Have you heard the news? There’s good rockin’ on the rolling waves, thanks to Sixthman and Carnival Fascination, which will set sail in January 2012 for the 5th annual Elvis Cruise.
Presley-loving passengers will embark on their all Elvis adventure from Jacksonville, Florida, and they’ve “Got a Lot of Livin’ To Do” during their days at sea as they head for Nassau, Bahamas. Following are a few of the onboard activities on the Elvis Cruise:
- Like the lyrics of his 1968 single, Memories have “sweetened through the ages just like wine,” and during the cruise fans can drink in the fond remembrances of those who starred in films with Elvis. The following line-up of luminaries who helped to make The King’s cinematic dreams come true will join fans on the nostalgic nautical excursion:
- Passengers can tap their feet to the beat during performances by Elvis’ Imperials, the Holladay Sisters (who sang backup on the King’s chart-topper’s “Suspicious Minds,” “Kentucky Rain,” “In the Ghetto” and many more), The Memphis Boys, who provided the rhythm section for “In the Ghetto,” “Suspicious Minds” and “Kentucky Rain”; Emmy-nominated recording artist/actor Terry Mike Jeffrey; singer Andy Child, who has opened for such classic contemporary artists as Faith Hill, Martina McBride and Clint Black; and the music director and conductor for Elvis’ concerts, Joe Guercio.
