Media mogul Oprah Winfrey set foot in Sitka today. She was ferried here on a Holland America cruise ship with hundreds of loyal fans aboard, seeking adventure and a chance to chat with the queen of daytime television.
The Celebrity Solstice cruise ship will depart three hours earlier than intended today. Instead of leaving at 7 o’clock tonight, it will leave at 4 o’clock this afternoon. The last shuttle from town departs at 3 o’clock.
