I've never had the same server twice. They've all been pretty good. Probably the one we had on our last cruise (on the Fantasy) was the best so far. Very friendly and efficient
I don't remember her name though

We have always had good ones except for twice. We had one 4 times before he retired but when we were on the Fantasy this summer he saw us. We were delighted to find out he may be moving to the Magic this spring. Sure hope so but if not we have another waiter on the Magic that we like. Just need to know who to request. It also helps their ratings if they are requested.

I did request a server once and it never came through
Not a huge deal as the server we wound up with was fine.
Good to know that the request helps them out.

I agree with the pick-your-pricepoint for airfare and just book it when it's at the price you think is good. If you wait too late, you won't get the flight schedule you want or you won't get to sit together (if that's important) or you will end up with a middle seat between strangers who will fall asleep and drool on you We picked out price point and watched for several weeks before booking - only once have we seen the price dip and it wasn't by much. Today's price is $39 more than what we paid - and that's about the highest it's gone. Because we wanted to sit together and have decent location on the flights, it was in our interest to book early when we did. We like a side, two seats together, one row in front of the other so we can hand off stuff or change seats without disrupting other passengers (or being disrupted by others).

Gydell - who is your favorite server? We have only once had the same waiter - and it was the assistant waiter we had on our very first cruise in 2005 - he was our assistance waiter in Alaska in 2011, so that was fun to see him again. We saw our waiter from the Baltic in 2010 on the Alaska cruise as well and he remembered us! It wasn't a fake remembering, either, because he remembered that Nathan always wanted a bowl of grapes and some lemon wedges at dinner He would come by to say hello from time to time during the week. I will say that our very best serving team was in the Med in 2007 - Andrew and Vivian - maybe it's because we spent 10 nights together and we went to dinner every night because they made it so very easy! Any more we skip dinner in the dining room about as much as we eat there - I always like to go on rotation night because I love the creme brulee cheesecake they serve in Parrot Cay and always ask for it regardless of which restaurant we're in on the nights they are serving it I will definitely get my fill this summer!

We are now at the push for the end of the school semester - this week of classes and next week is exams. I was hoping there would be no Latin exam for the boys so they could have Tuesday off as neither have exams in the other period that tests that day, but they do have a test in Latin. I'm very excited that they want to go to Pompeii because of their Latin class, so that is our #1 excursion to book when the window opens this spring.

Laurie - we have some of the same places on our list for our tour of Rome - circus maximus and the forum for sure. My BIL/SIL were telling us some other places we might be interested in but I need them to email them to me so I can put them on our list.

Your server could have been on leave. That happened to us once.

Our Christmas tree is so barren of gifts this year because we are putting so much towards this trip. I am thinking of getting Santa hats to wear onboard and celebrating Christmas in July. What about the rest of you? Feel the same way??

Happy holidays everyone. Just got off the Magic Dec 21st. Had a great time. All of the CM are excited to go to the Med next summer and a few are asking for extensions on their contracts so they can stay through July 9th.

We requested a certain server on the cruise we were just on, but he was on vacation. Got new ones and they were great.

Can't wait to get back on June 15-July 9th for 24 nights of Magic!

June 27 Venice cruise

Hello everyone
Just wanted to say hello and introduce ourselves. I am Nancy and my DD is Nancy-Paris (will be age 9). We just got off the Panama Canal repositioning (still swaying but less than yesterday) with the Wonder. It was an absolutely lovely cruise! This will be our 9th Disney, with our first in the Med years ago with Disney.
While on the most recent cruise of 14 days, I was reminded once again how much I adore sea days. The 12 day Venice cruise is jam packed with wonderful ports, and don't like that we will just running around, not enjoying Disney as much. DD especially enjoyed bonding in the Lab with other children.
I have a question to ask---is anyone else waiting to confirm after the final payment is due?

Six months from today we will be boarding for our cruise!

It seems like a long way away but it will be here before we know it, especially as we get closer to the dates we can book excursions.

Anyone on this cruise going to be at WDW for Marathon Week-end in a couple of weeks? Hoping to see you at the WISH meet if that is the case.

Welcome aboard to our new folks!

I think I read that someone besides me will be staying at the Hotel Petit Palace Boquería Barcelona. Does anyone remember who it is?
