Glad to see someone else had Curtis! He was great

So funny you mention the Mickey bar. DH had that every night for dessert except one night, and he never had to ask for it! The one night he changed his mind he actually told O'Neil before hand so that he wouldn't bring the Mickey bar...but guess what came to the table anyway?

Yes you can! Just call DCL, or have your TA do so, and have them note your request on your reservation. You can only have one request for dining, however, so if you want a particular rotation you wouldn't be able to request a server as well.

Ninja was our assistant on the MV. He was fantastic. Wish our server had been, but he was replaced after the third night.

I wish we'd had more time with Ninja. He cracked us up. The kids were always doing Ninja moves when he came to the table, and he was so good spirited about it. Apparently he hurt his knee, and DD mentioned that maybe he hurt it doing his ninja moves, and he was totally in character in response to her question and showed her the "move" that injured him. Too funny!

Wonder why they have to move to the Magic after drydock in 2013 when the San Juan cruises aren't until October 2014

You know, when Fitz said the ship was going to new ports I just didn't question him. He said he didn't want to do another drydock so worked it out. Maybe they just want some of their better CMs back on the classics now that the new ships are established?

Several servers we know told us that they had been told guest counts have been low on the classics to the point where they only have one seating at dinner some cruises.
Yay!!! We love Cedomir!!!! I guess we'll see him in Oct after dry dock!!! Woo hoo!!!

On our cruise a few weeks ago we had head server Witt and the team of Anson and Nico. The trio was incredible!! The next time our family cruises we'll definitely be requesting them as servers.

We had Ahmet and Roberto as our Servers last Sept. on the Fantasy and couldn't have been more thrilled (and we've cruised DCL13 times). We have already requested them for our upcoming cruise

Just so you know, I wasn't doubting you. I guess this will just go down as another one of life's mysteries even though I am sure DCL has some sort of reasoning behind it.

I know. It made me scratch my head also when I read your post.

We had them too on the May 25 and loved them! We go on the fantasy again next may and she said she'll be there. This is the first time I plan on requesting a server, sadly Curtis will probably be promoted by then.
