At this time, it would be hard to make suggestions for 11-12 months out. Contracts for servers generally do not last for more than 6 months, and their vacation time can range from 2-4 months. You might want to try checking back around June (save this thread as a favorite).

As an example, I just left the Fantasy on 12/15. One server was just coming on the ship, but will be off the ship in December. Another Palo server was just leaving the ship, will be back on the ship ... but will be leaving the ship (again) in August.

I'm sending a care package to one of my favorite Assistant Servers ... Rado Hristev (Bulgaria) ... currently sailing on the Fantasy. A box of Peppermint Bark (semi-sweet chocolate infused with peppermint oil, a layer of white chocolate, topped with crushed peppermint candy canes) ... along with Peanut Brittle. You can't get THAT in the Caribbean!

Stephen, did you run in to Tina from Activity Staff on the Fantasy? She shared her FB info with us but I misplaced it... She was from Michigan.

Actually, I do not remember anyone from the activity staff ... did not seem to do many activities on the Maiden Voyage, or in December either. I still have a lot of the ship I need to investigate!

You might consider sending an e-mail to DCL Guest Communications ... send a simple praise to them about Tina ... and if they would be in a position to let you know her last name ... so you can use it in further correspondence (I would refrain from referencing anything about Facebook). If they *do* provide her last name, HOPEFULLY, you will be able to find her! If not ... you have to go on another cruise REAL SOON!

Andrew - Are you still with DCL? If so, what ship? Are you still in the same department? I will make sure Happy Goofy knows you responded.

Hello Steven! I was looking at the cruises you've done and it looks like I was working on a few of yours! The Wonder in '08 (We opened Toy Story that month -- was it on your cruise?), the Magic EB Transatlantic ( I taught the Dancing With The Officers Segment of the Talent Show) LOVED that cruise and Madeira and the Fantasy inaugural. Unfortunately I didn't perform in Aladdin that first cruise because I had just sustained an injury the week before. Hope life is good! I left DCL this summer and now work at DCA

We are in Merritt island for the winter. . I have been having some eye problems which sometimes affects my balance. We did the. Hawaiian cruise and are doing the Panama in May. We are about 5 minutes from the port and often go down and watch the Dream and Fantasy leave. Hope to cruise someday on the newer ships . You,

Clayton and Jessica were so nice to me when I was learning the dance with Clayton If you ever get a few hours off we would love to meet you for lunch or coffee etc.My cell is 860 402 4873,

Any recommendations for servers on the Magic? Doing the June 1 Med. We're doing a big family cruise and would love it if we got a great server team.

Thanks!

I have not been on the Magic for quite some time now ... but I did send a message to a CM who transferred from the Magic. He is trying to see who is on the ship now, as we speak. I hope to get some names for you, and others.
