We are celebrating #WorldMaritimeDay. Our crew are extremely important to us. They are responsible for navigating our award-winning ships across the globe while keeping us safe and comfortable.
In light of Celebrity Solstice's upcoming season return, we thought it was extremely fitting to celebrate our Captain of the Moment Celebrity Solstice’s very own Captain Zisis Taramas. We recently caught up with Captain Taramas and asked him a few quick questions. And here is what he had to share…
Captain Zisis Taramas
When did your goal of becoming a ship captain first arise?
I was probably 4 or 5 years old. I couldn’t even pronounce the word “Captain” properly.
What was the best advice you have received in your career?
Always be truthful and fair.
Which port is your favorite?
Sydney, Australia is my favorite. In the early hours of the morning, the unbeatable scenery of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge combined with the sunrise is absolutely breathtaking.
What's the best part about being a captain of a Celebrity cruise ship?
That’s a difficult question, it’s hard to choose just one. With the reputation of Celebrity in the industry, the Modern Luxury clientele, the state-of-the-art modern ships to the friendliness of the guests and officers, it’s truly amazing being a captain for Celebrity.
If you could sum up being at sea in one word, what would it be?
