Default FOD meeting on Grand Princess

I was recently reading the Patters from the Grand (7/03) and saw that there was an FOD meeting on the Monday at 12, noon.

Does anyone know if this is a standard on this ship or if it needs to be requested at time of boarding?

Thanks,
Todd.

Todd,

I was on the Grand last Thanksgiving and there was an FOD and I believe that it was Monday too.

I didn't attend but am friends with one of the Ass't Cruise Directors who was on board and he 'ran' the meeting so to speak.

I was on the Sun Princess last week and there wasn't an FOD that I saw, but there was on on the Dawn Princess Honolulu to Vancouver in May.

I did go to the one in May on the Dawn, but have never been to any others, not a big deal for me.

Don't wait for an announcement in the Patters. Go directly to a cruise director or an assistant (they are very often gay) and ask if any FOD meetings are scheduled. If not, request one.....or more !!!!!!! That's what we did on the Sun last October. Princess gave us a great meeting place over-looking the main pool that was very private. It had a bar, lots of tables and chairs with umbrella's......just perfect ! The barmaid assigned to our group ( about 20 ) was fun and not at all judgemental. Once we met in the Disco and it was fun too, but not good for conversation..... music TOO loud ! There were 3 meetings during the 10 day trip.

Enjoy ! J&K

Default FOD meeting on Grand Princess

FOD is an acronym for "Friends of Dorothy." Kind of like a 'code word' for gay. Stemming from Dorothy (Judy Garland) of the Wizard of Oz.

In years gone by, when it wasn't so PC to outright ask someone if they were gay you would ask (so I'm told!), "Are you a friend of Dorothy's?" If the person didn't have a clue what you were talking about, you knew they wern't gay, but if they did then...

Thank you!!

So you can just go up to the cruise director and ask if there is a FOD meeting?

That's cool. I am doing the Western Carribean on the Grand Princess - Nov 2. I haven't been on a cruise before and am going with my brothers and their wives- and I was hoping there might be a way to meet up with other gay people on the ship.

yea!
