Rosario Giovanni Vasta, Captain of the Regent Seven Seas Explorer, offered tours of the bridge so we signed up for one.
This would be the captain showing the traditional ships christening water. The captain said "the water is worthless but the carafe is very expensive crystal".
Captain Vasta is from Torre Archirafi Sicily. The captain is one of two who have been with the Explorer since its launch in May 2016.
Vasta has a sense of humour. When asked about his previous command he said "I used to drive big cruise ships Miami to Miami, back and forth, back and forth and I got tired of the same route driving a huge shopping mall around".
