We had main dining table 90 and Jeremy helped so we tipped him as well. I could not remember Rini's name til I saw it here

My family was also on the June 22nd Fantasy and I remember Rini and Jeremy. We were table 88 at main seating. They were not our servers but they seemed like a good team. Our servers were just ok so I am getting the idea to request someone special for our upcoming Magic adventure.

Not sure when your sailing the Magic, but I can recommend Jorel from the Philippines as a server or Emily from Scotland as an assistant server. They were both fantastic people

Zsolt Szep - Disney Fantasy

Zsolt Szep is returning from vacation to the Disney Fantasy (Main Dining Room) on September 28th (through much of February). Some of you will recall, Zsolt is one of a handful of the original "Disney Dream Team" ... and was hand selected to staff the Inaugural Sailings of the Disney Dream, and was later hand selected to staff the Inaugural Sailings of the Disney Fantasy.

If you'd like to experience truly sensational service ... I heartily suggest you contact your Travel Agent (or DCL) to "request" Zsolt Szep (Hungary) as your server. If you do request Zsolt ... let him know you heard about him on DISboards.

Having recently sailed on the Magic ... you simply MUST request "Sammy" Sompong Poonchuroensuk (Thailand) for Main Dining Room Server ... and Laslo Gion (Hungary) for Palo Server. You will not find better servers on the Magic!

At the time, Sammy's Head Server was Neno Jekic (Croatia). We were seated a table of four ... each of us with a long list of special requests throughout the cruise, including the following to be served every night ... escargot, shrimp cocktail, Caeser salad with shaved Parmesan cheese, and Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. We do not consider ourselves as high maintenance ... rather ... we know what we like. As a Head Server, Neno Jekic turned our cruise into 14 nights of phenomenal experiences.

Sammy's Assistant Server was I Made Swasitka (Indonesia). His first name is pronounced "E-mod-A." Some guests may not understand "Swastika" used as a name. In Thailand, "swastika" means ... may you prosper and have good fortune.

I have taken the liberty of posting information found online, regarding the swastika ...
"The Swastika is a symbol that belongs to the entire human race. They appear in many different forms and in almost all our ancestral cultures, existing for more than 15,000 years with different names. The Swastika was and always will be a symbol of protection and good luck. Unfortunately during the World War II, the Nazi's were effective in there misuse of the Swastika symbol."

The Nazi's changed the design of the original Swastika. The Nazi Swastika is a black cross in 45 degrees pointing to the right (the original Swastika points to the LEFT). Please remember, the (original) swastika symbol is positive in many countries and cultures, and there is no reason to connect this to the genocide associated with World War II.

Was wondering if anyone has seen Ciprian (server from India) and Jose (asst. server from...I forget) recently?
We got to spend nearly 3 weeks with them back in 2010 when the Magic did the Baltic cruises and they were wonderful. We had such a great time with them.

Anyone know which ship Kendall from Trinidad & Tobago is on these days? We really liked him and missed him last time (left for vacation the day we boarded). Thanks!

I used to work at a hotel that had tapestries displayed with swastikas on them. Despite trying to explain that it wasn't something the nazis created, and all the reasons you listed, I still had several guests huff and leave upset. Oh well, didn't miss them, lol.

Our favorite CM is named Yelena, from Serbia I believe. She's a bartender and certified mixologist. We met her in Sept 10 on the wonder, and in sept 11, she was supposed to be on the dream, and someone told us she'd been promoted, but was on vacation when we cruised. We're hoping to see her this Sept on the Fantasy!

Off the Magic a couple of weeks ago. Sampong and I Made were the best servers we have ever had. Their head server has changed but these two are the best.

Anyone know if Liam Scott from Jamaica (head server) is still on the Fantasy? If so, we'd like to request him again in October.
Thanks!
