasing the latest in design with a Mainstage fashion show. He will also provide suggestions on how to look and feel your best as well as pack efficiently for travel and answer audience questions.

Featured clothing will be available for purchase at a pop-up O Shop, and jewelry brand Roberto Coin will have a trunk show on the ship.

Of course, “A Conversation with Oprah” will be a two-presentation evening highlight as Oprah is featured on stage. Before boarding, guests are required to make reservations with their booking number to attend one of the presentations.

Additionally, O, The Oprah Magazine Editor-at-Large Gayle King and Editor-in-Chief Lucy Kaylin will host “The Making of O” for a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the magazine’s publication process from concept to print.

O, The Oprah Magazine Books Editor Leigh Haber and #1 New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout will also introduce O’s Reading Room onboard book club. In the spotlight will be Strout’s newest, “Anything is Possible.”

Plus, Elettra Wiedemann, author and founder of Impatient Foodie, will present “Let’s Eat!” with healthy shipboard eating tips, and “Just Breathe” will lead morning meditations and daily intentions.

Lastly, SuperSoul 100 members like Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter India.Arie, fitness evangelist Angela M. Davis and author, activist and motivational speaker Glennon Doyle will also inspire guests’ lives.

Holland America Line’s partnership with O, The Oprah Magazine extends beyond the special July 15th cruise with to-be-announced SuperSoul 100 members and O Magazine activities featured on four other Adventure of Your Life departures: November 29, 2017, 11-day Caribbean; March 3, 2018, seven-day Caribbean; August 11, 2018, seven-day Alaska and October 28, 2018, seven-day Caribbean.

Programming from the magazine will additionally be showcased on over 300 Holland America Line voyages cruising in North America from August 2017 through 2018.

The seven-day Alaskan Share the Adventure cruise on July 15, 2017, begins at $999 per person, double occupancy.
