Let me just say, I am not a stocker lol. I would love to be able to book a cruise with the same server we had a few years ago if he is still at carnival. His name he went by was Chubby from Hungary! He was the best thing of our cruise and was great with my son who was 7 at the time and only wanted a cheeseburger to eat every seating. Now he's 17 and we are discussing taking another cruise and think it would be so cool to see him again and take another picture of the two of them 10 years later. Anyway it was just a thought. Thanks
I don't know Chucky but know what you mean about favorite servers. We have met some great ones on board and have even had the pleasure of seeing a few of them on other ships from time to time.
Our last cruise on the Fantasy we had Ivanka from Croatia. She was such a dear sweet girl. Ivan on the Dream and then on the Holiday also from Croatia was marvelous. On two of our first cruises we had a server named Dennis who was so attentive to details and then we had Fernando who was the biggest flirt but so much fun to get up and dance with. Felt like we were dancing around the dining room with Gils Marini (sp).
This is why we stick with assigned seating. We love getting to know the servers and having dinner with the same people each night; We still maintain friendships after several years with some of the dinner partners we have met on ships.

Since Chubby, was such a great server, he probably has gotten a promotion or two, so good for him!! You don't say what cruise line or ship you were on....his promotion, if he got one, could have had him on several different ships over the years, so the odds are not in your favor.....let us know what ship you were on, maybe someone has a clue......Take a cruise anyway, if you don't find him
Trip, with her book & tea!

I am not sure why but we have had great servers in the past, and a few poor ones lately. I almost wish I had experienced the poor one sooner so I realized how great the waiters have been. Good waiters make sure your food is warm and you get the center cuts etc. and they are fast with out you feeling rushed. Mike
