Default Caribbean Princess--Gay staff and FOD request?

My partner and I have sailed on the Golden Princess twice and enjoyed all of our cruise experiences very much! We are very excited about our next cruise on the Caribbean. We will sail on the April 8th, 2006 sailing and we know that there will be another Washington D.C. gay couple on board, though we have not yet met. What's the best way to request a FOD reception?

On our last cruise we met several guys from the FOD reception, and believe it or not, we still keep in touch. We are in our mid-30's and really appreciate how welocome the staff made us feel while on board. If there are any GLBT staff on board, please feel free to reply to us. We had a great time meeting with our new friends last year and hope to do so again.

Happy sailing!

Hi Andy and John,

Be sure to post this on the G/L board and on the Crewmembers board! I think (not absolutely sure) that there are always FOD meetings on Princess ships.

It appears to be a very G/L friendly line.

Have a wonderful cruise!

A good way to arrange a FOD would be to speak with your cruise director before or shortly after departure and check with them to see if they can arrange a FOD if they don't already have any planned.
