Fantasy Server Recommendation

Hello,
I will be cruising next month on the Fantasy, all my favorite dining servers are on the smaller ships right now. Does anyone have a recommendation on the Fantasy?

Thank you!

I was on in the beginning of January and I had Diartha from Indonesia. I couldn't have been happier. He was so great we never wanted to miss a meal and usually went to where he was working breakfast and lunch just to see him.

+1! Requested Sergio again for March (we made sure he was going to be there). I've never requested a server before, but he was that good!!

Deniz was our head server for 15 nights on the 2011 wbpc cruise. He was wonderful! Had fried cheese sticks waiting for us every night after we requested them on night 1, brought hubby and I souffle from Palo, and stopped by each and every night to check on us. We had no idea that a head server actually did such as we only saw our head server from our prior cruise once during 7 nights.

Hi Silverfox, since we are on the same cruise, I think that is who I'll go for. Do you know his last name or what country he is from?

The last time we were on the Fantasy we had the worst service ever on a cruise and we were only a 4 top. This time we are bringing family and I want to make sure we have a good dining experience.

Thanks!

Nice! We have had Deniz a few times across the Dream and the Fantasy! Always a wonderful experience and he took great care! Would recommend!

We have sailed on the Dream since and also had great service with different servers. Hard to go wrong no matter who you get! ��

Have fun!

We loved Dewayne from Jamaica on September Fantasy cruise. You can check out my trip report to see all the extra special things he did for our son and us. He was great

DeWayne is our favorite too. He was awesome! In five cruises, he is the only CM I have praised by name on our comment cards and the only one I have written to Disney about to sing his praises.

We had Dipo recently. Amy, the assistant, was the most amazing of the entire serving team. Our entire table adored her. :D As a team, though, they made sure we all had everything we wanted - whether it was a normal menu item or not. Our head server even made sure one of the guys at the table got Indian food one night because that was what he wanted. This was the first team I've ever had that I would happily request again.
