Someone else already posted a picture of Vivian, but here she is again with Andrew in July 2007 on the Magic. We adored both Andrew and Vivian!

Then there is Daniel (England) the Food and Beverages Manager.
He goes back and forth from the Magic and Wonder.
We all LOVE him!
He has been on at least 7 of the 9 cruises we have done in the past 2 years. We run into him at least 3-4 times a day...everyday. Even on the Panama Cruise.
Wonder or Magic it does not matter...HE IS THERE.
We joke he has tracking on us to keep an eye on us.

Does anyone know if Dante from the Phillipines is still on the Magic. I thought he was great.

We also had Aleksandra as our head server and she would come by our table each night. She really befriended my DS and would bring him corn on the cob each night.

Attempting my first posting of a picture. This is "Elizabeth" from Hungary and Vishal from India on the Wonder last month. They were great, and he was especially great with the kids at the next table. However, our all-time favorite servers were Dwight from Jamaica and Areli from Chile. We had them in December 2005 on the Magic. We often think of Dwight and wonder if he fulfilled his dream of owning his own restaurant in Jamaica.

We had Yolande on our June cruise and she was definitely the best head server we've had.

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...
Fitz is now a head server and RUNS the dining room. We Fitz as well. He totally took great care of us and I was truly the BEST part of our cruise (besides family time). We think he was exceptional as we have big time food issues in our family. I would look for a picture of him as well.

Fitz was our head server on the EB and we LOVED him! He would give my 19 year old sister a good natured hard time every night. She would see him across the ship and shout "FITZ!" and he would come running over. He was truly the best head server that we have ever had on the Magic and we truly enjoyed when he would come over to the table each night to talk to us.

Andrew was our server in January 2007. Our assistant server was from Costa Rica and he did all the magic tricks. I can't remember his name, but that doesn't mean he wasn't a great assistant server! They were both GREAT!!!!!

If I remember correctly Andrew is married to one of the server's in Palo. I can't remember her name for sure, but I think it was Carmen. (Unless it was Vivian, and that's her in the picture!)

This is Pirom and Gabriella from our WB Repo cruise this past May...

They spoiled us silly!!!

Each night no matter what... Pirom met my mom (she's 76) at the front entrance and escorted her in... she was the first to order and every evening he would give her a hug on her way out. Gabriella was so friendly!!! By the end of 15 nights together we didn't want to let them go!!!



& this is John... our Head Server from Scotland...




& this is Cecelia from Palo... She took care of us for both dinner and brunch!!!



& yes...that's Planky who does have his own TR...
