Why would you want to hook up with crew? Go for an officer, they can entertain you and get you a deal for travel, without the "getting fired' problem. A friend of mine has a captain in her pocket- he gets us deals to travel[ like free] and he visits in the states. We are treated like queens when we go and there is no issue. I am friends with the hotel manager and it makes it nice. By the way we are not young chickies- but 40 ish women. This has been going on for 5 years now.
