Thank you from CM for gifts

Hello everyone , I just received a beautiful thank you note through Facebook from a DCL worker / CM thanking me for my gifts ( candies & chocolate bars ) and a little extra $$ ! He said he really appreciated the treats & extra money & that he was eating his treats slowly as he loved them so much ! This made my day ... I know there is a lot of chat wondering if they really like getting treats but everyone I gave treats to were truly appreciative ! On my last cruise I gave a few things to the pool attendant & he had tears in his eyes . He said he had never been given anything before & after that he always came over when he saw me & thanked me again .
Small tokens of appreciation are huge to others !

we always bring extra candy and snacks onboard. The CM's do indeed really appreciate it. The last night of our most recent cruise we recieved a Magical Moment Certificate in our cabin from 2 of the CM's from the shops. We had spoken to them a few times and had given them some goodies. It is always good to to do something nice for others.

I think now with Facebook so readily accessible it happens a lot more. I stay in close contact with @5 CM's and really enjoy seeing their pictures etc. Once we are back on board, I would only act as familiar and friendly as they do- I would never want them to feel uncomfortable.

I just hope our cruise is made special. This is our first Disney cruise and if everything goes well I plan to book again onboard. I want my daughter to really be able to enjoy her time on and off the ship....going to go all out for her!!!

I'm also Facebook friends with 5 Cast Members . 3 fb chat whenever they see me online . Whenever I'm back on DCL I too only act as familiar as they do . This CM that contacted me said they were looking at their co workers friend list & saw my photo & wanted to thank me again ! I was super happy , totally made my day ...

A lot of that will depend on you and having realistic about your expectations. Nothing is always perfect and as awesome as I think DCL is, they are still a business with people who can be flawed. That being said, on every cruise I've taken, my expectations have been met and exceeded and can't think of a better vacation.

2 years ago I left our cabin steward a gift on the bed before turn down time and he couldn't thank me enough. Since we live in grape/wine country, it's only fitting for me to leave a bottle of wine and other grape items...Roland was great..hopefully he will be ours on our next cruise...
