FOD with NCL is a good thing that they have them or offer them. Nice way to meet other people. It is a mixed bag. One time I was late getting to the FOD meeting and my boyfriend made it there before me. All of the guys at the FOD on that cruise hated me because they wanted my boyfriend. It was worse than High School. That was years ago. Who knows. They were a bunch of ugly people. I still had a nice time on that cruise. Princess cruises offers FOD too. I tend to stick to the gym. Love working out on cruises.
