My husband and I have attended one previous cruise that did have 'FOD' meetings listed. However, although we were interested in attending gay-specific events, we had never hear of this 'FOD' or 'Friends of Dorothy' so we did not go. If the cruise ships would just list the events as 'gay' events, there would be a lot more attendees. I don't think many gay people have heard of these terms 'FOD' or 'Friends of Dorothy'. It seems a bizarre term that could make sense for gay women or heterosexual men (i.e. people attracted to people named Dorothy) but certainly not for gay men.
