Default Stockholder Benefits

Like many of you, I am always trying to save money when I cruise. Some of the ways we hear about are:
1. Book early
2. Be a repeat customer.
3. Book your next cruise while on your present one.
and here is a little know one:
4. Become a stockhold in the company.

Carnival offers anywhere from a $50. - $250 OBC if you own 100 shares of it's stock, depending on the length of the cruise. This offer is also good on many of CCL other venues, Carnival, Princess, Holland America, ect. Plus it also pays a dividend of about 4%.

For more information visit Carnivals website and go to: About Carnival -> Investor relations -> Sharehold Benefit.

So on your next cruise and you hear that person going around yelling, "Driinks, driinks". Drink up, I would appreciate it.

The ex dividend date was 5/21/08 so if you buy the stock now. You will NOT receive the 6/13/08 Dividend. However, the PE is 13.34 and EPS 2.90. Check it out http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=ccl

I would fax a request letter (booking number, name, sail date, ship name and a copy of your financial statement to:

CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES
Research Supervisor
Reservation Administration
3655 N.W. 87th Avenue
Miami, FL 33178
Tel 800-438-6744 ext. 70041
Fax 305-406-5882


We mailed ours and it was applied in days. The Purser's deck may not be able to do anything without the home office having the paper.

Then I would take a copy of what you have already faxed the corp office to the Purser's desk.

Good Luck and have a great crusie.

My wife and I just returned from our 7 day cruise on the Carnival Liberty out of Miami and the $100 OBC appeared on the e-documentation that Carnival sent us prior to departure. While on board they also have a program where if you put a deposit down (not necessarily booking) for another cruise you can get a $100 OBC for a 7 day cruise. This is completley refundable and you have up to five years to use it. While on board I asked if this could be combine with the stockholders benefits, one person said yes the other said no. When I returned home I s/w my cruise consultant and he said yes because the stockholder benefit is not considered a promotion.

It was nice to have an extra $100 spending money.
