    We had the best time on our Sept. 2012 cruise on the Dream. Don "Ducky" Williams and Stacia Martin were on board and we had dinner with them at Palos. That was the best part of that cruise, hands down.:cheer2:

    Was on Oasis this past March with Greg Louganis and Christy the ice skater making a commercial for the Olympics.

    When we sailed on the Fantasy in June 2012, we sat next to a Soccer player, we would have never known, but many of the servers from around the world kept coming up and introducing themselves. That's when we asked who that was. Apparently He's a big deal, but his name escapes me... We also noticed that the chef came out each night and prepared a special tray of food for them each night. Well on the nights they showed up that is... They only ate in the MDR's three of seven nights. pirate:

    Yes we had Larry the cable guy, lea solonga, don ducky Williams, Steven scwartze, and several others on the fantasy maiden voyage. It was awesome to meet them and be able to talk to them.

    Quite honestly, we have sailed with several but the one that sticks out is Roy Disney on the EB 2005 PC cruise. My DH and I had such a nice conversation with him and his wife. The way they treated us and made us feel "equal" was something I won't forget. Plus, they let us in on an inside joke, LOL.

    He was on our Dec., 2007 cruise. I won one of his drawings, which was very exciting because I never win anything! One day at the pool he bumped into me (literally!) and we had a wonderful chat about our preferences in Disney films and why. The best part was that he started the conversation!

    In 2009 on our honeymoon cruise, Samantha Brown was filming a Travel Channel on the Carnival Freedom. We got to briefly meet her and made several scenes in the episode!

    We had the lady who played Juliet on Lost on our Alaskan cruise back in May, 2011. I saw her and her family several times, though I couldn't figure out why she looked familiar, since I didn't watch the show. She was really pretty in person though.

    We were on the Easter 2012 sailing of the Dream, eating breakfast in Cabana's and getting ready to disembark for Castaway Cay, when my husband said "Isn't that Marlee Matlin???". I turned to look and there she was sitting with her husband and kids, eating breakfast, wearing her swim coverup and baseball hat! I thought about asking for a picture but didn't want to bother her and her family. :wave2:

    Marlee Matlin was also the narrator at Epcot for the Christmas story in 2008, which was our daughter's first trip. I think we must be connected some way!

    Years ago, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown had been on a cruise shortly before ours with their daughter. I believe it was on the Magic.

    We had Joey Fatone on our DVC Member Cruise in 2011, he did a presentation on stage and enjoyed the cruise, too. There are often various celebrities on the DVC cruises.

    We were on the Magic with Richard Karn (Al Borland from Home Improvement) He was very cordial signing autographs for some but for the most part people let him and his family enjoy their cruise.

    Back in 2000 Richard Simmons was on our Carnival Cruise, with one of his "Cruise to Lose" groups. We had heard he was on board, and walked by him on the gangway while we were disembarking and he was returning to the ship in St. Thomas.

    John Lasseter and Jay Ward were on our Pixar Cruise in September. Lasseter and his wife walked past us during the lifeboat drill. We saw Ward and his kids a couple times in the elevators. And of course we went to their presentations.

    John Stamos was on Live with Kelly just after his cruise. He couldn't stop talking about what a great time he had....so maybe he'll be back!
