We plan to do something special on board with our book club," longtime Winfrey friend and O, The Oprah Magazine editor at large Gayle King said Thursday at an event at Hearst Headquarters in New York to announce the partnership. "It's no secret to anyone in this room how much Oprah loves books."
King, who also will be on the sailing, said such Winfrey-inspired activities as morning meditation and stretching also would be on the agenda along with a behind-the-scenes look at O, The Oprah Magazine.
"It's actually on her bucket list, so she is very excited about this," King said.
The partnership will bring four more magazine-themed cruises over the next two years that are being called O, The Oprah Magazine Adventure of Your Life sailings. In addition to magazine-inspired activities, the trips will be headlined by members of Winfrey's SuperSoul 100, a list of authors, artists, entrepreneurs and other people Winfrey finds inspirational.
