Holland America Line Announces O, The Oprah Magazine Curated Programming for July 15 Share the Adventure Cruise to Alaska
Seattle, Wash., June 22, 2017 — Holland America Line’s upcoming Share the Adventure Cruise to Alaska on July 15 aboard the ms Eurodam will feature tips and advice from Emmy Award winner and O, The Oprah Magazine creative director Adam Glassman. The style guru will host a Love That! presentation sponsored by women’s clothing brand Chico’s that will reveal the latest trends during a fashion show in the Mainstage.
In addition to providing guidance on how to look and feel fabulous, Glassman will provide packing tips for every traveler and answer questions from the audience. Cruisers who wish to purchase the clothing seen in Glassman’s presentation will have the opportunity to do so at the pop-up O Shop on board. Additionally, jewelry brand Roberto Coin will host a trunk show on board.
"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. "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."
Glassman’s Love That! presentation is just one of many highlights during the Share the Adventure Cruise. O, The Oprah Magazine Editor-at-Large Gayle King and Editor-in-Chief Lucy Kaylin will present 'The Making of O', a behind-the-scenes look at how the publication makes the journey from rough concepts to the newsstand and mailboxes each month. O, The Oprah Magazine Books Editor Leigh Haber and #1 New York Times bestselling author and Pulitzer Prize winner Elizabeth Strout will kick off O’s Reading Room, an on-board book club for passengers, with Strout’s latest release, "Anything is Possible," currently available in bookstores and online.
SuperSoul 100 members including Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter India.Arie; fitness evangelist Angela M. Davis; and author, activist and motivational speaker Glennon Doyle will share inspirational ideas for living one’s best life.
A Let’s Eat! presentation, hosted by Elettra Wiedemann, author and founder of Impatient Foodie, will provide tips for healthy eating while on the ship, and the morning Just Breathe program will help guests greet each day with meaningful meditations and daily intentions.
In addition, A Conversation with Oprah will feature Oprah as she takes the stage for a special evening event. All guests must make reservations using their booking number to attend one of the two presentations prior to boarding the ship.
