I am a shareholder. I bought 100 shares at $63.xx just to get the room credit. The stock has been holding steady and I get $100 for 7-day cruise and $50 for 6-day or less.

Regards.
Thomas

The OBC is applied to all applicable CarniCorp brands, Princess, Cunard, P&O, Aida ets, and he amount vareis depending on the length of cruise.
You can only have OBC for one person per booking though, so no point in all members of a prty buying them - well other than they pay pretty good dividends as well.

Even though the stock has been dropping lately, they paid 4.2% dividend, the revenues are up, onboard spending (higher margins) are up, and the bookings for 2019 are strong with most ships sailing at full volume. Three more ships on order. Getting a $100 OBC twice a year is equivalent to about 3.2% return right there. It's a strong buy in my opinion, but then I'm no expert.


Regards,
Thomas
