Who has requested a specific server?

Did you end up with the server you requested?

I did for our cruise last month on The Fantasy.
We had Toto on what was his last Magic cruise in January 2012 before he switched over.

My family of 8 loved him so much. We were so well taken care of.
The kids kept saying how they hoped we had him again.
So I called and made the request for him.

I didn't tell anyone but my husband that I called.
I was so disappointed when he didn't show up at our table the first night.
The next morning at breakfast in Enchanted Garden I asked another server if he was onboard and he told me that he had gotten off the ship the morning we boarded.
So then I told the family I did ask for him but he was on vacation.
Maybe next time.

We have put in a request but it's a big one! Tina and Ari were our amazing servers so the Fantasy last week! Our next cruise is on the Wonder and I've put in a request to have them!! I jokingly asked them if they'd like to join us as we booked our next cruise with our table mates and they said 'yes!' Tina said she's had friends do this so it was worth a try! I've contacted DCL but the gal there didn't sound too positive.

We'll see. It would be great if it happens but we also know it's a huge request!

Has anyone successfully requested a crew member to with them to another ship?

Hi Ontario (I'm from waterloo )

Wow!! That is so funny that you requested this. We were on the dream last year and loved our servers. We are booked on the fantasy this May and when I was talking about requesting servers my husband said that the servers from the dream said we could request them, even for another ship. I didn't believe my husband because I didn't remember them saying that. I'm so doubtful that request would actually be granted . I did make a request for specific servers on the fantasy based on some threads I read here, we'll see if we get our wish. Now I'm wondering if I should request my servers from the dream??

If the cast member happens to move the the ship you are sailing on, they can try and make it happen. If they are not on the ship you are sailing on, it will not happen.

We received our server request on the Wonder in 2012. We had an amazing team on the Wonder in January of 2011 so we requested one or the other for our cruise in 2012. We got one of them and we were so excited to see her again
We got lucky too as it was her last cruise on the Wonder before heading to the Fantasy.
Unfortunately, she left DCL right before our Fantasy cruise so we couldn't request her again.

We are doing the 2-night cruise to nowhere on the Wonder this May. I'm hoping we get another great serving team on that cruise (and that they will still be on the ship in August so we can request them for our Alaska cruise).

We have requested sever several times and gotten our request. You have a challenge when you request the server and assistant because they change partners sometimes especially after a vacation. You might want to request either or.

Went on a family cruise one year with DD, DSiL, DGS (Teen), DW and me had Typhoon from Turkey as our server. 16 months later DW and I made a last minute reservation, went to PC for embarkation lunch, Typhoon saw us walking up to PC, and he came out of line from where the servers were escorting the cruisers to their tables. He served us lunch. We went to the table assignment change meeting, requested Typhoon as our server and it was granted. Typhoon had gone home twice and gotten married during those 16 months, yet he still recognized us.

Hi Waterloo! Happy snow day.

I figure it can't hurt to try and at least put it out there! I will be totally shocked if we arrive to find Tina as our server (especially since she's been on the Fantasy since it left Germany!!) but it was worth asking. Time will tell....

PS - If you're looking for recommendations for servers on the Fantasy we loved Tina from Croatia and Ari from Thailand. They're the ones we've requested for our Wonder voyage.

Our server in Jan 2013 was Brent Humphrey and we asked to be in his rotation again last month on the Fantasy. DCL made it happen and we had a great time.His assistant server, Joseph, was new to DCL. He was very (mock) frustrated with our table, since were able to quickly solve all of his puzzles and brain teasers he offered... ( I'm an engineer )
