We sailed on the Victory three times in large part due to the Maitre d' at the time, Francesco Tognini. One of those people who has the ability to remember thousands of people.OFF TOPIC -
Chris - I see we are sailing together AGAIN (Dream 12/5/09).
There is a roll call running for that sailing. Drop on by and say HELLO. Perhaps we will have a chance to meet you after all these years.
We were at Baie Rouge a week ago today, and would have never discovered it were it not for your tips!
--- back on topic now....
I can't name just ONE Maître d' as a favorite. We have had the pleasure of eating in several dining rooms with many friendly and helpful people.
Here are some: Bimal, George, Paul, Freddy, Ajimi, Victor, and Stipe.
I can say that Damir failed to meet our expectations - and was MIA the entire cruise on our April 2008 sailing. Thankfully, he was not onboard last week!
