Favorite Servers on the Wonder

We will be going on the Wonder for the first time in April.

Just curious if anyone has any favorite servers. We are cruising with another family and it’s their first Disney Cruise. We’d like to request a server team that would be memorable and fun for the kids (all tweens and teens) .

We’ve had some great servers on the Magic that really made our trip special. It would be nice to share that experience with our friends on the Wonder.

Any thoughts are appreciated!

Zaldy! He's from the Philippians. My wife and I had him for our honeymoon cruise on Nov 14th. He's been with the ship for 10 years, he joined the team a year after it debuted.

Ali (head server) was a delight. Princess Judy (server) was super. DO NOT call her "Judy." It is "Princess Judy." Kidding....but she's really fun and joked a lot about how she "could" be addressed as "Your Majesty," etc.

Wayan was our server from our Christmas cruise that we just did and he had a total of 9 of us, including 4 girls ages 7, 7, 5 and 4. Even did some magic tricks. Orlando was the assistant server. They always made sure that the girls were served quickly and that we were always able to get them out to the kids club so we could have our dessert and coffee in peace (!). One of our girls really only liked the "flat bread" and always brought her some.

Have fun!

Sarah

Good question. With the Dream coming online now it will be interesting to see how Disney has moved people around with all the new hires they have had to bring on board. We had Mehmet and Damien (from Turkey and Poland respectively) at the end of August. We never got into the discussion regarding the Dream although it would be great to see them again when we go back this August. They were both great with our girls but it is DCL and you would expect the service to be fab. Was not disappointed.

We did it Disneyland, in the knowledge that most of the people I talked to thought it would be a financial disaster - closed and forgotten within the first year. Walt Disney

We were on the Dec 12-16th Disboards PODcast cruise. We had Gordana from Croatia, as our server. She was wonderful. Did her jon excellently, and was wonderful to talk to each evening. Very engaging and thoughtful. Alan was our assistant server. He presented a couple of issues with his drink refilling tasks, but was for the most part a good server. We didn't have any children or teens at our table so I can't speak to how they would handle them, I'm sure they would be wonderful and professional. I will say that Alan spent time at the table flirting with the three women that were there. We were at a six top. He was fun and funny. I will certainly miss them on the west coast.

I'm pretty sure server Alex Ocampo is on the Wonder right now but not sure for how long. We had him on the Magic in 2008 and requested & got him again in 2009. He is fantastic!! From what I understand he has a request in for the Dream so I am hoping that gets granted before we cruise in March on the Dream as I want my sister to meet him, but please check when u get onboard the Wonder to see. If he is & you have the privilege of having him as your server please tell him Pam from NC said hello!

We had Mladen from Bosnia/Croatia, sorry can't remember exactly, on the Wonder as our server for our B2B last year. Did an excellent job.

Servers from past cruises on the WONDER. If you should get LlOYD or BANJO , you will be in great hands , these two servers are ''TOP SHELF".

Alex and Jen

As mentioned below Alex is the very best server on the Wonder... He will be a head server one day so get him while you can... he has a new asst server who is also gaining a lot of attention (Jen)... good luck!

Thanks again for all the feedback!

Just one question, are Alex and Jen the same as Alex Campo and his asst server?

Glad to see that Josipa also had two recommendations!

Thanks so much!
