The country crooner had decided to do something a little different after 30 years singing on dry land.
So, having just turned 50, the Donegal man signed up for several performances on a cruise liner around the Caribbean in recent weeks.
But the Kincasslagh crooner has admitted that things did not go as smoothly as planned as he tried to find his ‘sea legs.’
“The first day we left Fort Lauderdale the sea was a bit rough and I was worried that I might not be able to stand on the stage, never mind perform on it!
“The ship was rocking from side to side and I was running from one side of the stage to the other to try and keep up with it!
“My dancing was even more dynamic than usual. Thanks to the movement of the ship I was doing steps I didn’t even know I was capable of,” he said.
But once he got into the swing of things Daniel said he enjoyed every last minute of it.
In fact, he has already signed up to do another cruise in 2013.
“It was some experience! The rest of the week was beautiful and calm and I think everyone had a great time.
“It is only at times like this when so many of the Irish entertainers are gathered together in one place that you realise the wealth of talent that is in our small country.
“I will be doing the same cruise next year so maybe I’ll see some of you on it,” he said.
The news will be music to the ears of Gertrude Byrne Promotions who sold out the 2,000 places in this year’s cruise in just weeks last summer thanks to Daniel and 40 other Irish performers.
