{Poll} If money were no object… Which lavish celeb vacation would you take?

Earlier this year, on the premier of the 25th and final season of her eponymous talk show, Oprah Winfrey surprised 300 audience members by announcing she was taking them on an eight-day, all-expenses paid vacation to Australia. But even that epic trip doesn’t hold a candle to some of the more extravagant vacations the FOF daytime queen has taken herself. And Oprah’s not the only FOF star who splurges on over-the-top trips. Read about 4 lavish celeb vacations then decide: Which one would you most want to take?

—————————————————————————————————–

Oprah Winfrey – Necker Island, British Virgin Islands
PRICE: $54,500 – $56,000 per night for up to 28 guests (5 night minimum)


When Oprah wants to live out her Blue Lagoon fantasies she knew exactly where to go: Sir Richard Branson’s 74-acre,  completely private island. There, she and her friends had access to every water sport under the sun, plus a private, high-speed submarine, the Necker Nymph. The 2:1 staff-to-guest ratio makes this island truly fit for royalty, and the Queen of Daytime Television is no exception–while visiting the oasis, she and her “court” were waited on hand-and-foot by the island’s 60 staff members.

Madonna – Christina O Yacht in the Caribbean
PRICE: $64,000 – $93,000 per day

In the 1960s, Aristotle Onassis and Jackie O used this super-yacht as their own floating mansion while entertaining the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Winston Churchill. In 2009, when Madonna chartered a trip, it had long-since been converted to a private playground for celebs at sea. On board, the Material FOF enjoyed Michelin Star cuisine, massages at Six Senses spa, and the legendary pool with mosaic floor – which rises to form a dance floor at the flick of a switch.

Jodie Foster – Hotel Martinez Penthouse Prestige Apartment in Cannes
PRICE: $37,000 per night

For those who like to feel as if they’re living in a 007 movie, consider this palatial penthouse on the French Riviera. When FOF-in-waiting Jodie Foster stays here, she enjoys 24-hour butler service (helpful in case she’s in the master bedroom and too tired to walk all the way to the kitchen for a snack – the suite is, after all, 2,000 square-feet). Should she work up a sweat visiting the linen closet, she can rejuvenate in the in-room Turkish steam bath or enjoy jaw-dropping views of the Mediterranean.

Victoria Principal – Virgin Galactic Spaceflight in sub-orbital outer space (in planning)
PRICE: $200,000 per person

If a stay on a private island is still too terrestrial for you (Necker Island does, after all, share a hemisphere with countless Best Westerns and Days Inns) Sir Richard Branson would love nothing more than to shoot you into outer space. FOF Victoria Principal is among the luminaries who have expressed interest in a Virgin Galactic spaceflight, which would comprise a six-passenger, two-pilot spacecraft taking you 70,000 feet above Mother Earth and back into her warm embrace in around 3.5 hours. The trip will most likely include six minutes of weightlessness, a perk no matter how many carbs you’ve been eating.

    Necker Island would most definitely be my choice and I would take my three children & my sister. My children are my life’s greatest joy. hey range in age from 32 to 25 and are 3 of the finest people I know. My sister and I have been through the death of my parents and our older sister. She works so hard and never really has a vacation. I would love to have a fabulous family reunion!

    I love to fly, in just about anything, just about anywhere. Going suborbital would be not really a vacation, unless I was up there for at least a week… and I’d probably get altitude sickness. So let’s say it’s just an event of a lifetime even if it only lasted an hour total. What a ride! I’d be dreaming about and reliving it all the way to my dying days. Some vacations just come in shorter packages.

    They all sound fabulous and each offers a slightly different take on a vacation. The island get-away with family and friends along for the ride sounds the most fun and relaxing. I love the Virgin Islands! Some of the most beautiful people and vistas in the Northern Hemisphere!

    Nothing like sharing a vacation with friends and family. Definitely would go for Oprah’s island vacation. I know a few great people who deserve it and would not be able to do so otherwise.

  18. Cynthia says:

    Although I would LOVE the spaceflight, my idea of a vacation is relaxing in the sun & surf for at least a week. If money were no object, the island should have a serious spa.
