When you walk into a bar and the bartender stops his Cognac Tasting seminar to come out from behind the bar to give you a hug. Or when you walk in the dining room on the first night's dinner and Head Waiters and Servers cause a big commotion because they are happy to see you.
And to me....THIS is what makes DCL special.
various CM's and officers that you met on previous cruises remember you and your kids and give hugs too.
I have a similar experience, Mertha (don't remember where he's from) remembers me so well that on our past 3 cruises, whenever my favorite ice cream flavor is out (pineapple? I think) he grabs a bowl and gives me a heaping bowl of ice cream! Always nice to be treated like royalty.My story:
Went on a family cruise one year with DD, DSiL, DGS (Teen), DW and me had Typhoon from Turkey as our server. 16 months later DW and I made a last minute reservation, went to PC for embarkation lunch, Typhoon saw us walking up to PC, and he came out of line from where the servers were escorting the cruisers to their tables. He served us lunch. We went to the table assignment change meeting, requested Typhoon as our server and it was granted. Typhoon had gone home twice and gotten married during those 16 months, yet he still recognized us.
