As a side note, some guests have indicated a preference for either a male or female server ... a server from a specific country ... and even a server who speaks a specific language. Some have found the latter is a great way to connect with their ancestry and old roots!
Thanks I will suggest it to them. We are not going with them.

We saw Dwight on the Dream October 2011, and he told us he was going over to the Fantasy when it went into service.

P.S. Shaka! One time I went to go grab something from our room, and he was in there vacuuming during turn-down. He was jamming out to a reggae song, singing along while dancing and vacuuming at the same time. Brought a huge smile to my face that he was having so much fun.

4/22 Mexican Riviera Wonder
Stateroom Host: Eric Loila, super great, always said hello and remembered my name from day one. I saw him on his hand and knees scrubbing bathroom floors, he was superb.

Harry Simmons: Head Server: Checked in every night, cut entrees and refilled drinks when the servers were busy, exactly what a head server should do!

Lilijiana Ristic: Croatia: Assitant Server, AWESOME, friendly with the kids, amazing and fast with everything. Saw us in port and came over and said hi, chatted with us even during her VERY limited time off.

Englebert Souza: India: Server, fun magic tricks and pretended to spill a drink on my wife several times which had the table howling in laughter as she jumped out of her seat. When my wife wasnt feeling well, he insisted I pick and entree for her, which I did, and he had it brought up to our room, free of course. Awesome!

Tai, Australia, future cruise desk guy, I got to know him well and he bended several rules for us to book onboard. Super nice and helpful with my million different scenarios.

JD, kids club, SO awesome with my kids, you can see him in the Disney Wonder "time of my life" video, he dancing in the kids club with a white shirt. He ran several activites and my daugthers loved him.

Fiona, Englad, cruise staff: For some reason we just ran into her everywhere and chatted over and over, she is what I call a "real shaped" woman (my fav!), not a size zero stick, but is up there dancing during sail away and PITC party, always with a smile. She also ran Mickey Mania too.


I got some crap on here for asking so many times what server / assitant to request, well, it paid off, I had the all star team!

Ponz was on our Alaskan cruise June 4-11 on the Wonder. He was awesome. Even talked my DH into going on stage as John Travolta during Disco Legends night. Ponz really knew his disco. I told him you would have thought he was from that time. I loved running into him around the sip. Always had a smile.

I do not know his last name but he works in the entertainment side of things...Bingo , games, animation drawing , etc. Every time he sees me he knows my name!

also, our all time favorite server is Alex Campo from the philippines! my sister and her husband returned a couple of weeks ago from the fantasy and requested alex but was told he is on the dream . if you are cruising on the Dream anytime soon do yourself a favor & request him! I AM TELLING YOU, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! if you didn't happen to see him on the Dream PLEASE give him a message for me. ( I am giving you time now to write this down for me )

please tell him that Pam & family(Glen &Allison) from NC and Jill & family from the UK said hello & we are dying to see him & we will be on the Magic August 17th.

you do not know how much I would appreciate this! we were on the dream in 2010 & he was on vacation at the time and our cruise just was not the same without him!

Just off the Fantasy yesterday, and we had great servers!

Renata from Hungary and Timo from Germany were great! I happen to be Hungarian, so I did request a Hungarian server, and was very pleased with Renata. We were with a large family group of many different ages, and Renata and Timo were very good at keeping the little ones happy so us older ones could enjoy ourselves, too!

Had Daniel Javor as our server at lunch one day, then saw him again at breakfast another day, and I see why he is also highly recommended! If Renata is not around on our next Fantasy cruise, I will cross my fingers and hope that Daniel is!

Our room steward was Melvin from Honduras, and he was very nice and very, very humble. He kept our ice bucket filled, and the room was always clean and tidy when we returned, and any request I had, he made happen.

We also had Palo brunch one morning, and met Laszlo in Palo, though he was not our server (and I did not care for the server we did have, but maybe he just was having a bad day, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt). Laszlo will definitely be requested next time we do a Palo meal, if he is still there!

Does anyone know who is calling Bingo on the Magic right now? I'm hoping Trevor is back, but I doubt it.
I heard Kat is Bingo Queen on the Magic right now.

We were on the Dream in December and while walking down the hall there she was! Went to Bingo and had a great time again with her.

Does anyone know if Jared, entertainment staff, is on the Dream still or has he changed to the Fantasy? He is real good friends with Peter Pan.

Unfortunately, Sammy has no interest in computers, so email is out of the question. Last we heard, he was intending to stay on the Magic. Has anyone seen Sammy? It's been over a year since our last Magic cruise, and we won't be back until July 2013 for Greece.
We had Sampong on our first cruise in 2002 onboard the Magic.
We sailed again in January of this year and there he was at Parrot Cay during our welcome lunch! He was just as sweet as ever was happy we went to say hello. He took very good care of my then 9 year old, who is about to turn 20 next Sunday.
