On our Sept/12 cruise our server was Eddie and his assistant was Milton. They were so friendly and good to our kids. We were very sad to say good bye

Just back from wonder. We had Richard (France) as head server but didn't interact with him. Our server was ok (cant remember his name now) from India. He kept on bringing an extra plate of food of something we didn't order so we would try it. And on the second to last night he asked if we were catholic and gave us some web site address... Two things I don't talk to anyone about is politics or religion... Politely put it away and to the trash later went. he did take the hint i was not going to talk religion. Kind of ruined it for me. He was doing a great job up until then... So over all, came down to just ok. Kids did like him tough...

But, our assistant server was Tita (Hungary). She was amazing! We all loved her and look forward to request for her when we cruise the wonder in the future (hopefully).

We just got off the Wonder 2/16. Our server was Madara from Latvia and the assistant server was Konrad from Poland. They both were great every evening. We were two families with three kids at our table. The kids loved them as they would joke around with them, and the adults as well. They would both have a conversation with you and we found out some interesting things about each one of them. Their lives as dining staff and living conditions onboard make for some hilarious conversation! I would definatley request them in the future on upcoming cruises.

If you have your reservation through a travel agent, ask them to call DCL and add the server request. Otherwise, you can call DCL directly and have them add it.

And it's best to only make one request. Only ask for either the server, or the asst server, or a specific rotation.

If you have more than one request, DCL doesn't know which to honor and won't grant any of them.

A serving team may no longer be working together, or even on the same rotation, as then can change from cruise to cruise.

That whole religion thing would send me over the edge. Glad he got the hint.

Just off back to backs on the Wonder today. We had Putu as our server on the first cruise- he is amazing and funny and his assistant Emma was great too! Second cruise we had Minda (or Mindagaus) he was adorable but not as outgoing. Other good suggestions are Noel from India and Tumi from S. Africa.

I have to admit I miss him too as it has been a week since we got off. The kids keep asking if we will see them again.

Bonieface has been on the Wonder for 11 years and Vitor had only been on for 4 months. Both were truly outstanding!
OMG!!! We had them on the Wonder in 2011. If I would have known I would have requested them again I would have (we were just on the Wonder February 16th sailing). They were really good. This last cruise we had Phizroy (Jamaica). He was really good too!!!!

I wonder if that's the same Noel. If it is I had him as my asst. server on the Wonder on her first Hawaii cruise. He was great. Glad to see he got promoted to server.

Oh, wow. We had Putu on our first MR cruise, just loved him.

And we had Minda(gaus) on our Hawaii cruise. He told us he was going home, it was the end of his contract, and he probably wasn't coming back. We liked him, also. Who was his asst server?

EDIT: I just looked back and Putu was our server on our 2010 Med cruise


Here's Mindaugas

Isn't Minda adorable? My kids loved him- we requested him for our 2nd half of our b2b after some wonderful interactions around the ship. I think he is happier on the ship now
His assistant was Zimik. She was sweet but quiet.

We just got off the Wonder yesterday and we had them too. They both were great.
