On January 30th, Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King will set sail for the Bahamas—along with over 2,000 of their best girl friends. The trip lasts for three days, including a visit to private island Half Moon Cay. The Girls’ Getaway cruise celebrates “the special bond between women”. And it just happens to be one day after Oprah’s 65th birthday!
The girls’ trip will take place on the Nieuw Statendam, the latest luxury cruise liner by Holland America Line. The ship, which measures 975 feet and can hold 2,650 guests, has been decorated with exquisite flower arrangements by Dianthus Miami.
In honor of the star, Holland America Line has named Oprah the godmother of the Nieuw Statendam. “We are so excited to have Oprah set sail with us again for the “Girls’ Getaway cruise in partnership with “O, The Oprah Magazine”, said the president of Holland America Line, Orlando Ashford. “We’re deeply honored that she will serve as godmother of Nieuw Statendam.”
During the cruise, passengers will enjoy a range of activities, from “Conversations with Oprah” to a book club and fashion advice sessions. The “Just Breathe” activity, with guided movement and meditation, will be held poolside, surrounded by the beautiful scents and colors of the floral arrangements.
Before the Nieuw Statendam leaves her berth at Fort Lauderdale and sets sail, the artists at Dianthus will fill the cruise liner with flowers from bow to stern. With over 22 years’ experience, they are more than ready for the job. Dianthus already makes daily floral deliveries to more than 30 cruise ships worldwide—so the Nieuw Statendam will fit right in!
