Oprah Winfrey Named Godmother of Nieuw Statendam

We are deeply honored that Oprah Winfrey will serve as godmother of Nieuw Statendam. Choosing a godmother for a new vessel is a time-honored maritime tradition that is thought to bring good luck and protection to the ship and all who sail on board. The official dedication will take place in a private ceremony. Please note: The dedication ceremony is not part of the girls' getaway cruise.

Guests on board will discover details that are artfully inspired and perfectly presented. Whether it's a specially curated work of art, the arrival of an exquisite meal or the sophisticated surroundings in every stateroom.

Meet the Artists

Jason Krugman

Sometimes an artist must devise new materials to bring an artistic vision to life. Jason has done exactly that, using hand-made, low-voltage LED lights to create meditations on the nature of light and how it affects our perspective.

Sandra Spannan

Consider the endless possibilities of glass. Using silkscreened, marine-inspired designs and 22k Florentine gold-infused gelatin water to create an antique mirrored surface, Sandra manipulates glass panels into dynamic works of art.

David Leventi

Inspired by his grandfather’s dreams of performing, David created a series of 50 photographs, shot from the singers’ perspective, in the world’s most iconic opera houses. He used a large-format camera and extremely long exposure.

O, The Oprah Magazine Partnership

Holland America Line and Oprah Magazine have partnered to pair the eye-opening wonder of travel with the soulful, inspiring content found in every issue of the magazine.
