Please refer to post #251. If that does not work, you might consider mailing the picture to the address listed on page 1 of this thread ... making sure you add NIKKI / Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique on the shipping label, or on the package. Remember to protect the picture with TWO pieces of rigid cardboard (the thin Priority Mail envelopes will not protect a photo from damage).

Remember the GOLDEN RULE: If you like a cast member, remember to ask THEM for their last name (and home country). They know why you want the information, and the will gladly oblige!

Shaka is still on the Magic. Only about five crew members from the Magic came over to the Fantasy. We had Shaka back in August 2009 and LOVED him........Was glad we got to see Trevor in The Tube one night and happy our cruise director was Brent.

Does anyone know "Helen" from Kenya (assistant server on the Wonder)? She was on the Wonder in July 2012. Her head server is Roy and she works with Heru from Indonesia.

My daughter would like to write to her but we don't know her last name. Do I need to know her last name in order to write to her?

Thanks.

Also, does anyone have recommendations for a great server team (Head Server & Server) for the Magic?

We're doing the Med on June 1, 2012 with a family of 9 and have food allergies. It'd be great to get a good team who is really "on" it. We like people who don't mind it when we order lots of food My family literally cruises for food first, ports second. Thanks!

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!
Englebert was our Head Server on our August Alaska cruise. Great guy! And we saw Fiona quite a bit also. She was a lot of fun!

Im pretty sure Sophie is staying on the Wonder.... We met her on her 3rd week on board last January and have kept in touch. What a sweet girl She has a special someone joining her on board for a week in Feb so I know she'll still be there until at least Mid February when we cruise.

We actually chose to cruise on the Wonder again just so we can see a few very sweet people again. Sophie, Charlotte (who was on the Fantasy as club host for 2 months and after vacation will be back on the Wonder), Selcuk (back from vacation Jan 10), and Yusef and Vladimir.
If any of you meet any of these folks consider yourself very lucky- they are dome of the sweetest people I know!

I always suggest guests retain their gratuity receipts, so you get the full name with correct spelling. Knowing which country they are from is also a help.

If you knew the either the last name, DCL Guest Communications would likely be able to help. If you know their country, shipboard personnel would like be able to help. My suggestion would be to write the letter as intended, but send the letter to the ship's Restaurant Manager - including a note of when you sailed (including your table #, DCL reservation #, DCL cruise # or folio number if known. The Restaurant Manager should be in a position to get the mail to the intended recipient ... assuming they are still on the ship.

In this case, your best best would be to seek an extremely attentive HEAD Server. If you do not get names from this board, write to the HOTEL MANAGER (who is above ALL Restaurant Managers) ... explain the situation ... ask if they could pair you up with an appropriate Head Server. The Restaurant Manager will likely indicate all are great ... but should be able to assist in some way or another.

Thanks for this tip! What a great idea. We met and spoke to the hotel manager on the July 2012 Alaska cruise and he WAS really great. I'll follow your advice on writing to him for the Magic, thanks.

Gabor Nemeth is sadly no longer with DCL, he was WONDERFUL!!!

Does anyone remember Dario and Gerry from the Magic? We had them years ago (2009) and my DH still compares every serving team to them!

Of course we all love Trevor and Max with the Entertainment Team.

We also loved Novlette, our stateroom hostess on the Magic.

We've sailed all 4 ships, but with the exception of Gabor, all of our favorites were on the Magic.

When we were on our cruise on Wonder in May we had Balwan Singh from India as head server. We are going on Wonder again next May and would love to have him again. When we were living he said he would probably still be on Wonder, but I heard now that he might go to another ship. Does someone has any information?
