I forget the Cruise Directors Name. I know his first name was Bill. Anyway we sent a letter to him requesting a FOD meeting and he told us it was company policy that he could not host one. We met another couple that requested a FOD meeting also, on the same trip, and the Cruise Director told them too that it was against company policy.
As a result, until RCCL can prove otherwise that they are NOT homophobic, they will not be earning my money.
Princess, Holland America, or NCL, companies like these that offer a gay traveler a social meeting venue, will be the cruiseline of my choice.
