SETTING SAIL

For Oprah's last "My Favorite Things" episode in 2010 – dubbed the star's "Ultimate Favorite Things" – the talk-show host again gifted her audience members with a new car: the 2012 Volkswagen Beetle.

Guests also received a seven-day stay aboard Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas cruise ship and round-trip United Airline flights to and from the departing port. "Cruising, of course, is one of my favorite things," she said on air. "And you are going to have the time of your lives." ROLL OVER photo to reveal more!
