OUR SPECIAL GUESTS...
We are all bursting to tell you that we have not one, but three very special guests on board - and we mean special. Have you ever wondered what it was like to be Elvis' girlfriend? Perhaps you'd like to find out first-hand what it was like to share romantic times at Graceland, on tour or in Las Vegas. We are giving you the opportunity to meet three of Elvis' former girlfriends on our cruise.
Incredibly, these young ladies have never attended Elvis Week before, and we are delighted to host them all for the very first time. Please, do not miss the the very rare chance to meet them all together in once place. This really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all.
ABOUT OUR GUESTS...
Elvis' third tour of 1975 began in July and there to accompany him was the reigning Miss Georgia USA, Diana Goodman. Elvis called Diana personally to ask her to join the tour and he arranged for her to fly out to meet him in style on his private Lear jet. They had met at Graceland a short time earlier when Diana was invited to the Memphian Theater to watch movies with Elvis and the guys. The funny, curvaceous blonde can be seen with Elvis in several photographs taken on July 19th 1975 as they rode in his limousine to and from his concerts in Uniondale, New York. Of their first meeting Diana recalls, "Of course, the entire world was his stage. He literally took my breath away!"
Elvis dated model / actress Mindi Miller in the spring of 1975 and she accompanied him on the first leg of his tour in April, which consisted mainly of cities in Florida and the Southern states. They had a lot in common, including a love of all kinds of religions, the art of karate and numerology, often reading and spending hours talking about the subject. Mindi stayed in touch with Elvis for the rest of his life and he enjoyed her uplifting personality and wit. "Elvis was the most caring, unselfish soul I've ever met in my life." Mindi says. "He was a Southern gent in every way."
During Elvis' January / February 1974 engagement in Las Vegas he became acquainted with 23-year-old Ann Pennington, a model / actress and future Playboy Playmate who lived in LA. They shared the same Beverly Hills dentist, Max Shapiro, who telephoned Ann to set up the initial meeting. The pair had met previously at Elvis' home in California and from the beginning he found the soulful Ann, with her big, expressive eyes, easy to be around. “There was an awful lot of feeling there.” she says of the year-long relationship. “My experience with Elvis was nothing but fun and sweetness.”
Your VIP ticket will include everything mentioned above, and as an extra bonus we will include a complimentary 8x10 photograph of each of our guests as a souvenir of your afternoon.
