  1. Tak....Glad you had a copy. I am reposting it so it will be easier to read. As noted on the form there is a complete list at the reception desk which is very extensive.
  2. For me this works well. I've posted this before but the next time you are on board have the Crystal Society Hostess/Host print out a copy of all of your past voyages. It's a wonderful printout having not only the date, ship, number of milestones for each voyage but also what room you were in. It will also include the cruise you are on so once at home you have a record. What I've done is summarize this on a spreadsheet, (ship, date, number of days and number of milestones) and I add to this any pending cruises with the same set of information which helps me to plan how we might use milestones. Keith
  3. We had one visa. Probably for multiple visits as we visited three different ports plus had a couple of overnights at Ho Chi Minh City. I remember the price being very reasonable. On a related note for Vietnam when you arrange with private tour operators they will ask you for your passport details for you and anyone else touring with you. It is legitimate as they can't get into the port such as in Ho Chi Minh City without the information. Just letting you know as some people worry about it but it's something they all need. Keith
  4. From what I can see recently Crystal began showing the number of Crystal Milestones on the Crystal Cruises guest copy for Cruise Reservations. A new section has been added titled Cruise Level which is right below the Cancellation Policy Section and directly above the Dining Section. This is something that used to be on the Crystal Invoice and when they went to the new system it was not shown. I am glad to see it has been added back in. Keith
  5. I guess they moved this over to the Crystal Cruises board. We always just have Crystal get the visa on board since it is convenient and they do get there for Vietnam and Cambodia. The Cambodia visa looks to be $50.00. Not sure what the charge will be for Vietnam. You can have your TA followup with Crystal on this. The last time we were there the cost varied depending on what type of Visa one needed. For example if just getting off and returning each day and arriving back to the ship by late evening the cost was one amount and for those staying off the ship there was a different cost. I've always found the costs to be reasonable for the visas obtained on board the ship. Keith
  6. I just want to note Roys' photos are from Deck 7 and not from the Verandah Rooms on Deck 8 or 9 which the OP J80crew asked about. Keith
  7. This sounds like the Graham and Jane we know. They do enjoy their Trivia (and Paddle Tennis for Graham). Sounds like a great team effort. 😀 Keep enjoying. Keith
  8. Kathie, I am glad that you and Tim tried Silk for dinner and enjoyed the experience. I enjoyed your photos and narrative about Malaga. ChansonDeLaMer....Glad you are enjoying the cruise. I feel the same way about Luxe. I think it is a perfect venue for the Meet & Mingle Party for the reason you mentioned. The room benefited from the dry dock when they removed the railing which really opened up the room. Nice to see the additional prizes being given out to the winners of Team Trivia. I hope that continues going forward for those who play team trivia. Congratulations to Arlene & Gil. Everyone on board continue to enjoy every minute. Keith
  9. Miami is quite a lot better now. I also feel the same about the airport and the city. There are tons of taxis (and I mean tons) so you should have a very little wait. They let a certain amount in at a time and the rest are lined up and ready to enter the port. And there is UBER. My preference of the two is UBER because of the quality of the vehicles and the drivers. We have sailed a lot of times in and out of the Port Of Miami the last 10+ years. During a pre-cruise stay we often walk over the bridge into the port one or more times so we have seen the port many times. We've been there with one or two ships in port and we've been there when every berth has a ship in port. On a related note the downtown Miami area has changed considerably and with each passing year gets better and better. I now prefer it much more than Fort Lauderdale for a pre or post cruise stay. When we take the Crystal Transfers (which we do in various ports) we go with a private one. It is more expensive than the shared bus. For us I prefer it for several reasons. For others a shared transfer might be what they want. With the private transfer we have an assigned time to be at the area near the Reception Desk on Deck 5 which is typically before our transfer arrives. One of the two concierges will meet us there and we will be depart as soon as the vehicle has arrived. We will claim luggage and if using a luggage service will turn it over to them except in some selected ports (not USA) where the port agent take it and we don't have to clear customs. Like most things everyone has their preferences. Keith

  11. Becky, after reading sidwich's post and thinking this through I do realize that the folks at the computer university did scan a document for me at their desk and put it on my thumb drive. So most definitely they can do this. I actually remember the document they scanned. It was the World Cruise 2022 handout which later I posted to Cruise Critic. Keith
  12. Becky, You are very welcome. I am not sure. About scanning. I’ve just used an app. I used to bring a small scanner but no longer do that. Keith
  13. We had the opportunity to experience the wonderful cuisine on board Crystal Mozart in May of this year. Keith
