Thanks

Last November there were things in the daily paper, but they were not well attended. There was a reason, there was a pied piper group on board with about 700 LBGT guests, so it was a FOD every minute of every day!  I do no tbelieve they called them FOD, I think they were a GLBT Gathering in the daily. 

 

I also know that the John Heath GLBT group cruises will be on the Equinox the week after thanksgiving and there will be a lot of GLBT on that sailing as well.

I don't think FOD is used any more by ANY line! The Eclipse used to have a LGBT meeting on the activity board near guest services. It was NEVER in the daily news sheet. The meetings were always poorly attended. I mean Cunard was loud & proud & posted it daily in the paper. You'd think Celebrity, which kind of "brags" how Gay supportive they are, could do better. We did 2 cruises on Oceania & they are pretty awful about posting it as well. We still saw plenty of family on board, however.

We have previously attended GLBT get togethers on X which used to be listed in the daily planners. The problem is that they are often held at The martini bar at 7.00 or 7.30pm when the martini bar is really busy so it is difficult to know who is there for the get together and who isn’t.  
 

Princess handle this much better as it is usually held in the Wheelhouse Bar at 5.00pm which is a quiet venue and time.
