2/27/2019 – Let’s be real, we all want to travel like Oprah. We’re talking VIP tours of Italy, private jets with her adorable dogs and trips with celebrity friends. What’s next? How about cruising with besties on a spectacular new ship – – the one she’s about to become godmother of?
In Saturday’s dedication ceremony, Oprah christened the newest Holland America Line ship Nieuw Statendam (New State-en-dam) and was named its godmother. This special honor follows Oprah, Gayle and friends having just sailed on a three-day Girls’ Getaway Cruise.
The maritime tradition of choosing a godmother for a new vessel dates back more than 4 thousand years and is supposed to bring good luck and protection to the ship and all on board.
We’ll finally learn the truth about how the O!-mazing-half lives and what makes this particular ship so extraordinary.
