When I think of Oprah, I think self-help, not political. I don't think the purpose of these cruises is to launch a campaign.
I am not an Oprah fan but don't understand the nasty comments .
I must be one of the exception to all of you that are opposed to an Oprah themed cruise. My political leanings are not aligned with Oprah but I booked on one of her cruises intentionally after hearing about her themed cruises.
I'm a frequent cruiser and have cruised on Holland American Line in the past but currently I mainly cruise on RCCL. Maybe if I didn't cruise so often I wouldn't want to share my time with enrichment lectures while vacationing, but I do cruise often and I think this will add another dimension to my upcoming trip.
BTW I won't cruise with the Oprah themed cruise until March 2018.
We are also looking at this cruise . If I was convinced it was not
going to be a Oprah love-in with hordes of her followers ,we would probably book. Extra enrichment options that we could take or leave would be a good thing . Prices are good .
