Thanks. I had called NCL and the woman on the phone tried to tell me she didn't know about these meetings, but she assured there were lots of other fun things to do on the ship! I finally had to ask her if she knew what I was taling about. She said no. I tried to explain what these meetings were and she just said, "oh, I don't know!" Nice but clueless!

Thanks so much for responding!!!!!

It always cracks me up when you look in the Freestyle daily the normal the list of events goes something like this: Wine tasting 1PM, 2 pm Matini Clinic, 3pm Margaretta Madness, 4 pm Pub crawl, 5 pm Friends of Bill W..

In some ways that is funny, other ways it is sad. I do know there are lots of people who do not know what FOBW is, especially the younger generation.

I'll admit my ignorance. Friends of Bill G would be Microsoft fans. I know Carnival usually have events for Friends of Dorthy. Same thing?

Nope - NCL also has Friends of Dorthy.

It bothers me that the representatives who answer the phones, and, obviously need to know all about the ships..don't..shame on them for not training them better...

I found it a little disturbing as well. I don't know how a phone rep could know so little about which she speaks.

I also asked her about exercise classes on board. She knew nothing as well. I wasn't asking for the exact schedule - just what classes might be offered. She had absolutely no idea.

I appreciate all the responses here. They've been very helpful.
