@jey12 yes! Just got off the Wonder and he is now dining room manager.We adored him, he was especially kind to my two year old son.

Other amazing cast members: Head server: Santana Fernandes and Assistant Server Abby Conkleton. Especially for those families with young children!

We also had Sasha at Palo and he was wonderful

Does any one know if Phillip is still a server on the Dream? Also any idea if Harper and Chris are still on as well they worked in entertainment and were very often Character handlers.

The Fantasy Maiden Voyage was March 2012 ... not 2011. I *thought* he returned to DCL for the Fantasy Maiden Voyage ... but could be wrong. As I understood, since he was newly returning to DCL, he had to be brought back as an Assistant Server. Fantasy Server friends of mine told me he was a new-return to the Fantasy when we were on the Maiden Voyage.

Palo - Ivan Frick (Hungary) ... there are TWO Ivan's in Palo on the Fantasy, so make sure you specify Ivan FRICK.

Remy - We have only ever been to Remy once ... but I will check with my Palo server for suggestions.

For Palo and Remy requests ... it is best to make the request upon embarkation, versus requesting through your Travel Agent (or DCL). This is very important to remember, as not all servers work every Brunch. When you make a request at embarkation, the Palo and/or Remy Manager is generally available ... as such ... they have access to the scheduled shifts.

*** REMEMBER, when you request someone, please remember to tell them you heard about hem on DISboards. I have found it gives the servers an extra boost of excitement ... and they tend to make sure they take extra good care of you!

If anyone has enjoyed Angela from Serbia as their assistant server we just got off the Magic and she is FINALLY headed home today. (I think she said she was supposed to get off before the refurb then got extended till November then extended again and got her plane ticket during this past cruise)
She was the best CM I've EVER had on any DCL cruise!
She told us she wouldn't be returning for 3-4 years
Hopefully we can see her again!

Just an FYI

We are cruising on the June 14 fantasy and hope Radoslav will still be there. Do they usually do 6 months on?

Some cast members have a little more leeway than others. Some are able to request shorter or longer contracts ... and some will even tweak their schedules to meet with past guests. I am not sure when his contract is to expire ... but I sent him a PM. I will let you know when I hear back from him. If he will not be on the ship, I can give you a few other names.

Hi Beth - I spoke with Rado last night. He said he believes he will indeed be on the Fantasy for you in June. I had mentioned your first name ... he told me he remembers serving you last year (about the same time of year, to the best of his recollection) ... and also told me your last name (and his spelling was fairly good). For the life of me, I do not know how these cast members remembers everything!

We were on the Wonder last week. Our very favorite server, Mladdin from Serbia is now in Palo. I don't have any suggestions for a MDR server though. We had Mladdin on our very first cruise 3 1/2 years ago and have been looking for him since then. He is amazing. If you go to Palo definitely request him.

Mladen is currently not on board. He is taking some time off between contracts.

It was just one week later in June. In all our cruises he was by far the one we loved the most! I got his name here, as that was our first time on the fantasy and hope to have him again. Thanks for checking for me.

Anyone know if Witt is still on the Fantasy? We're going on the Wonder in the fall, and I'm hoping Witt will move back over there.

Hi Steven-Could you find out if he will be there Thanksgiving week please? I have heard of everyone talking about him and would like to request him. Last Thanksgiving our serving team was fine, but I know I have had much better.

Thanks
