Tiziana is very nice and my eight and ten year old loved her. She was very accomodating with their requests and had little brain teasers and puzzles for them often. Not sure if she is still on the ship.

Head server-Celo
Server-Dipo
Asst. server-Hervey

We just returned from Disney Fantasy 9/22-29. We could not have asked for better servers. They were so attentive and were GREAT with our kids. Dipo did crayon riddles with our kids every night. I will ask for them again if I am given the opportunity. Our friends little girl is very shy with men but loved our servers. Have a great time! I am suffering from post-cruise depression right now.

Another very enthusiastic vote for Tiziana! She's the best server we've had in multiple cruises, hands down. She was great in interacting with my 10 and 8 year old.

Palo - Perdjan (spelling?? from Serbia)

They were all fanastic. Alberto, Anson and Buddi were INVALUABLE when it came to getting DS (5 years old) to eat and went out of their way to acknowledge us even in Cabana's and other places around the ship. We rebooked on board for next September and asked for the same servers.

It sounds like you have some great suggestions above as well. Have a great cruise!
Another vote here for Anson and Buddi!! We had them 9/22-9/29 and they were fantastic!!!

We went to lunch at Royal Table one day and a head server from another team came around to check on us. He asked who our serving team was. When we told him that we had Tiziana he said that she is the best of the best.

Just got off the Fantasy this past Saturday. We had Sheldon D. from India and Marko V. from Montenegro. They were fantastic! Probably one of the best serving teams I've had in 4 Disney cruises. Magic tricks every night, great recommendations, and FAST and friendly service. And since we were a table of all adults, some of the humor was appropriate for just us! Great team!

We also just had Greg from Hungary as our head server and he was awesome! We were so happy with him. Just got off the ship yesterday. He didn't have a strong accent at all. He got everything right and even told us a couple of times NOT to order something because too many people said it wasn't good. My five year old son loved him too.

We had women servers on our Aug. 25 cruise. We've always had men in the past, so this was a first for us. They were wonderful! Marena and Ana. Marena is very young at heart and silly and Ana was just very sweet. They were great servers and always remembered our preferences. We couldn't have been happier.

We were on the Sept 29-Oct 06 cruise, and due to some real screw-ups by the Head Server, we had 3 different sets of servers over the course of the 7 night cruise. Honestly, none of them were very good, and I don't even remember their names (even though we've only been home 2 days). They were great at "chatting", and making "Mickey Heads" out of Ketchup, but the repeatedly rushed us into placing our orders, and forgetting to bring items after repeated reminders (I'm still pissed I never got the cheese/potato soup).

Overall, the evening Dining (food and servers) were a huge disappointment!
