Update on the 2010 Elvis Cruise Activities & Entertainment
September 27, 2010
The Elvis Cruise is getting ready to set sail and it's time to start firming up your plans for November! We've got a lineup of special guests and Elvis activities you won't want to miss.
Entertainment & Special Guests
Performing as part of Elvis' Imperials during the 2010 Elvis Cruise, we're so happy to have Bill Baize on board this year. Elvis Presley once said of Bill, "He has one of the most splendid voices in the world." Bill, an ordained minister, has performed with gospel quartets like the Echoes of Calvary, The Illinoisans, The Trailsmen Quartet, and the Smitty Gatlin Singers. He also performed with Elvis when he was part of JD Sumner and the Stamps Quartet.
One of Elvis' favorite jewelers, Lowell Hayes will be joining us on the 2010 Elvis Cruise. Lowell will be in the Elvis Store on the ship to share his stories about Elvis along with some of his latest creations.
Please welcome to the cruise, Jody McDowell. You may remember him as the guy who played the piano late at night at the casino bar on previous Elvis cruises. One thing Elvis loved was to gather a huge group around the piano at Graceland and play and sing all night. Jody loves recreating that atmosphere and tradition and we're happy to have him join us again this year!
He won the 2010 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest with his outstanding vocals and Elvis-like moves. Welcome aboard, Justin Shandor. We're so excited to have the winners from the past four years on board!

More Elvis Activities
Here is your chance to sing on stage like the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Pick your favorite Elvis song, your liquid courage of choice, and show off what you've got.
Shake, Rattle and Roll Singles Social
Have you been wondering if there are singles on board the cruise? Well, there's only one way to find out! We will be hosting this event on board as a fun way to shake things up a bit and meet some of The Elvis Cruise family.
Humes High School Homecoming Dance
We want to take you back to a simpler time. Guests will already be dressed up for the Humes High School Homecoming Night, so it's a great excuse to head up to the homecoming dance. We will be looking to crown an Elvis Cruise king and queen, while everyone dances the night away under the stars.
Elvis Insiders' Happy Hour
We have got something planned that is exclusively for Elvis Insiders! This is an opportunity hang out with Jerry Schilling and mingle with other Insiders in an intimate setting. We can't think of a better way to start off this Elvis vacation. If you're not an Elvis Insider, find out how to become one.
Cuttin' Up With Larry Geller
Do you chitchat with your hairstylist? Well, Elvis sure did. But Larry was much more than Elvis Presley's personal hairstylist - he was one of his dearest and most trusted friends. Here's a chance to sit down with him and hear all about their relationship and the times they shared.
In The Movies with Warren Berlinger & Diane McBain
The movie "Spinout" was a huge Elvis hit in Hollywood back in 1966. Joining The Elvis Cruise for the first time are Warren and Diane from the cast of "Spinout." They will be paired up in a panel to talk about Elvis and give a glimpse of what working with the King of Rock 'n' Roll in the movies was all about.
Sports Panel with Hank Garrett and Jerry Schilling
Elvis was a guys' guy and loved, among many different things, sports. One of his closest friends, Jerry Schilling, loves to talk about the times they spent playing football and other games together. Hank Garrett will also join in the conversation with his personal experiences with Elvis while training for karate together. You won't want to miss this intimate look at Elvis' life.
Rewind with Jim Palmer and Roy Turner
Immediately following the viewing of their inspiring documentary "Homecoming: Tupelo Welcomes Elvis Home," you will get the chance to join Jim and Roy as they talk about Elvis' life in Tupelo.
New Incentives To Book!
Independent Travelers Program
Are you still on the fence about joining us because you just don't want to cruise by yourself? Or maybe it's because you can't afford the double occupancy price of booking a solo cabin? Either way, we've got the solution for you! With our Independent Travelers Program (ITP) you can book a single cabin for half the price. Here's how it works:
When you sign up, you only pay the single occupancy price. Read carefully! You only pay a single occupancy rate, but you are then subject to being paired with someone else who is of the same sex and in your same situation - an independent traveler.
If you have any questions regarding our Independent Travelers Program, please don't hesitate to contact us online or call 404-564-9140.
Flexible Payment Plan
If you're thinking about booking and are not sure if you will be able to make the payments on time, please read more about our Flexible Payment Plan. We want what is best for your budget!
At the time of booking your reservation, we will only ask for half down and you will have 30 days or 48 hours prior to sailing (which ever comes first) to pay off the other half. How's that for flexible? Again, if there is anything we can do to help, contact us online or call 877-379-9172.
