Default friends of Bill W

Does Celebrity have 'friends of Bill W' meetings? Any tips or opinions on cruising with this line? We're in our 40's with no kids and looking to relax. Thanks to all!

Excellent choice of cruise line, and you'll see Bill W meetings scheduled every day... just pay attention to the ship's daily activities listings.

Who is Bill W?

"Dr. Bob" and "Bill W." were the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Thus, "Friends of Bill W." is the discrete code for AA meetings.

You'll also see gatherings for "Friends of Dorothy" on some ships. "Friends of Dorothy" is the code for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, etc., meetings.

I didn't know whether to laugh or groan during my last cruise (3/17/06).

Exerpt from daily:

4:30pm Friends of Bill W & Lois meeting ..........Michaels club
5:15pm Enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail ..........................Cova Cafe & wine bar.

I think they could have seperated the two events a little better. Even worse...this happened daily not just once.

Most recent cruises:
Celebrity Century - CocoCay 01/12/06
Celebrity Mercury - Mexican Riviera 03/17/06
Celebrity Mercury - Alaska 09/08/06
Celebrity Century - Freeport 01/04/07
RCL Monarch OTS - Ensenada 01/11/07
Celebrity Zenith - W. Caribbean 03/23/07
Upcoming cruises:
Azamara Quest - CocoCay 10/24/07
Celebrity Century - W. Caribbean 01/03/08
Celebrity Galaxy - Mediterannean 06/09/08
Celebrity Millenium - PNW 09/19/08
