Sounds like they're the same! I'd definitely describe him as stockier. I wish I had a picture of him to show you do you could tell for sure!

YEAHHHHH!!! I sounds like it is "Ali". My DD read your post first and contacted me to tell me that Ali was on the Fantasy - we're sailing on the Fantasy on April 27th. Can't wait. Ali is our most favorite dining room head ever. He definately makes sure everything is "right". On one cruise he was overseeing Palo and he stopped by our table to let us know that he remembered us from previous cruises. I sincerely hope we are blessed with him as "head" this time.

Now, if we could have Valentin from Romania as our Server we'd be in HEAVEN.

Sugar from Jamaica and Pong from Thailand were awesome. We also fell in love with Deniz from Turkey...he was partners in crime with our 19 yo son playing pranks against our servers...loved them all!!

Ummmm, no they are not. I know we all want to be nice and complimentary. But please do not assume my behavior affected my service. However, I was extremely polite, gracious, and understanding.

They just could'nt get it together. Really, Like I wanted to help them. And get my own drink and extra napkins.


Asking for a drink, and extra napkins are common requests at a dinner table.

In a formal dining atmosphere, they should be handled quite easily.

And as I stated in my OP, Im over it. ANd I didnt let it affect my cruise one bit, because I am a polite and gracious cruiser!

Thanks to all of the suggestions!! Much appreciated!!

We were on the Fantasy March 2-9, and had Ali (Head Server), Hervey (Server), and Bagus (Asst Server) as our team. They were fabulous- the best team I've had in all of my 9 cruises.

We love Emmanuel (Phillipines)! He has been our server on numerous cruise, including our first DCL cruise many years ago.

We cruised on the Fantasy twice last year and made sure that Emmanuel was our server. Head Server Liam (Jamaica) is also very good.

I agree with this- we were incredibly polite with our waitress and did not complain about the slow service...the morning of disembarkation she was very cold to us to the point of being rude....my wife thought i may have been cheap with the tip yet i threw and extra $15 in the envelop as well as the tip ticket....never again with that one...

I agree with the above post. We had O'neill and Ninja on our June cruise and loved them. They were great and we plan on asking for them again on our May cruise in 2014.
