We were on the Easter 2012 sailing of the Dream, eating breakfast in Cabana's and getting ready to disembark for Castaway Cay, when my husband said "Isn't that Marlee Matlin???". I turned to look and there she was sitting with her husband and kids, eating breakfast, wearing her swim coverup and baseball hat! I thought about asking for a picture but didn't want to bother her and her family.

Marlee Matlin was also the narrator at Epcot for the Christmas story in 2008, which was our daughter's first trip. I think we must be connected some way!

Years ago, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown had been on a cruise shortly before ours with their daughter. I believe it was on the Magic.

We had Joey Fatone on our DVC Member Cruise in 2011, he did a presentation on stage and enjoyed the cruise, too. There are often various celebrities on the DVC cruises.

We were on the Magic with Richard Karn (Al Borland from Home Improvement) He was very cordial signing autographs for some but for the most part people let him and his family enjoy their cruise.

Back in 2000 Richard Simmons was on our Carnival Cruise, with one of his "Cruise to Lose" groups. We had heard he was on board, and walked by him on the gangway while we were disembarking and he was returning to the ship in St. Thomas.

John Lasseter and Jay Ward were on our Pixar Cruise in September. Lasseter and his wife walked past us during the lifeboat drill. We saw Ward and his kids a couple times in the elevators. And of course we went to their presentations.

We were on a 3nt cruise on Wonder when The Suite Life on Deck premiered and the entire cast was on board, and the Sprouse twins were in the suite next to ours so we saw them on the balcony frequently. Didn't know who any of the people were til we were on board. It was neat to watch them show the premiere episode red carpet style and all on the funnel vision.

That is the kind of person he is. I have never met a nicer man.
