    Two years ago, we had Ivan Ivanovich on the Magic for the Baltic and the Dover/Barcelona repositioning cruise. He was leaving for the Dream. He is terrific and I hope he has made it back to the Magic for the NYC cruises. Here's hoping ...

    Does anyone know who is calling Bingo on the Magic right now? I'm hoping Trevor is back, but I doubt it.

    Has anyone had Shaka for their cabin steward lately? Last we saw him was 2010. Anyone have recent updates on his whereabouts?

    I would suggest you make your Palo reservation online, as usual. When you board the Wonder, head to the location where Palo reservations are made. The Palo Manager is generally present. You can mention who you are talking about ... hopefully, they will be able to let you know if he is onboard the ship at the time, and amend your reservation accordingly.

    As a side note, some guests have indicated a preference for either a male or female server ... a server from a specific country ... and even a server who speaks a specific language. Some have found the latter is a great way to connect with their ancestry and old roots!

    I last saw Shaka in October 2011 on the Magic. He was our cabin steward in 2009 and I have seen him several more times on the Magic. He is great!

    We saw Dwight on the Dream October 2011, and he told us he was going over to the Fantasy when it went into service. :goodvibes

    P.S. Shaka! :love: One time I went to go grab something from our room, and he was in there vacuuming during turn-down. He was jamming out to a reggae song, singing along while dancing and vacuuming at the same time. Brought a huge smile to my face that he was having so much fun.

    4/22 Mexican Riviera Wonder
    Stateroom Host: Eric Loila, super great, always said hello and remembered my name from day one. I saw him on his hand and knees scrubbing bathroom floors, he was superb.

    Harry Simmons: Head Server: Checked in every night, cut entrees and refilled drinks when the servers were busy, exactly what a head server should do!

    Lilijiana Ristic: Croatia: Assitant Server, AWESOME, friendly with the kids, amazing and fast with everything. Saw us in port and came over and said hi, chatted with us even during her VERY limited time off.

    Englebert Souza: India: Server, fun magic tricks and pretended to spill a drink on my wife several times which had the table howling in laughter as she jumped out of her seat. When my wife wasnt feeling well, he insisted I pick and entree for her, which I did, and he had it brought up to our room, free of course. Awesome!

    Tai, Australia, future cruise desk guy, I got to know him well and he bended several rules for us to book onboard. Super nice and helpful with my million different scenarios.

    JD, kids club, SO awesome with my kids, you can see him in the Disney Wonder "time of my life" video, he dancing in the kids club with a white shirt. He ran several activites and my daugthers loved him.

    Fiona, Englad, cruise staff: For some reason we just ran into her everywhere and chatted over and over, she is what I call a "real shaped" woman (my fav!), not a size zero stick, but is up there dancing during sail away and PITC party, always with a smile. She also ran Mickey Mania too.


    I got some crap on here for asking so many times what server / assitant to request, well, it paid off, I had the all star team!

    Ponz was on our Alaskan cruise June 4-11 on the Wonder. He was awesome. Even talked my DH into going on stage as John Travolta during Disco Legends night. Ponz really knew his disco. I told him you would have thought he was from that time. I loved running into him around the sip. Always had a smile.

    Just off the Fantasy yesterday, and we had great servers!

    Renata from Hungary and Timo from Germany were great! I happen to be Hungarian, so I did request a Hungarian server, and was very pleased with Renata. We were with a large family group of many different ages, and Renata and Timo were very good at keeping the little ones happy so us older ones could enjoy ourselves, too!

    Had Daniel Javor as our server at lunch one day, then saw him again at breakfast another day, and I see why he is also highly recommended! If Renata is not around on our next Fantasy cruise, I will cross my fingers and hope that Daniel is!

    Our room steward was Melvin from Honduras, and he was very nice and very, very humble. He kept our ice bucket filled, and the room was always clean and tidy when we returned, and any request I had, he made happen.

    We also had Palo brunch one morning, and met Laszlo in Palo, though he was not our server (and I did not care for the server we did have, but maybe he just was having a bad day, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt). Laszlo will definitely be requested next time we do a Palo meal, if he is still there!
