We talk about how the crew plots the course to a destination and tracks the ship's progress via geolocation, second by second.
Sympouras also talks about a cruise ship captain's schedule (3 months on board, 3 months vacation) and his interactions with guests.
And he describes the famed captain's table dinners on board that serve an exclusive dinner with personalized menus for members of Celebrity Cruises' loyalty program.
I had a lot of fun talking talking with Capt. Sympouras, who was friendly and down to earth. Perhaps we'll share a glass of ouzo in Piraeus one day.
