"The sail away was magical for us. Beautiful weather and just the best band gig venue we've ever done! Some of us got quite emotional as we played sailing, and time to say goodbye, and looked around at all the masses of people on all the decks waving their arms, and dancing around to sweet Caroline.
Once again, thank you all for everything. It was our best band trip ever!"

"I could feel the slight nervousness of the choir as we began singing to our largest audience ever. But once again we nailed it!
Note perfect, timing spot on and a standing ovation. It was a perfect and fitting end to what was an absolutely fabulous trip. Goodbye Norwegian Fjords, goodbye MS Balmoral, you were amazing, fantastic, majestic, brilliant!!"
"Both of the “formal” concerts aboard Black Watch were performed to full capacity audiences and the delighted fellow passengers gave the choir a standing ovation at the end of each concert. Never have The Song of the Jolly Roger and What Shall We Do with the Drunken Sailor? sounded better than on this cruise!
The whole tour party was most impressed not only by the standards of service that they received whilst on board Black Watch but also the polite, efficient, cheerful and friendly manner in which these were carried out. Choir vice-president Phil Howells thanked Captain Danielsen and his team for making the cruise on his “Happy Ship” such an enjoyable and memorable experience."
