BYO Blue Suede Shoes: The Elvis Cruise Will Sail Again
Looks like these ladies also love our souvenir cup
Have you figured out where you're going for a stereotypical summer vacation yet? Maybe Cancun or Jamaica? Perhaps it's the year for Orlando or Cabo. Orbear with usa cruise? We're of the mind that if you're going to go all out and get on a big boat with thousands of others to drink and eat for 4 days or more, there better be some irony to it. A good example is taking a theme cruise versus a regular one, or going the super classy route on a Cunard ship.
Our current favorite option is the Elvis Cruise 2012, which happens next January, so you've got allllll summer to save up and start amassing adhesive sideburns. It's a quickie cruisefour days from Jacksonville, FL to Nassau, Bahamasbut there'll be 2,000 Elvis fanatics onboard and the idea of that blows our mind.
Inside cabins onboard the Carnival Fascination begin at $599 per person, but it's BYO-blinged out jumpsuit. Apparently there will be Elvis cover bands performing as well as talks from a photojournalist and an actress who knew the King in his heyday. We'll be the jaded New Yorkers hanging out in the ship's kitschiest bar, wearing dark sunglasses but secretly delighting in being in the middle of such a weird tourist spectacle.
