I have a similar story to Pat's. We sailed on the Horizon January, 2000. When walking into the dining room the first night, a waiter from India ran after me and said, "I was your waiter on the Century, remember?" It was from our 1997 cruise on the Century. He remembered me almost 3 years later. Of course I remembered him - he was such a nice person and excellent waiter. He even made a point to tell our waiter to take especially good care of us. I felt badly because I did not remember his name and, because he was not our waiter for this cruise, I could never get close enough to him to read his name badge. I couldn't greet him by name each time I saw him, so I would just wave and say hi.
