    I know that my family and I have our favorite Cruise Staff Cast Members, as I am sure that all of you do as well. As the Cruise Staff move around from ship to ship, I thought it would be nice to document where they all are. Since we just disembarked Disney Magic on Thursday, June 26th, in Venice, I can start the list with them:

    Name and Home
    Pierre Luc (Mayor of Bingo) - Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
    Brittany - Ontario, Canada
    Joshiie - Anaheim, California, USA
    Melanie - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
    Miguel (Adult activities) - New Jersey, USA
    Vanessa - Mexico City, Mexico
    Jenna - Manchester, England, UK
    Luke - England, UK
    DJ Matt - England, UK
    Rafael - Peru

    I know that Jenna left on vacation when we docked in Venice, so I don't know who her replacement is.

    Just a quick point of clarification, the Cruise Staff are the team that runs all of the family an adult activities for the cruise director, such as bingo, dance parties, game shows, etc. This should not be confused with the much larger crew, which does consist of the Captain and his operations, deck, security, medical, and engineering personnel; the hotel and dining staff which consists of guest services, the dining room teams, bar servers, and your cabin stewards; and entertainment team, which consists of the cruise director, the show cast, characters with handlers, the youth activities team, and finally, the Cruise Staff. I specifically started this thread to answer who the current Cruise Staff members are on each ship.

    I was on the same cruise ending in Venice on the 26th.

    -Waiter Tiago (Portugal)
    -Assistant waiter Barbara (Mexico)

    Oh how I miss Tiago and Barbara, such a great and fun and sweet team!

    -Josh the all around quiz host, stage entertainer and port adventure check-in clerk and whatnot (USA?)
    -A short small spectacled man in the Disney stores & tax free whose name I always forget (USA) but always seemed to bump into him and we had nice chats

    And of course Brent the cruise director. The cruise would have been nothing without him and his increasingly hilarious announcements as the cruise progressed.

    I was really hoping to get more responses for others that have cruised the other ships recently. Would I be better off moving this to the trip reports section?
    Also, Scott from South Africa was our Assistant Cruise Director. Not as visible to the guests as Brent was, but a great guy.

    I hope more people respond with other ships. We want to keep up with our favorite cm. we know he was headed to the Dream in July. I'm not sure my youngest will understand if he's not our next cruise.

    We were on the Wonder last month and the captain was Gus. He is from the Netherlands. I think Jimmy was the cruise director. He said he was Scranton. I found him kind of annoying. Andi from the UK was the club host. Katie from the UK was in Shutters, she was nice. I think there were about 990 other crew members on the ship. When I think of a few more, I will post again.

    This is a shot in the dark but... Has anyone seen Jose recently? He worked in the main dining rooms and was an assistant waiter on our Baltic Cruise in 2010. My parents have seen him since but I don't remember where.

    We're sailing on the Dream in Sept. and I'd love to see my Jose!

    Wouldn't surprise me if there was more than one Jose', but I saw Jose' on the Wonder yesterday.

    Shervonne from Trinidad and Tobago was our wonderful waiter.

    It's been noted that this thread was supposed to concentrate on cruise staff (the activities staff, the young folks who run around in the red white and blue shirts) and not dining servers...I'm curious myself especially about the Magic, but if the thread gets bogged down with people looking for servers it won't be a very helpful thread for its stated intent.

    Thank you for trying to get us back on the rails. What specifically are you wanting to know about Disney Magic?

    Perhaps it would be better to amend your title, or add the above detail in the first post .. It'll just get lost and not read by most people hidden in the thread.

    Melissa (USA), the port shopping expert was on the Wonder last month. She seems nice.
