One of the coolest moments of the cruise was this bagpipe band that serenaded us as we sailed off from Invergordon. There was no announcement that this was happening. We just happened to be walking back from the spa that evening, across the top deck, when we heard the familiar strains. Sadly, the coolest part occurred after I stopped shooting. While the ship pulled away from the pier, every musician but one marched toward town, leaving a lone piper who kept playing until he was almost out of sight.
