A Few Minutes with Dan Harahan from Celebrity Cruises

Dan Harahan, the president of Celebrity Cruises, answered question posed by customers on Facebook during a video conference on Livestream this morning. During the informal Q&A, he answered questions about suspending the line's calls at Egypt, expansion of the Qsine restaurant, new features on the line's forthcoming ships, the why's behind the line's smoking policy, and future plans after Celebrity Reflection joins the fleet.

Yes, the recording does start in mid-sentence. The first few minutes of the video conference were lost apparently when someone at Livestream or Celebrity forgot to push the "record" button.
