I remember Lady cutting our steaks for us and being very friendly.
Just wondering - I haven't seen her mentioned at all in this thread.
We had Lady on the Magic, and then again on the Fantasy last summer. It was her last cruise as she was going home to Peru to get married and goto school. We really enjoyed her

Another server, by the name of Daniel (from Portugal) wasn't our server, he was at a table nearby, but was fantastic with our children (we were travelling as a large group of 17 - with 9children in all). We just loved him! I would love to send him a care package but I don't know his last name. I tried to be in touch with Disney Cruise Line but they won't give out that information. Does anyone have any contact for Daniel? I don't want to send a care package with just his first name (as it is pretty common!).

Any and all help appreciated! Thanks in advance!

If you have your tip receipt their full name is on there FYI

"Sammy" is known by many cast members as Sompong ... but some know him as Sammy. Most guests know him as Sammy (when he introduces himself, he says his name is Sammy). Therefore, if you are requesting his as your server, you may want to request "Sammy" Sompong Pooncharoensuk.

Sammy has been a cruise line server for TWENTY-SEVEN years ... 1 year with one cruise line, followed by 13 years at another ... and now, 13 years with DCL on the Magic. Sammy told me he prefers to stay on the Magic.

As for his vacation, Sammy told me he will be going on vacation in September, and is expected to return to the Magic once out of dry dock. Sammy DOES NOT have a Facebook account or e-mail. If you wish to communicate with him, you will need to do so via snail mail. I gave Sammy my Castaway Club member notecards (with envelopes) ... and will be sending him US postage stamps, in case he wants to write to anyone. Please consider sending proper postage stamp(s) from your country, if you are communicating with him.

Steven
Sammy will also be on break March and April.

If its the same Anthony I met in March, he got back on after vacation from what I heard and I had three Matt's on when I cruised. I know one had went to the Wonder(now on vacation and moved to a character manager type position), one is on Fantasy now and the other is on vacation

We just returned from an Alaskan cruise on the Wonder - we had Niti and Marvin in the MDR - they were great! Very entertaining for the kids with little games and tricks each night. Hristopher? Hrist was the beginning of his name in Palo was good (although not Anne Marie or Katerina (who we had on the other ships). He has been on the WOnder for quite a long time.

Last October when we were on the Magic, we had head server was Bradford from India, and assistant server was Allessandro from Italy. Would love to have them on the Fantasy in October of 2014.

Our favorite serving team was Toby (from Australia) and Nadya (from Russia) they were on the Magic for our first cruise. 8 cruises and a couple years later, we've never seen either of them again. They could have just left DCL (both were fairly young) but has anyone seen them?

Also we developed friendship with Joshua in Youth Activities on that cruise. We have kept in touch since then. He is no longer with DCL, but its cool to see how he has been blessed in his life. He just commented on FB ether other day about how much our son has grown and asked our opinion on joining DVC lol

Hi Steven. Thanks so much for your reply and asking others to help me out. My parents have sailed DCL a few times (5), but my aunt & uncle have only sailed on Carnival and that was several years ago. I'm sure my parents have filled them in on what to expect, etc., so hopefully it will go well for all of them.

Hi Carole, thank you so much for the suggestions based on your recent Alaskan cruise. I will definitely have them call and put in the requests. Do you know where Niti and Marvin are from so I can have them include that information on the request? If not, no big deal. I'm sure it can be figured out.

Thanks again y'all! I really appreciate it.
