On my last 2 HAL cruises there were FOD parties announced in the daily newsletter on both the Volendam and Veendam. Volendam was during my dinner sitting so I missed that, but on Veendam there was a grand attendance of 1, me. I did meet a gay couple later in the cruise, but they didn't know what FOD were. They do now. . Enjoy your cruise!
I just got off the Westerdam, was on it for Thanksgiving. There were four FOD parties organized by Michell and Shannon of the Cruise Staff. They were professional, helpful and more than willing to do anything to make these a success including our choosing Where they were to be daily. HAL got it going on.
