Yep, same Tomas. We had requested him for our cruise last week. That is when we found out that he was on the Magic. He was the asst Server to Igor on the Wonder. Last week they told us that he was on vacation for 2 weeks. I plan on writing him.

From our Wonder cruise in June



Cedomir (head waiter from Croatia) Trisha (Trinidad asst. server) and Francisco (Chili our waiter)

Our funny story. First night, both DD's were having "issues" cutting their meat, so Cedomir steps in and cuts it for them (which upset our older DD). She commented that they needed "big kid" steak knives. Two days later, we're in Parrot Cay eating breakfast, and the head server comes up to us and asks if there's anything they can do to make our dining experience better, and DD says "yes, give the big kids big kid's knives!" Well, at dinner that night, Cedomir comes up to our table, and tells us he has a surprise for us. When our entree was set down, here he comes with a serving tray, with real steak knives! He claims he went into storage to dig them out (that they switched over to less sharp knives because of the kids). We still tease DD about it!

OH!!! Thank you! This is huge news. We hoped that one day he would switch. We asked about him on the WB Repo - but no luck.

You just made the anticipation of our upcoming cruise even more unbearable.

He is so awesome!

Here is a photo of Tomas in St Kitts with a few of the girls.

Our Waiter, on left, was Edwin from the Phillipines and our asst, with the kids, was Tode (toady) from Serbia. They were both awesome and we were extremely pleased with their service!

This is Fitz (Jamaica), along with my friends son, Michael ~they absolutely adored each other, I think if Michael could have stayed with Fitz for the whole cruise he would have!~. Fitz is my all time favorite person (with the exception of my dh and mm) on the Magic.



He was our server in 2002 and 2006 (in 2004 - we did not know that you could request your server ~ but we did manage to see him one night at the dessert buffet). We have requested him for our upcoming trip, but hear that he is a head server now... We shall see....

Fitz goes way above and beyond... in 2002, on our honeymoon, we were at a table with 4 other hm'ing couples. One of the 1st nights, we ordered some sort of cheese appetizer... when they came, nobody liked them - the cheese smelled like feet... Fitz explained that it was supposed to be like that and asked if we were expecting mozzarella sticks (if a funny, sarcastic sort of way)... we laughed and said yes then we all asked if the chef could make us some... he laughed and returned with our entrees.... Our first stop (St. Martin) was great and when we went to dinner that night we noticed a covered dish in the middle of the table that Fitz would not let us touch... After our meal, he opened it up for us and there were some mozzarella sticks... we do not know if he managed to get one of the chefs to make them or if he bought them on the island... This is just one example of how Fitz has made our cruises ever more wonderful experiences than they already would have been...

We had Clive as a server several years ago and he is certainly our all time favorite server on ANY cruise. We did not have him with Vivian, but with Sandra, who we also liked a lot, but I think she may not work with DCL anymore. We are always excited to see Clive again & remarkably he seems to remember us years later!

Witt (above) was our server on our last cruise & he was just amazing, entertaining the kids with his magic tricks and just a genuinely nice guy to talk to.

I'm happy to see others have enjoyed them as well.

This is Arnold. On our first cruise in 2004 he was our server. Now he is a head server and is still a great guy. DCL needs to give him a raise!!

That was our head server as well!

To be honest, our servers were efficient and nice, but not very memorable.

that is too bad...every night my 5 year old daughter wanted to see a different character and our waiter, Edwin, would use the napkins to make it happen...he made a Peter Pan hat and turned my son into Pan..Goofy ears and hat on DS again and then when asked for Minnie he turned the napkin into a huge bow and set it on her head!! She was thrilled

Assistant Server Danielo from The Philippines on the left and Server Leslie from India on the right from our MAGICal 5 day cruise last week. Danielo got off the ship Saturday morning to start his two month vacation and Leslie stayed onboard for dry dock. Both of these men were fantastic. One night my DW said she was going to go to deck 9 to get some soft serve ice cream after dinner. While the rest of us at the table were waiting for our desserts to be delivered, Leslie ran up to deck 9 and got my DW a big bowl of soft serve ice cream, she was floored when she saw the "full" bowl. I wish I had taken a pic of it, but we were too busy enjoying it!!!!!
