Elvis fans will get a taste of the Mississippi River's southern hospitality with the brand new "Walk in Elvis' Steps" cruise from New Orleans to Memphis on November 24, 2012. The American Queen Steamboat Company recently announced the all-star lineup including featured guest speakers, entertainment, and a complete itinerary for Elvis lovers to enjoy.

Featured entertainers include fan favorites Andy Childs, Brad Birkendahl and Terry Mike Jeffrey along with world-renowned Elvis tribute artists live in concert. Special performers include 2008 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Brandon Bennett, 2009 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Bill Cherry and 2012 runner-up and award winning rockabilly Elvis tribute artist Victor Trevino, Jr.

Guests will also enjoy guest speakers such as "The Trouble with Girls" co-star Marlyn Mason, "Girl Happy" co-star Chris Noel, and Elvis' long-time bodyguard and personal friend Sam Thompson.

Begin your voyage in New Orleans with an all-inclusive luxury hotel stay and a full day to enjoy the sights and sounds of the place where Elvis filmed scenes for "King Creole." Fans will then take the journey up the banks of the historic Mississippi River taking in the culture of the Antebellum South, delta blues, and stomping grounds of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Upon your arrival in Memphis, you'll be sure to get into the holiday spirit when you’re invited to experience a tour at Graceland while it is decked out for Christmas, the king's favorite time of the year. Then join the festivities for a special ceremony that will light up the exterior grounds of Graceland for the holiday season, followed by an exclusive party for American Queen guests.
