Default Shareholder Benefit Extended Indefinitely

Everybody,

After renewing the shareholder benefit annually for the past several years, parent company Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. has issued an indefinite renewal. The terms are the same as before -- you must own at least one hundred (100) shares and submit proof of ownership and your booking information before departing for your cruise to receive the benefit. And the amount of the benefit,

* $250 on cruises of fourteen (14) or more nights,

* $200 on cruises of nine (9) to thirteen (13) nights,

* $100 on cruises of six(6) to eight (8) nights, and

* $50 on cruises of five (5) or fewer nights

remains unchanged. According to the letter, the benefit is valid only on the company's Azamara Cruises, Celebrity Cruises (except MY Celebrity Xpedition), and Royal Caribbean International brands.

Norm.

Since we have another sales pitch for purchasing Royal Caribbean stock, it should be noted that almost all cruise lines offer the same or better stock holder credits.

If you cruise five or more times per year and can use the stock holder discount (sometimes it can not be combined with certain offfers) then it MIGHT make sense to consider purchasing the stock of any good cruise line that you enjoy. Any stock purchase should be based on the advice of a qualified advisor and certainly not on the idea of getting a small on board credit on any cruise line.

As I have said before in a similar discussion on this forum, that given the state of the economy, the world situation and the ever rising price of fuel, for me, I would not be that interested in purchasing stock from any cruise line, for $3,000 - $4,000 just to try and get a hundred dollar, or so, on board credit on my one cruise per year.

How do you interpret this thread as a sales pitch?? The OP was simply relaying information regarding the on board credit afforded to stockholders.

It seems that most of your posts contain some kind of barb towards something; be it the cruise line or the poster. Can't you just make your point without all the drama? Enough is enough!

Thank you, Richsea - at least I am not the only one that is really tired
of the verbal back-and-forth between these two people. Their advise
is welcome on many points but this underlying "irriatation with each other"
is getting VERY OLD.
