    You might try to write to DCL (e-mail: dcl.guest.communications@disneycruise.com), provide them with your sailing date (include ship name, plus reservation or folio number) ... provide as much information as possible on who you are seeking, then ask if they have any way of looking up the information.

    Good luck!

    You said you chickened out - did not request anyone. I was trying to encourage you to request someone (of your preference) ... and cited ways of how cast members can be promoted. One of the ways cast members get promoted is based upon guests requesting specific cast members. This tells DCL that you liked that cast member enough, that you would like to be paired with them again. This tells DCL you are pleased with their service. Hope this make sense>

    We were so excited to have Munir from Brazil and Mariya from Ukraine :love:
    We had to have a picture with them before we left, they both felt like family. Nicolai at Palo Brunch and Patrijicia from the Chez Repbulic in Remy for dinner were also outstanding but we didn't get a photo with them : ( We were on the Fantasy on May 18, 2013

    Just wanted to know if anyone knew the current where-abouts of my serving team from my Alaska cruise in 2011 - Balwan from India and Sophie from Australia. We really enjoyed their company - especially Sophie's - she was a truly amazing person and we always felt that she was genuine in her interactions with us. I am just curious if anyone knew whether they were still with DCL and if so in what capacity. We are heading back to Alaska this August and would love to see them again.

    Thanks in advance,

    Aby

    Based on your post we asked for Radoslav and were lucky enough to receive him on our June 22 Fantasy cruise. It was his first cruise back from vacation and I can not rave about him enough. The server he was partnered with had no personality so thank goodness he wen above and beyond. I highly recommend him.
    Our room steward remembered us from a previous cruise and was excellent.
    We had the concierge team of Alice, Andy and PJ-- all excellent. Don't hesitate to ask for someone- it made our cruise very special.
    Last year on the Magic we had Genesis and I would highly recommend him as well.

    Genesis is my favorite! He's been our server at least 4-5 times.

    Which seating did you have? We were table 89 at late seating and I'm pretty sure Radoslav was helping with our table as well. Our Servers were Rini and Jeremy, and it was only Jeremy's second week! We loved them all!

    We love Sammy! He was there a couple of weeks ago and as you said he will be leaving at dry dock. He alo will be leaving in March for 2 months due to the medical exams and insurance requirements that DCL requires. The head server told us that he is the most requested server on the Magic. I know we always request him.

    My family was also on the June 22nd Fantasy and I remember Rini and Jeremy. We were table 88 at main seating. They were not our servers but they seemed like a good team. Our servers were just ok so I am getting the idea to request someone special for our upcoming Magic adventure.

    Not sure when your sailing the Magic, but I can recommend Jorel from the Philippines as a server or Emily from Scotland as an assistant server. They were both fantastic people :thumbsup2

    Zsolt Szep is returning from vacation to the Disney Fantasy (Main Dining Room) on September 28th (through much of February). Some of you will recall, Zsolt is one of a handful of the original "Disney Dream Team" ... and was hand selected to staff the Inaugural Sailings of the Disney Dream, and was later hand selected to staff the Inaugural Sailings of the Disney Fantasy.

    If you'd like to experience truly sensational service ... I heartily suggest you contact your Travel Agent (or DCL) to "request" Zsolt Szep (Hungary) as your server. If you do request Zsolt ... let him know you heard about him on DISboards.

    :yay:

    Having recently sailed on the Magic ... you simply MUST request "Sammy" Sompong Poonchuroensuk (Thailand) for Main Dining Room Server ... and Laslo Gion (Hungary) for Palo Server. You will not find better servers on the Magic!

    At the time, Sammy's Head Server was Neno Jekic (Croatia). We were seated a table of four ... each of us with a long list of special requests throughout the cruise, including the following to be served every night ... escargot, shrimp cocktail, Caeser salad with shaved Parmesan cheese, and Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. We do not consider ourselves as high maintenance ... rather ... we know what we like. As a Head Server, Neno Jekic turned our cruise into 14 nights of phenomenal experiences.

    Sammy's Assistant Server was I Made Swasitka (Indonesia). His first name is pronounced "E-mod-A." Some guests may not understand "Swastika" used as a name. In Thailand, "swastika" means ... may you prosper and have good fortune.

    I have taken the liberty of posting information found online, regarding the swastika ...
    "The Swastika is a symbol that belongs to the entire human race. They appear in many different forms and in almost all our ancestral cultures, existing for more than 15,000 years with different names. The Swastika was and always will be a symbol of protection and good luck. Unfortunately during the World War II, the Nazi's were effective in there misuse of the Swastika symbol."

    The Nazi's changed the design of the original Swastika. The Nazi Swastika is a black cross in 45 degrees pointing to the right (the original Swastika points to the LEFT). Please remember, the (original) swastika symbol is positive in many countries and cultures, and there is no reason to connect this to the genocide associated with World War II.

    Was wondering if anyone has seen Ciprian (server from India) and Jose (asst. server from...I forget) recently?
    We got to spend nearly 3 weeks with them back in 2010 when the Magic did the Baltic cruises and they were wonderful. We had such a great time with them.

    I had neno ( croatia) as head server too. He was sweet. Made a point if stopping by every night to check on us.

    Still wondering if server Goran ( croatia) still on magic?
