For those who have asked, Dario is no longer on the ships. He left for a while several years ago and then came back for a brief stint after trying his hand at bartending in the US and Canada. He's now back in Croatia pursuing photography!
Johanna was another one of our favorites - she and her wonderful fiance Cosmin (who at the time was a waiter in the steakhouse and worked at the coffee bar) got married and had a little girl! She is no longer working on the ships either.
Alchemy crew are the reason we keep coming back to Carnival - they really are the best! We've also loved many others over the years and still keep in touch with many of them - Dzenana, Corinna, Vera, Inga, Jaelle. Tell them Alicia says Hi! if you see them :)
