I am surprised to hear of the problem with Royal Carabbean. I did a Transatlantic last April on the Brilliance of the Seas and we had numerous FOD's. Maybe it was a fluke but some of us gathered for sail away and by the time it was ready to cruise there must have been 30-40 of us. Two ladies came up to us and ask what kind of a group it was. What a laugh. We had several FOD's throughout the cruise.
