In 1999 Chris began a ten year span at sea on luxury cruise liners as a pianist. This included two world cruises with SAGA, the Amazon rainforest and South America with Holland & America, and countless cruises around Europe and many excursion focused cruises on the Spirit of Adventure.

He enjoyed performing immensely, but after completing his dream of sailing around the world, he decided to return to English soil.
