Girls Getaway Cruise with Oprah and Gayle

Oprah fan Barbie Horowitz was scrolling through Instagram when she spotted an announcement on the icon's Instagram about a Girls Getaway cruise. She knew she had to take the opportunity to cruise with Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King. So Barbie invited her sister Cheri Frame and sisters-in-law Tracy Solomon and Denise Horowitz to join her. The cruise sold out just a few hours after the announcement was made. The cruise sailed out of Fort Lauderdale and stopped at Half Moon Cay. Throughout the three-day cruise, Oprah and Gayle were both accessible and very friendly to guests. Barbie was thrilled to spot Oprah just a few treadmills down from her at the gym. Pictured are (from left) Cheri Frame, Barbie Horowitz, Gayle King, Tracy Solomon and Denise Horowitz enjoying beach time. Activities throughout the cruise included yoga, meditation, a live band at night and events such as a fashion style show and an interview with Tara Westover, the author of the book Educated. Barbie said her highlight was hearing Oprah speak, particularly in such a small venue. The last night of the cruise was pajama night; a fun video of Oprah passing out tequila shots in her PJs quickly went viral. After the cruise returned to Florida, Oprah christened Holland America Line's Nieuw Statendam with a thousand people in attendance.
