A FOD "meeting" is not one as such but a gathering of gay and gay positive people who get together for social cocktails at any pre designated spot. We share information about the ship, what's in what's not and probably most importantly, make dinner plans together. Some of us may not be happy with our pre designated table mates and this is the place to see if one can join another table for either a sitting or for the duration of the cruise. It further gives you the opportunity to meet fellow passengers with similar interests to join in land tours. You may not find any advantage at such a "meeting" but you will never know unless, of course you first participate.
