Subject: Cruise with "The King" on Carnival, 4/20/07 - 4/23/07
Hello Everyone! This is Hilda with Celebrity Entertainment in
Pittsburgh. Now that the holidays are over, you probably need
something else fun to look forward to. If you're like us, you are
probably tired of the extreme cold weather, snow and ice. Doesn't a
Bahamas Cruise sound good right about now?
Why not join nationally-known Elvis Tribute Artist - DON OBUSEK, and
me (his wife/manager, Hilda) on our 'Cruise with "The King" and
his "Queen"? Don's popular 'Tribute to the Magic of Elvis' has been
seen in 19 states and Canada. He was voted "The Best Elvis in
Pittsburgh" by WQED's "On Q Magazine".
2007 will mark the 30th anniversary of the passing of the world's
greatest entertainer - ELVIS PRESLEY. We wanted to do something fun
and special to celebrate the life of Elvis, so we came up with the
idea of a group cruise!
We did not want to interfere with Elvis' birthday week in January,
nor the Elvis Week celebrations in August, and we didn't want to go
during hurricane season or the holidays, so we decided that spring
will be a nice time to travel! Elvis fans can party all year!
First, Elvis' birthday in January, our reasonably priced Bahamas
cruise in April , and then meet up again in August, for the 'Elvis
Week' celebration in Memphis!
April 20 - 23, 2007, we will be cruising to the Bahamas onboard
Carnival's Cruise Ship "The Fascination". Don will perform his
outstanding 'Tribute to the Magic of Elvis' for our group.
We have some exciting news - KATHY WESTMORELAND, Elvis' lead female
singer of the '70's, will be our special guest! Kathy will be
accompanied by her assistant, JUNE MOORE. Kathy will share her
memories of her time with Elvis and will be happy to sign autographs
of any of her merchandise that is purchased onboard the ship!
We have also added a free one-hour cocktail party, available only to
our cruise group.
This event is a private event and is NOT open to the general
public. To be a part of this exclusive cruise, you MUST book with
Sheri at MAC Travel 1-800-243-0550. In Pittsburgh 412-875-0055. If
you do not book with MAC Travel, you will not be able to see Don's
performances or visit with Kathy and June, or be a part of the free
Cruise rates are reasonably priced at only $384.00 per person (US
Funds) double occupancy, inside stateroom. This covers the cruise,
all main meals, the free one-hour cocktail party, taxes and port
charges! Airfare and transfers are additional. ('transfers' means
you will need transportation from the airport to the cruise dock - in
other words, a taxi or shuttle service).
IMPORTANT; You MUST book the CRUISE part of this vacation with MAC
Travel. (1-800-243-0550), however, you can book your airfare with MAC
Travel, or you can book your airfare on your own. The ship leaves
from the port in Miami, however, you can also fly into Ft.
Lauderdale, which is about a 45 minute drive from Miami. Right now,
some airlines are having great fare sales, but hurry because airfare
can increase within a short period of time.
If you are planning on coming on this cruise, please book now! The
travel agency wanted final payment early in January, but forgot to
take into account the holiday season and the fact that people wanted
to get thru the holidays before they could start thinking about
vacation time. If you read about an early January deadline, ignore
it! They are still taking bookings, but please book now.
IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING PASSPORTS:
Today, 2/14/07, I spoke with the National Passport Agency (1-877-487-
2778). You can also go to their website:
As of today (2/14), a passport is not required for this trip, however
they strongly advise that passengers should get one. They take 6
weeks to get, so if you order one right away, it should get here on
time. A passport is not required for cruise passengers leaving
Miami, going to the Bahamas, but they still recommend all passengers
should have one. In the event of a medical emergency, or an illness
back home, you cannot fly home from a foreign country without a
If you do not choose to get a passport, please make sure you have an
original birth certificate or a government certified copy of your
birth certificate. It will have a raised seal on it (like a notary
seal). You will also need your driver's license and if you are a
married woman with a name change, you should take your marriage
certificate also. I AM NOT THE AUTHORITY ON THESE PROCEDURES - I am
only telling you what I was told. Please, if you have questions,
call the passport agency at the above number, or call Carnival Cruise
Lines at 1-800-CARNIVAL, so that you take the proper paperwork. DO
NOT BRING A PHOTOCOPY OR A XEROX COPY OF YOUR BIRTHCERTIFICATE. THAT
IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
Please tell your family, friends, and Elvis fans everywhere about
the "Cruise with "The King" and his 'Queen' AND Kathy and June! If
you belong to a fan club, please let your members know about this
event. Try to get a group together! Even if you are not an Elvis
fan, it will fun to be part of a group. Who knows - after this, you
might just become a fan! After the long winter months, it will be
nice to have something fun and relaxing to look forward to.
This cruise would make a great gift for a special birthday,
anniversary, wedding, graduation, bar mitzvah, etc. (Heck, it would
be a great gift for YOURSELF!!) If your company is looking for a
perfect destination event, this would be the place to go!
Detailed information on the cruise is on our website:

For a special vacation memory, come with us and experience
'A TRIBUTE TO THE MAGIC OF ELVIS'.
Thank you, thank you very much. We hope to see you in April!
There was only one ELVIS PRESLEY and there will never be another. No
one could ever take his place. Don does not pretend to be Elvis - he
just does an excellent tribute to the greatest entertainer that the
world has ever seen:
ELVIS A. PRESLEY
We want you to remember and relive
'THE MAGIC OF ELVIS'!!
"It's been said that 'Elvis has left the building', but, if you close
your eyes and listen very carefully, you can still hear him singing!"
