Are you aware if you own RCL or Carnival stock you might be entitled to ship board credit. 100 shares minimum of stock must be held.
Depending on the number of nights you cruise you can get up to $250.00 ship board credit with RCL and Celebrity (excludes Celebrity Xpeditions).
Carnival varies and is less but what the heck, better than nothing.
This also goes along with the other companies Carnival has under the corporate umbrella, as HAL.
You need your booking number, sailing date, ship, room number, loyalty #, and proof of stock held as proxy card or current brokerage statement. Of course your name and address with e-mail address.
To be honest right now would not be a good time to buy. The stock is stable but really no gains at present. We bought both these stocks over 4 years ago for investment only to find out that the investors credit was available. RCL advertises the fact on their web site, Carnival does not.
Buying now for just the ship board credit and then selling as short term you would lose in the long run (taxes will kill you). Long term is much better if you feel the stock would benefit your portfolio and gains will be substantial. Always invest carefully and do the research.

__________________ Ready to Steer towards another cruise
We've been taking the discounts on Carnival for many years. They used to tell you about it in the stock holder info they sent each year. Now they don't mention it but when I called before my last cruise it was no problem to have it applied. Matter of fact they have been offering it a lot longer than RCL. RCL has just come on the band wagon in the last few years. It really helps when you cruise every year!!! Dividends aren't bad either!!! Debbie
