Just returned from Carnival Liberty Western Caribbean cruse (12/20-12/27/08) and they didn't have any FOD meetings. I'm surprised since the Cruise Director was obviously gay (although rude and obnoxious).
We have noted that, with minor exception, the more a cruise director (or the many assistants) appears to belong in our camp the more they shun us in public. We have been allocated space for an FOD gathering in the most closeted places aboard ships by people who should have really hosted the activity.
If one cannot be "out" in of all places the cruise industry, where pray tell can we? Where would the industry be without us?
