Its usually 100 shares that makes up a board lot, but not always....

Investopedia explains Board Lot
For example, a stock exchange might define one board lot as equaling 1,000 shares for stock priced under $1, and 100 shares for shares of more than $1. The thinking is that standardization increases liquidity thus lowering spreads and making the market more efficient for everybody.
Okay I understand. I don't buy OTC stocks and a stock under a $1 would be delisted from New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or/and the NASDAQ. So for the stocks I'm trading it's 100 for some OTC it's a 1000. Since RCL is traded on the NYSE it's 100 shares. I also checked RCL's investor website to verify.
