FOD Response from Holland America!!!
 
I saw recently a post about Holland America not posting FOD gatherings. I sent an e-mail to them and below is my initial e-mail and their response to me. It does not seem to be very detailed but simply they just don't do it. Anyone want to ask if they will post GLBT gatherings?

Also, any thoughts on why policy and get together are in quotes???

Dear Mr. C,

Thank you for contacting Holland America Line regarding recent policy changes that have taken place on our ships.

The only "policy" is that we do not post the Friends of Dorothy "get together" on the daily programs.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions. We look forward to welcoming you aboard again in the very near future.


Warm Regards,


Sandy

I am looking to book a cruise on Holland America. My partner and I are avid cruisers and I am also a past cruiser of Holland America.

I just came back from a cruise on the Volendam and there was a FOD get together posted the second day out.

That is great to hear! I sure hope we have a posting of any kind on ours. :)

A bit tongue 'n cheek, but they only have one policy ?!?
